LE BREUIL SHINES ON DEBUT
The weekend followed on nicely after a good week with The Megsons’ Global Citizen making his much-anticipated seasonal debut and Le Breuil heading to Huntingdon for his Chasing debut.
Global headed to Ascot for the competitive Listed Hurdle over 2 miles and he didn’t disappoint, carrying top weight was always going to be a huge ask but he ran a cracker, his jumping was superb and he showed his class throughout, he turned for home looking very much in control but between the last two carrying top weight and with it being first time out he just seemed to get tired. He ran a gallant second and lost nothing in defeat.
That run should now put him spot on and we’re are excited to see him out again, he has an entry in the Greatwood so we will have to see whether he takes this up.
Emma Collins’s Le Breuil made his return to the track in fine style and his debut over fences at Huntingdon in the same race that Willoughby won last year. With the ground on the quick side there were a few non runners so the race was a dual between Le Breuil and Real Warrior with Le Breuil going off 1/9F. He put in a fine round of jumping to win in good fashion under Daryl. He too has an entry at Cheltenham on the Friday.
At the end of the week we hit a few cross bars with horses running well but just missing out on the top spot. One to note that ran a brilliantly was Paul and Clare Rooneys’ Anightinlambourn. This lovely mare was just beaten on her debut after not having the easiest of paths through the race. She looks to have a bright future and we look forward to seeing her next time out.
This week brings up some exciting horses ready to make their seasonal debuts with the likes of A Hare Breath, Nestor Park, Creep Desbois, Cavok, Kildisart and others with entries so fingers crossed for a good few days
