Cadeau George put in a fantastic effort to win at Huntingdon on Boxing Day under Tom Bellamy. He made the running in the 3m 1f Hurdle but was headed three out, but when Tom put him under pressure he rallied brilliantly to lead close home. George had been off the track for 656 days before his previous run at Bangor-on-Dee to come third two weeks ago. He definitely came on for that run and showed true spirit to return to his winning ways. He will stay over hurdles for the time being, but it is just great to get him back in the winners enclosure for his patient owners Genesis Racing.
Today we have Treaty Girl running at Warwick. She was second last time out around Cheltenham over 2m 5f. Today she runs in the Mandarin Chase, a 3m 2f chase at Newbury. She is doing well at home and should relish the step up in trip. It would be nice to win this again after Silvergrove won it off of top weight last year.
Also today we have Marten in the bumper at Warwick. This will be his second start on the track and hopefully he has come on well for his first run.
Next week we have a few entered with the likes of Alpine Secret, Pithivier and Bally Gilbert.
