New Years Fakenham & Cheltenham
Happy New Year to all our stable followers!
Six runners today, two at Fakenham and four at Cheltenham.
12.45 - Summit Like Herbie
Won over 3m 2f at Doncaster from 98 just over a month ago and steps up to 3m 5f on 102 here. Not gone this trip before but at this stage, should suit and despite giving weight to all, has a good chance here. Zac Baker rides in this amateur riders race.
2.30 - All In Love
Has recently joined us from France where he was placed over both hurdles and fences over trips of around 2m 2f in May and June of 2020. Has come to us in very good order and looks to be a very nice prospect. Is up in trip to 2m 4f over hurdles here and we’re hopeful of a good show. Looks to be good each way value, Amateur Ben Bromley rides and claims what may prove a valuable 7lbs.
12.50 - Undersupervision
Has run all three novice chase outings here this term, all in small fields over 3 to 3m 1+f and despite a fall in the middle of those three, has acquitted himself well, showing improvement last time. More to come and should appreciate the extra furlong and the ground. Can go close if not better, Sam Twiston-Davies in the saddle.
1.25 - Fantastikas
Steps back in trip here from 3m to 2m 4*f, but has shown that he’s versatile already though still very much a work in progress. This is a high class renewal and will tell us exactly where we are with him, but there’s plenty to come and a good run can be expected with him staying on at the end. Can prove good each way value, Sam aboard.
2.00 - Vienna Court
Went very well to win the mares handicap impressively three weeks ago from a mark of 123. Is up 12lbs for that but over the same course and distance can still be a threat to all on similar ground. Looks to have good each way credentials but we hope for better. Sam rides.
3.10 - Guard Your Dreams
Fulfilled some potential last time with a fine win in the grade 2 hurdle over 2m 1f three weeks ago. Steps up by 3+f here under a penalty, but looks to still be improving and another bold effort can be expected. Sam in the saddle.
Hopefully, a winner or two amongst them to launch the New Year!
