On Wednesday we were delighted to get a win on the board with HABESHIA. It was especially pleasing as Mr Goodyear his owner is new to Fitzroy House. He was ridden to the front rounding the final bend and was always doing enough from then on to get off the mark. He is in again next week and hopefully he will be able to be competitive again. Earlier on the card we had seen a fourth from LEWAMY in the same colours. He was applied with the first-time cheek pieces and had been gelded since he was last seen. He looked as though on the evidence of the run he may just want further and hopefully we can get the job done with him shortly.
In the evening STRAIT OF MAGELLAN and NIBLAWI took their chances at Kempton. STRAIT OF MAGELLAN was slow on leaving the stalls and was always going to struggle after giving the field this sort of start. He would have needed the run and is sure to come on for it. We were delighted with the effort shown by NIBLAWI on his racecourse debut. He came from off the pace to have every chance, only to be run out of it close home. This was a promising debut and he is entered again next Thursday.
Today we have SILVER MIRAGE taking her chance at Wolverhampton. She ran well last time and hopefully she can do herself justice here.
The six to follow has now finished with the winner being our head lad’s wife Hannah Lloyd-Jones taking first prize. Genni Hippisley finished runner up and Nick Bell took third place. Thank you to everyone, who took part in this years contest and we hope that you will take part again next year.
Due to holidays the website will not be updated again until the 1st December.
