He ran well and was beaten just 6 lengths over 1 mile 6 furlongs at Catterick on his first start for me and has subsequently been placed on the flat and over hurdles, improving with each run over hurdles. He is sure to win before long.

PROFILE

“Benny” is a big, good looking 3 year old son of Jet Away, a Juddmonte stallion who was a multiple winner over 1 mile – 1 mile 2 furlongs. Benny’s dam was a multiple winner on the flat (both on turf and on the all-weather) and also won over hurdles and she is a half-sister to Pragmatist, a triple 6-7 furlong winner at 3 and 4 years old and to Shy who won several times over 1 mile 4 furlongs on the turf. Benny has been lightly backed and then turned away to continue growing. We haven’t done much with him yet but would like to think that he will see the racecourse next Spring. In view of his breeding and his conformation, we are very much looking forward to seeing him on the track.

PROFILE

“Brecon” is a very exciting member of the team. He is only six but has won two bumpers (one under a penalty) and has had an excellent novice hurdling season, winning twice and being placed in others, including in the valuable Dovecote at Kempton. He was second, only beaten four lengths by Brewinupastorm at Huntingdon when conceding six pounds to the winner and beat several other top novice hurdlers of the season. He finished his season at Aintree but didn’t achieve a fairy-tale ending as the unexpectedly rain-soaked ground didn’t suit him at all. As he was bought as a chaser in the making, his very successful novice hurdle campaign was a real bonus. He is now taking a break but will return in the autumn, possibly running in one or more handicap hurdles before switching to novice chasing. We are very much looking forward to running him again.

He won several races, including the class 1 Cumberland Lodge Stakes over 1 1/2 miles at Ascot, and he has produced a good crop of winners already. TJ has now had two runs for experience, a bumper and a maiden hurdle. He is showing a good attitude and should win races once handicapping.

The horse has been placed in all five of his latest runs, over trips from 1 mile up to just over 1 mile 2 furlongs. He has shown a great attitude in his races and has settled into our yard brilliantly. He will continue to run in flat races over the summer and may well then go novice hurdling.

We bought him privately on a recent expedition to Ireland. He has been well backed and schooled and has had a short holiday as we didn’t want to risk him on Summer ground. He is very much the type to win a bumper before progressing as a hurdler and ultimately going chasing. He is precocious and tough and a very exciting top class prospect.

He is a very classy horse who moves very well. He has been totally reinvigorated by a season’s pointing in 2018-19, running 9 times, winning 4 and placed 2nd or 3rd on three other occasions. He has been a brilliant school master for our son, William, who has been having his first season pointing. We may well decide to run Local under rules again in the autumn.

An eight year old, brown mare by Robin des Pres out of a Presenting mare, “Bridget” is another who has been transformed by a wind operation last year and then a confidence boosting switch to pointing this last season. In her five runs in 2019, she has gone from strength to strength, being placed three times before winning by a distance in her last race at the end of April. She has learnt to settle and could well go back under rules in mares’ chases before long. She is well-bred and her half sister is rated 127 over hurdles and 139 over chase fences and ran in the Kim Muir Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 2019. Postbridge is very tough with a lovely competitive attitude and would give a lot of fun either point to pointing or back under rules. FOR SALE – £3,000 + vat; 25% and 50% shares available.

His dam won a bumper and over hurdles and another of her progeny, Ballymoy, won four races in a row for Nigel Twiston-Davies in 2018, including the valuable Novice Championship Final at Sandown. He has subsequently won two more races including a class 1 hurdle at Ascot in 2019 and is now rated 152. Rum’s dam is half-sister to Invictus who was a prolific winner for Alan King and had a handicap of 150 over fences. Rum is a natural jumper and has the scope to jump both hurdles and fences. He will start off novice hurdling and is a lovely horse that we have always regarded very highly and he should have a very bright future.  25% share still available. VAT recoverable.

We believe that he will benefit from more individual attention in a smaller yard and seems to be loving his holiday out in the field with Brecon, The Happy Chappy and Irish Sovereign. He will continue his holiday until later in the Summer and will then return to work with a view to running in the Autumn.

The Happy Chappy is a lovely, big athletic gelding with enormous scope. He won both his maiden and restricted point to points in the spring of 2016 before moving to Paul Nicholls. On his first run for us he was third by 2 lengths to Step Back who is now rated 144 over fences. Chappy then won a staying hurdle race at Huntingdon in May 2017. After a summer break, he was a very good second in a beginners’ chase at Worcester on 17 October and then won with a superb round of jumping in a 3 mile 2 furlong novice chase at Sedgefield on 2 November and followed that up with a win in the feature race, a 3 mile 1 1/2 furlong race at Ludlow on 16 November. As the Racing Post commented, “he is an exciting young chaser”. After a disappointing time in 2018, he was second in the Cambridgeshire National at Huntingdon in March 2019 and followed that up with another placed result at Fontwell. We are looking forward to seeing him run again early this autumn.
