We were delighted with both performances at Sedgefield yesterday, in what were testing conditions, and it was good to be back among the winners with three victories in two days. Let’s hope it can continue!

INSTANT REPLAY made a winning debut over fences taking the 2m3½f Novices' Handicap Chase sponsored by Brian Ellison Racing. Once he got over the first two fences his jumping was awesome and, a big horse with a long stride, it wasn’t long before Henry (Brooke) let him bowl along in front....

WINDSOR AVENUE made an impressive winning debut for us taking the closing 2m1f bumper by nine lengths. Partnered by Brian Hughes, he travelled really well through out, tracking the leader on the inside, before taking it up over two furlongs from home...

CRACKDELOUST back to winning form

CRACKDELOUST bounced back to form with success in the 2m3½f Handicap Hurdle at Catterick yesterday. Brian Hughes partnered the six-year-old for owner Phil Martin and, settled in mid-division towards the outside, he travelled strongly and jumped well for much of the race. Gradually creeping closer from four out, he moved smoothly into the lead approaching the second last. Jumping the final flight well, he kept on to the line to win by two and a quarter lengths...

Back-to-back wins for SERENITY NOW

SERENITY NOW was given a good ride by Abbie McCain to take the 1m6f Amateur Riders' Handicap at Southwell yesterday.

Settled in mid-division, he travelled strongly for much of the race. Switched wide to make progress round the outside of the field from halfway, he was third turning in. Staying on well in the last quarter mile, he took it up with a furlong to run and kept on well to the line to post a two-and-a-half length victory. A winner at the track seven days, Serenity Now, who is now 10 years old...

SERENITY NOW wins at Southwell

SERENITY NOW enjoyed the change back to the flat yesterday with victory in the Betway Stayer’s Handicap at Southwell.

Drawn on the outside of the eight-runner field, Stevie Donohoe settled him towards the rear on the outside for much of the race before moving up to sit in behind the leaders three from home. Taking it up with a quarter mile left to run he kept on well to the line to score by one and three-quarter lengths...

BORDEAUX BILL wins at Wetherby

BORDEAUX BILL appreciated the step up in trip taking the three-mile Novices’ Chase at Wetherby in good style under Danny Cook yesterday.

With two non-runners, just three went to post and Bordeaux Bill got a nice lead off Sharp Response for much of the race. Traveling strongly, he jumped into the lead four from home and soon put a couple of lengths between himself and the one time leader. Jumping the three remaining fences well he coasted home by nine lengths...

A Boxing Day winner with FAIR LOCH

We were delighted to see FAIR LOCH back in the winner’s enclosure following success in the 2m1f Handicap Chase at Market Rasen yesterday.

Settled out the back by Connor O’Farrell, Julie Martin’s grey travelled strongly throughout and jumped equally well. Moving up on the outside into second with four left to jump, he took up the running approaching three out. He got in a little close to that but jumped the final two okay and kept on to the line to score by two-and-a-quarter lengths.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Brian, Claire, Jessica and all the team here at Spring Cottage Stables would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

The highlight of our 2017 Flat season was without doubt Dream Walker leading home Baraweez and Be Kool in the ‘Ahonoora’ Handicap at the Galway Festival. It was a truly awesome day and the fourth time in succession Brian has trained the winner of the Irish Premier Handicap...

Definitly Red - Gold Cup & Grand National being considered

Following an impressive victory in the Grade 2, 188bet.co.uk Many Clouds Chase at Aintree last weekend Brian said yesterday Definitly Red will be entered up in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup in March and the Random Health Grand National in April.

Plans are still fluid as to where he will go next although the Listed, Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster on January 27th, 2018 is a possible stepping-stone to Cheltenham or Aintree.
