BARRYS JACK makes winning chasing debut

BARRYS JACK won the two-mile Novices' Handicap Chase at Perth in good style under Danny Cook on what was his first start over fences for us. Fresh and well following a break, he jumped and travelled enthusiastically for much of the race, getting a lead for the first three fences before taking up the running on landing over the fourth. In a little close at the fourth last, and not great at the third last, he jumped the remaining two okay and kept on well to score by three lengths...

FROZON wins at Wolverhampton

FROZON got up in the final stride to win the 1m4f Handicap at Wolverhampton last night under a good ride by Ben Robinson.

Positioned one off the rail, just in behind the leaders, Andy Barnes Kheleyf gelding travelled well throughout and settled much better today despite the pace not a strong one. As they turned for home they quickened and Frozon kept on well to get his head in front on the line...

FROZON was Brian's 1100th career winner!

BIG TIME DANCER battles gamely to get up on the line

BIG TIME DANCER put in a gutsy performance to get up in the final strides of the 1m2f Apprentice Handicap at Leicester yesterday.

Partnered by Ben Robinson, he was quite keen in the early part of the race before settling in mid division towards the inner. Making good headway up the inside four from home he battled gamely, with half the field in with a chance and strewn across the track, all the way to the line, getting up by the shortest of margins in a photo finish...

NORDIC COMBINED stays on well to win at Haydock

NORDIC COMBINED stayed on well to win the 1m6f handicap at Haydock yesterday under a good ride by Josephine Gordon.

Owned and bred by Dan Gilbert, the gelded son of Haafhd out of Chilly Filly, was stepping up to this trip for the first time and he saw it out well in testing conditions and clearly had some left in the tank as he flicked his ears on hitting the front inside the final furlong. He kept on well to the line to score by half a length from Astute Boy with our other representative in the race, Always Resolute, a further one and a quarter lengths back in third...
