Vertigo Wins At Ayr

A smooth win for Vertigo in the maiden hurdle at Ayr this afternoon. This was a pleasing performance from the bumper winning five year old and his tenacity and swift jumping will stand him in good stead in the future. He may go for a handicap at Hexham in a few weeks. He is pictured over the last with Alex.

Well Above Par posted a really good effort when second in the two mile maiden hurdle; the trip is short of his ideal distance and he will continue to improve. There are three 12.5% shares left in Well Above Par, please contact me soon to secure them.

Deepsand ran a good race to be fourth, although he could not quicken in the home straight. Poor Mumgos Debut made a shuddering mistake at the first in the home straight, unseating Grant,; a shame as he had jumped well until that point.

At Sandown Vengeur De Guye got Brahms & Liszt's rugby weekend off to a good start when second in the two mile chase. He is looking much improved and has a nice chase win in him in the next few months. 


Three more tomorrow, starting with another ex irish pointer Chanceiton. He looks a tough young horse and we will see how he runs tomorrow before making more plans for him.

Imjoeking's best form is on good to soft ground but he has had this race in his sights for a few weeks. He is ridden by Blair who rides him each day at home. 

Finally, we run Alizee De Janeiro in the mares handicap hurdle. This is a little further than her winning trip last time, and she is another who prefers good to soft going but she is in great form at home and has every chance.

    It's great to see how Alexander has come on over the last year. He has obviously learnt lots from Scu and Derek. He gave Vertigo a lovely calm assured ride. ( Not so easy for a youngster who had Brian Hughes in his wing mirrors coming into the home straight )
