8 December

Posted on December 8, 2011

The long-awaited return of TICKATACK today, in what I’m afraid was a really decent 2m 4f Novice hurdle. You know that the opposition could take a bit of beating when the Racing Post tells you that one of them was bought for £240,000 after winning his maiden point to point earlier in the year …

After pulling so hard last time when we tried to hold him up, the plan this time was to bounce him out and see whether he’d settle in front. A bit keen at first, he did drop his head though and settle well enough. Although he was tapped for toe when those around started to pick up the pace turning for home, he stayed on well, and I can’t be disappointed with his run. He’s certainly improving all the time for his racing, and I’d hope to see another step in the right direction next time out.
