12 September

Posted on September 12, 2018

Delighted that FLEETING VISIT got his head in front to win the Maiden Hurdle at Uttoxeter today. He has been such an honest horse since he joined us from the flat in the spring, placed on 3 of his last 4 starts and falling at the last on the other occasion when looking sure to win or be second, that he deserved to win. Sam T-D gave him a lovely ride while Kielan remains out injured, getting there coming to the last and then using his flat speed to keep on to the line. I think the form of that race could work out OK – the second looks a really nice horse with good bumper form, the third had good bumper form last year and the fifth has been running consistently well over hurdles this summer. Hopefully that will give FV the confidence to go on and win again – and since his last win was as a 2 year old, fingers crossed we won’t have to wait another 3 years !!
