8 November

Posted on November 8, 2018

FOLLOW THE SWALLOW went back to Market Rasen today, where he had run so well earlier in the summer, for the 2m 6f handicap chase. Lily brought him into the race beautifully – he got to the front at the last without really knowing he’d been in a race – and it looked as though today would be his day … but then an 80-1, 55-start maiden of Michael Chapman’s came from out of the clouds to do him on the line ! To add insult to injury, Lily got days for the whip as well. I really felt for her.

BENTONS LAD also had a nice start for us. He’s had his wind done since joining us, and today’s run would have given him lots of confidence, staying on and finishing his race for the first time in a long while. I’d like to think he’ll win for us before the winter really kicks in.
