22 November

Posted on November 22, 2018

One of the yard favourites, KAYF BLANCO, made his seasonal return at Market Rasen today. While the Racing Post focuses on him being a 10 race maiden over fences, that’s not really fair on him – he’s now placed in 8 of those 10 starts, including in some top class handicaps. The step up in trip today, to 2m 6f, was a bit of a step into the unknown, but we finished last year thinking he’d now get further, and so it proved – he travelled into the race really nicely and finished strongly, running on (predictably !) into a place.

Great ride by Tom Humphries too, deputising for Kielan while he recovers from injury. Get well soon, from all of us at the yard.

I said it last year, and was wrong, but I’ll say it again now about this season – I believe there is a really big handicap win in him once conditions get a bit softer.
