29 November

Posted on November 29, 2018

One of those days today at Taunton that you’d rather just forget about.
MY CHARITY was making his debut over fences, and got as far as the first fence before landing a bit too steeply, pitching forward and unseating Kielan. He’s been a cracking jumper at home – a bit over-confident if anything – and for his first chase to come to a premature end like that was frustrating.
FOLLOW THE SWALLOW’s run was even more heart-breaking. After being pipped on the line first time out, Lilly gave him a super ride to take it up 2 out, and he was pulling further and further clear as they came to the last, still on the bridle. Jumped it 10 lengths clear and … knuckled on landing. He deserved to win that today, and instead of being 2 for 2 in his last starts, he’s 0 for 2.
