9 March

Posted on March 9, 2019

AMI DESBOIS ran a super race at Sandown last time out, and conditions looked ideal for another big run today. However, he just didn’t quite sparkle this time – the winner made it an end to end gallop, and he was always just struggling under top weight. He tried his heart out, as he always does, but he was just no match today. No disgrace to be beaten in very soft ground giving another horse 21lbs though, and he’ll live to fight another day.

BOLDMERE ran a really solid race in the EBF NH Novices final. His finishing position – 9th – doesn’t really tell the whole story, as he was quickened out of it on the turn for home and looked to be going nowhere before Kielan pulled him out wide up the home straight and he stayed on really bravely to get within 9 lengths of the winner. This final is always competitive, and there are going to plenty of nice horses come out of it for the future.
