13 April

Posted on April 13, 2019

Frustrating day at Ayr, with neither running going as expected. SKIPTHECUDDLES never went a yard in the Scottish National – whether it was the ground or the size of the field, who knows, but his jumping lacked any sort of fluency, and when one fell in front of him and hampered him he used that as the perfect excuse to say ‘enough’.
ZULU DAWN was also expected to be in the places in the bumper, but he faded out of it in the home straight to finish only fifth. I think in his case it was probably just the end of a hard season for a young horse – he had a hard race at Newbury and although he’d been giving every sign of having got over it, it may have just taken its toll. Summer holiday time for him.
