30 August

Posted on August 30, 2019

A good day at Bangor, with 2 horses coming back to form. SHADY GLEN had rather lost his way earlier in the summer, but he followed up a solid run at Market Rasen last time out with another nice performance in the 3m handicap chase at Bangor, travelling and jumping really well. Given his quirks, it probably wasn’t ideal for him to find himself in front 3 out when the 2 long time leaders dropped tamely away, but he stayed on into the places.
Much better from JESSICA RABBIT too, after a poor handicap debut last time out. Max had positioned perfectly throughout the race, and got her jumping beautifully. He went to win his race from 3 out, but she just got outstayed by a couple of better handicapped rivals. I’d always thought that 20f+ would be her trip, but I think that probably slightly shorter might suit while she is still growing up, so we’ll look for something around 18f next time out.
