Following a further two placings in bumpers, Brunel Woods made a very pleasing start to his hurdling career at Worcester in October 2017 finishing 2nd on his debut over obstacles. He then made a return to the track just over 12 months later at Huntingdon in December 2018 where he ran a little too keenly but settled much better next time out at Leicester later that same month. Since then, Brunel Woods showed plenty of promise when finishing 4th on two recent starts at Hereford in March & Bangor in April & we now look forward to watching him progress throughout the season.
Brunel Woods is available for sale or syndication in shares ranging from 10% - 80%.
Cyclop, an ex French hurdler who joined us in Spring 2014 has proved to be a very consistent horse, hardly ever being out of the placings and has four wins & a whole string of places to his name.
Although only small, Cyclop has the heart of a lion & is regularly seen running in long distance handicap chases & regional nationals. Cyclop won his first hurdle race in France back in May 2014 before gaining his first British victory at Huntingdon on Boxing day later that same year.
Since then, Cyclop has taken to chasing like a duck to water winning twice over the larger obstacles with his latest victory coming in the Clugston Lincolnshire National Handicap Chase at Market Rasen on Boxing Day 2017 under Trevor Whelan. We were thrilled to see Cyclop land one of these long distance handicaps and he has well & truly proven himself to be an out & out stayer.
Cyclop endured a somewhat frustrating time of it last season with just two runs coming at Wincanton & Chepstow in March & April 2019 but we look forward to watching him continue to contest 3m+ handicap chases later on this season following a summer break.
Danecase first joined us in mid April 2015 and now has four wins under his belt in addition to a string of consistent performances & places.
Danecase gained his first victory on just his third run after two previous placed efforts in July 2015 when winning at Nottingham landing theIrish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden Stakes under Martin Lane.
Since then Danecase has landed a further four victories including at Lingfield in October 2017 when landing the Arena Racing Company Handicap (Div I) & more recently when winning the Red Deer Handicap (Div II) at Leicester in good style in October 2018. Wins over both 6f & 7f and on both turf & all-weather surfaces prove that Danecase is a most versatile & consistent individual & there should be plenty of opportunities for this game horse again throughout 2019 following pleasing his first two runs back this season both at Newbury in June & again in July
Deauville Dancer joined the yard in October 2015 having already shown plenty of form on the flat with former trainer Sir Mark Prescott. This good looking son of Tamayuz is a fine stamp of a horse and was a previous winner of three races on the flat over 1m6f & 2 miles.
Since making the switch to the NH sphere & a win over hurdles in June 2016, Deauville Dancer has since excelled over fences winning five times throughout the 2017/18 season including his first victory at Huntingdon in May 2017 when landing the 188Bet Handicap Chase, you can watch that race HERE.
Since that first win, Deauville Dancer made it three on the bounce at Doncaster in December 2017 when victorious in the Betfred Supports Jack Berry House Chase & took his chance in the Topham Chase at Aintree where he jumped the Grand National fences brilliantly to finish 12th before going onto finish a nice 4th at Sandown next time out in the bet365 Josh Gifford Novices' Handicap Chase.
Donatello Mail arrived in autumn 2018 from Ireland having won a point to point on his latest start in early October 2018.
This strapping gelding by Zambezi Sun is an exciting addition to the yard & looks every inch a future chaser given his size & scope over an obstacle.
Donatello Mail made his yard debut in a bumper at Uttoxeter in December 2018 before running over hurdles next time out at Huntingdon in February 2019 where he ran too keenly for his own good for much of the way. Settling in his races will now be the main aim & we look forward to seeing him progress this season following a summer break.
This good looking gelding arrived with us to begin his training in July 2017 having been broken in & ridden away in Ireland earlier that Spring.
An athletic type by Getaway, Dontcounturchikens made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Ludlow in April 2018 finishing a very promising 3rd following which he was put away again for the summer to allow him to strengthen & mature.
Dontcounturchikens made his 2018/19 seasonal return at Chepstow in November 2018 finishing 11th in a large field & was a very promising 2nd next time out at Doncaster, again in a bumper.
Dontcounturchikens has since had three starts over hurdles running with plenty of promise on each occasion to finish 3rd twice at Newton Abbot in April & at Warwick in May 2019 followed by a 2nd placing on his most recent start at Uttoxeter in June. With these experiences now under his belt we now look forward to watching him progress throughout the year.
