Donatello Mail arrived in autumn 2018 from Ireland having won a point to point on his latest start in early October.
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 next season.
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.
A fine stamp of a horse 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. We now look forward to watching him progress throughout the season.
Since then, Final Nudge continued to run well to finish 5th in the Betfred Mobile Masters Handicap Chase at Newbury in February & 9th in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Amateur Riders' Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival followed by lining up in the Randox Health Grand National where he was jumping the iconic fences very well before getting crowded & falling at the canal turn.
Final Nudge returned to the track back in the Coral Welsh Grand National in December 2018 where he ran well for a long way before eventually pulling up & found the ground a little too quick for his liking next time out at Wincanton in February 2019.
We look forward to seeing him continue to contest the big long distance handicap chases again this year.
Flying Verse was in good form last summer & he is now back in full training & made his seasonal reappearance running well to finish 5th at Exeter in April 2019. Being a good jumper & proving he stays at least 3m, we are now looking forward to seeing him enjoy the top of the ground again throughout the spring & summer months.
