We’re having a lovely late Summer/early Autumn here at Tyre Hill Stables and it’s great that all of the horses are enjoying some late sunshine in the paddocks every day. However the National Hunt season proper is looming around the corner now and we’re sure it won’t be too long until trainers up and down the country are praying for some rain to ease the jumping ground.
The horses have been ticking away nicely with some nice winners and places last month where Summer jumpers have been able to continue their campaign due to the good weather and quicker ground and the Winter horses are just beginning to make an appearance.
Marju’s Quest is one of the Summer horses who has been making hay whilst the sun shines with a win at Worcester two runs ago and a further two 3rd placings more recently. Along with Marju’s Quest, Hawdyerwheesht is another who has been running consistently all Summer finishing in the first three in all of his last five starts since winning at Worcester back in July and has really been giving his syndicate members some fun.
My Mo has also hit form recently winning his last two starts just eight days apart at Chelmsford & Wolverhampton and holds a further entry at Brighton on Tuesday 6th October.
Another flat performer who has shown improved form since beginning to settle is Kenstone who frustratingly went down by only a nose last time out at Chelmsford and is sure to get his head in front very soon.
The Big Dipper was a winner at Southwell in late September, claiming victory on his handicapping debut under Jamie Bargary providing a great day for his enthusiastic owners The Lucky Seven. This was their first winner since bringing The Big Dipper to David Dennis Racing and has certainly given them a taste for plenty more success.
The National Hunt horses that are set for an Autumn/Winter campaign have all been working and schooling well and we are looking forward to some of them beginning to make their racecourse appearances in the coming weeks.
