The Summer campaignÂ continues in earnest here at David Dennis Racing.
The horses are all running really well with wins from Hawdyerwheesht & Danecase within the last two weeks as well as plenty of placings.
Hawdyerwheesht broke his long spell of placed efforts with a convincing win at Worcester last Monday (6th July) when partnered by Noel Fehily to land theÂ Latimer Court Care Home Handicap HurdleÂ by a cosy 8 lengths.Â The 7yo went on to run another blinder at the same track justÂ nine days later (15th July)Â but was unlucky to revert back to bridesmaid status finishing 2nd to At First Light going down by only a length giving a hefty 13lb away to the winner.
Dylan’s Storm was another to be narrowly denied the top spot at Chepstow on Thursday (16th July) when finishing 3rd under Fergus Sweeney beaten only a short head & a neck!
Danecase has provided the yard with our secondÂ 2yo winner of the season when landing theÂ Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden StakesÂ today (17th July). The son of Showcasing was in rear early over the 6f trip but ran out a ready winner in the end under Martin Lane at a massive 20-1.
We have a busyÂ couple of daysÂ in store this weekendÂ (18th & 19th July) with four runnersÂ on Saturday and a further two on Sunday.
On Saturday, Retro Valley makes his hurdling debut at Market Rasen (1.45)Â and is accompanied to the Lincolnshire track by Marju’s Quest (2.20) & Roman Flight (2.55) whilst Dylan’s Storm heads North to Haydock for the 8.55.
Sunday sees our two runners staying local with a trip to Stratford for Footstepsintherain (3.50) & Maller Tree (4.20).
