We’ll wait to see what the handicapper does before making any plans for him, but he is a lightly-raced and progressive six year old and hopefully further success awaits in the coming months.
Bennachie was only just denied in his hat-trick bid, but it was another fine effort from the son of Milan, as his two wins had both come earlier in the month, so he has had a busy time of it. He’ll have a week or so off and we’ll look for something for him next month, as he needs good ground.
Danmurphysdoor shaped with promise on his hurdling debut over a trip that probably just stretched him, but I was delighted with the run of Fields Of Glory, who looked the winner the whole way up the straight in the concluding bumper, only to get nabbed late on! A three-parts brother to the top-class Captain Conan, it was a promising performance on his first start since last May, especially as we are unlikely to see the best of him until he is sent chasing next term.
