Our summer team have started the season in great form and I was delighted to record a double at Ludlow yesterday, courtesy of Alltimegold and Jefferson Davis.
The former has really taken time to find his form, but he has got the hang of things recently and, following a wide-margin win at Ffos Las last week, he followed up in great style yesterday under Alan Johns, travelling well in behind the leaders before coming through to hit the front two out, galloping on for a ready six-length success. He looks to have further improvement in him and we could yet go back over hurdles with him to exploit his lower mark in that sphere.
Jefferson Davis is another to have taken time to click into gear, but a drop in the weights, return to chasing and a power-packed finish from Richard Johnson saw him get his head in front for us, storming home after the last, having looked a very unlikely winner for most of the home straight. He shouldn’t go up too much for the win and I am hopeful that he can go very close next time for owner Paul Syson.
