imageA talented novice over fences in 2013/14, Bucking The Trend was unable to be competitive in two starts on his return from a long absence at the turn of the year, but he bounced back to form in no uncertain style with a fine front-running display at Market Rasen yesterday under Alan Johns.

Though it was only a modest contest for the grade, his jumping was a pleasure to watch and hopefully, with his confidence at a high, he can follow up this win next time, with an option at Chepstow next week.

Congratulations to his owners The Marinades!
