Eric The Third (Ire)

2009 bay gelding by Mountain High (Ire) ex Commanche Princess (Ire) (Commanche Run (GB))

A 50% share is available in yard favourite Eric The Third, who racked up five wins last summer/autumn and, back from a good winter’s break, he is now ready to return to winning ways!

His mark rose 36lbs over fences, but I still feel there is mileage in his rating of 115 (he ran to Racing Post Ratings of 122 on his last two starts over fences in the autumn) and we will look to go over the larger obstacles later this summer. However, his hurdles mark of 98, 17lbs below his chasing mark, looks a very good one indeed and I’m confident he will be winning off it in the coming weeks.

He needed the run on his comeback at Newton Abbot in May, but he is come on plenty for that and we will look for a race for him in the coming fortnight.

He should provide us with a lot of fun and hopefully plenty of success over the summer, after which he will have a good resale value as a point to pointer/schoolmaster. A very sound individual, he should be running plenty in the months ahead and looks excellent value.

PRICE: £5,000 + VAT (for a 50% share and includes all costs to 1st July 2019)
