Following five wins in points for Amber Mathias in April/May, Midnight Folie‘s rich vein of form shows no sign of stopping, as she followed two ready successes over fences with a wide-margin win over hurdles at Cartmel yesterday.
Ridden once again by Ben Jones, who has developed a formidable partnership with the mare, the pair were prominent throughout and, hitting the front at halfway, she drew further and further clear, winning very easily off her mark of 85.
Her new mark has now kicked in, so we’ll give her a quiet week and look for something in a fortnight or so. Though things will be tougher off her new mark, she could well have more to offer and I am already looking forward to seeing her back on the racecourse next time! Congratulations to her owners Trevor Nicholas and Malcolm Price.
