Folie A Deux 3rd at Newcastle

Folie A Deux put in an improved performance in the 3 mile 0-100 handicap hurdle at Newcastle on thursday to finish a close 3rd with myself on board claiming 7lbs against the profesionals.

The Racing Post said “Folie A Deaux, successful over fences at Taunton in January from a 5lb higher mark, changed stables after that. He bounced back after a modest effort on his return to hurdling but returned to form here.”

Folie is part owned by Tommy Sharratt and myself with shares still available in him. He loves the better ground and should hopefully give us plenty of fun over the late spring and summer months.

 

Blewit 4th on Debut

Blewit was 4th on his hurdling and yard debut yesterday at Carlisle. In what was quite testing ground conditions he jumped well showing a good level of ability and a great attitude against far more experienced rivals. It was a very pleasing first run and there should be better to come in the future.

KYKATE RUNS IN CHELTENHAM CHARITY RACE TODAY

KYKATE runs at Cheltenham today in the Charity race in aid of cancer research. Stuart Parr rides her. Stuart is a fire fighter from Manchester and has put in a massive amount of effort to raise over £5000 in order to ride in the race. He has also put in hours of work here on the yard riding out and helping on the ground. It has been a pleasure having him around and we wish him all the best for today. Good luck Stuart and enjoy your day.

Folie A Deux Declared at Sedgefield

Folie A Deux has been declared to run in the 3 mile 3 furlong 0-110 handicap hurdle at Sedgefield on Sunday, Jake Greenall takes the ride claiming 5 lbs. The going is currently good and although the distance is a step into the unknown for the horse having never run over such a long trip, he is running off a handicap mark of 100 which is the same mark that he last won off over hurdles. He seems to have come out of his last run at Ludlow well and we are hoping for a good showing.
