It was good to see Acey Milan break his duck over hurdles at Plumpton on Wednesday as racing resumed after a frustrating six day shutdown. Victory didn’t look that likely on the final bend where he was headed after making much of the running in the opening novice hurdle. Two miles round a sharp track was never going to be ideal for a horse that stays so well but Acey Milan showed a very wi...

The victory of Duhallow Gesture in the Mares Novice Hurdle at Taunton on Monday under Aidan Coleman was a big boost for the yard after a tricky couple of months while the horses have been on the easy list. It feels great to be back on track. We can hopefully start to make up for lost time with plenty of interesting runners in the next week or so now that the cold snap is over. Duhallow Gesture i...

Mistress Massini doubled her score for January with a fluent victory in a staying novice handicap Chase at Catterick on Thursday. As she escaped a penalty for her comfortable success at Ludlow seven days earlier she was again able to run off a lowly handicap mark of 89. We sent Mistress Massini to Catterick on Wednesday and she enjoyed a canter round the course in the morning before putting her ...

The success of Mistress Massini in a staying Handicap Chase at Ludlow on Thursday was a nice little bonus at a time when our core team are still on the easy list after suffering from a mild virus. Having been busy in point-to-points for my sister Teresa Clark until June she came into training at the start of December and has been the only one in full work over the past month. Mistress Massini had ...

A double at Ffos Las on Sunday was further confirmation that our team is in top form with underfoot conditions finally in our favour. We’ve had to be patient waiting for the rain to come and we are kicking on now with Le Coeur Net landing the Class 4 two mile chase by eighteen lengths before Jepeck completed the double on his debut for us by making just about all the running in the three mi...

It was good to see Sojourn repay the patience of his owners with a ready success in the bumper at Aintree on Saturday on his second start. A lovely, big, scopey type who will make a chaser, he has needed time to mature and strengthen since he first came into training. He showed bags of promise on his debut at Newbury almost exactly a year ago when he finished fourth of sixteen and he should have ...

The application of blinkers first time helped Ennistown gain his first success for us in a valuable staying handicap hurdle at Plumpton on Sunday. He was a decent horse on the flat for Godolphin and later did well over hurdles for John Ferguson. But his form then tailed off before he was sent to us by his owners a year ago to see if a change of scenery could revive his fortunes. The challenge wa...

G For Ginger and Rex Dingle shared their second success in a week with a fluent Handicap Hurdle Victory at Worcester on Tuessday evening. The story was much the same as when they won tidily at Uttoxeter on July 10th. Rex set a rattling good gallop on G For Ginger, who was always in command, jumped soundly and kept well on in the closing stages for a clear cut 15 length triumph. I couldn't be hap...

G For Ginger bounced back to form with a decisive front running performance at Uttoxeter on Tuesday evening in the colours of Frosties Friends. For her jockey Rex Dingle it was a red letter day as he was winning on his first ride as a conditional. It was a mature performance for a youngster who did exactly as we discussed on G For Ginger, kept things simple and reaped the reward with an eight le...
