The Jumps Team
Audora, trained by Martin Hill:- She had two promising runs in Bumpers which were followed by several niggling issues whilst schooling, but now Martin finally has Audora ready to go racing again. Possible race plans: Saturday 7th April 2m4f Maiden Hurdle at Uttoxeter; Monday 9th April 2m Mares Nov Hurdle at Ludlow; Thursday 12th April 2m3f Novice Hurdle at Taunton.
Demographic, trained by Emma Lavelle:- He wants good ground, hence we have yet to see him out much this season, he ran a blinder on his return to the racecourse in February travelling and jumping fluently until tiring but not a bad effort after 300 plus days off the track. Emma will now give him some extensive schooling over the larger obstacles and look for a suitable chasing option as his next target, he is ready to run but we are just waiting for better ground.
Mythical Legend, trained by Emma Lavelle:- After a year out she made a really promising return to the racecourse finishing 3rd in soft ground in a hot mare’s contest at Fontwell. She has been slightly frustrating to get back on track since her disappointing second effort at Huntingdon when she struck in to herself then various knocks and bumps have held her back. Finally Emma now has her in a fit and healthy condition and back in full training. We should see her back on the racecourse after Easter.
Born Legend, trained by Oliver Sherwood:- He has had a wind op now and will be back out again after Easter. Oliver definitely has his hands full with The Legend. But he has won once and will do so again.
Festival Dawn, trained by Philip Hobbs:- She made her racing under rules debut last month in a Mare’s Novice Hurdle at Taunton where she finished a very impressive 2nd. She will have learnt a lot from the experience, Philip and the team were absolutely delighted with her performance as she had been working well at home prior to the run, we can now look forward to her next race! Possible race plans: Tuesday 3rd April 2m3f Maiden Hurdle at Wincanton; Sat 7th April 2m4f Maiden Hurdle at Uttoxeter.
Hey Listen, trained by Lucinda Russell:- Our Scottish representative came to the Club late on as a replacement for Superior Command who had injured himself. He is still very much a ‘work in progress’ but Lucinda and Scu remain very positive. He needs good ground or better so we will not see him racing for at least two more weeks.
Salto Chisco, trained by Harry Whittington:- Salty is back in training having had a proper holiday, he is cantering away on Harry’s gallops and with luck we will be back racing in mid-April with him. A four time winner last season he is a lovely genuine horse. Possible race plans: Thursday 26th April 2m Handicap Hurdle at Kempton; Monday 28th May 2m Handicap Chase at Huntingdon.
The Flat Team - So Far....
Cardaw Lily, trained by Ruth Carr:- Has settled in very quickly into her new surroundings in Yorkshire with Ruth Carr who is based just 30 minutes outside York. Ruth is a hugely innovative and successful trainer and I am sure Cardaw Lily will show us the benefits of the new daily routine when she makes her seasonal debut in May.
Halcyon, trained by Ed Vaughan:- We are really excited to announce Halcyon's return to the British Racing Club roster of horses. We sent her back to Ed Vaughan in Newmarket quite early on this year, as she had missed so much time at the end of last season, she is a big filly who will be campaigned over 7f and beyond, more than likely around a mile in time, and hopefully she will make her racecourse debut in early May.
ex GALILIEO by Queenscliff, trained by Tom Dascombe:- Has settled in at Toms readily, and is in full training. We are very excited to have such a well-bred prospect in the Club; she will need plenty of time and probably 7f to start with.
ex Garswood filly by Verge, trained by Harry Dunlop:- Latest recruit to the Club, unlike our Galileo filly this lady is all speed, she is quite forward in her work and Harry Dunlop is really pleased with her. Possible May debut.
