IT WAS great to start a new week with Chemical Warfare winning at Worcester on Monday. He looked a little unlucky not to win on his first chase start for the yard at Worcester in early June when falling on the last and had a confidence-boosting win back over hurdles at Market Rasen after this. 

That is now two wins from four starts since joining us and I am sure there is more to come.  He will probably continue to mix chasing and hurdling and there is plenty more fun to be had.

Chemical Warfare was our ninth winner of the season, following Only Fools who was winner number eight at Newton Abbot last Friday.  There were plenty of our Racing Club members in attendance on the day and special thanks to Newton Abbot with being so helpful in ensuring everyone who wanted to go to watch could. 

She is another who will continue to run through the summer and give all our members plenty of fun.  It is only £150 to join our Racing Club for the year, great value with lots of action and enjoyment.  Get in touch with the office for more details about joining – email: [email protected].

Nibras Gold ran another solid race to be second again over fences at Stratford.  That is now two second places from two starts over the larger obstacles.  Back in the Bay ran a promising race in her first start in a bumper to be fourth at Worcester.  She will be suited by hurdles and a longer trip in due course.  The same applies to Granny Smith who ran in the same race. 

There is not much jumps racing this week and our next runner over obstacles will not be until Sunday at the earliest, with Hammer Dan holding an entry at Stratford on Sunday.  He was a winner at Newton Abbot but was then balloted out of two races at Worcester on Monday.  

We do have two possible flat runners this week with Revel Angel holding an entry at Chepstow on Friday and Oceanline at Ascot on Saturday.  The intention is to run both at this stage so keep checking the Daily News on the website for the latest information on the stable runners. 

We could also have a runner in France at the weekend.  We have Heure De Gloire entered at Dieppe on Saturday.  She was a winner in France before coming to France and this looks a suitable race to try her back in her native land.  The plan is to run with Nathan Howie riding and so it will be interesting to see how she gets on.  

 I mentioned last week a horse I had for sale – an unbroken three year old by Cracksman who is the full brother to our very own Manuelito and some other top jumpers.  I am pleased to say he now has a new owner but I do have another horse available and he could be a cracking dual-purpose horse for someone!

Tuxedo Junction is fit and ready to run.  He jumps very well and can run over hurdles or on the flat straight away.  He is a winner on the flat over 1m2f and has been placed six times as well from 11 starts.  I bought him from Newmarket sales and I gave him a holiday before bringing him back into training.  He goes very nicely at home and I am looking forward to getting him on the track very shortly.  Please see the link below for all the details or get in touch with the office for more information.
