Stuck In The Mud
Colebrooke got stuck in the Fontwell mud yesterday, and could only finish a gallant fourth. Sent off 2-1 second favourite behind Alan Kings Listed hurdle winner Secret Edge, he never really travelled on the final circuit, jumped stickily and finished a well held 4th. There will be other days for him, and will be out again towards the end of the month/early next month. Grassfinch ran a blinder to finish 5th in what looks like a decent Novices Hurdle. She travelled and jumped really well but her lack of a recent run just found her out on the run in. Hopefully she will be fine this morning and a mares race will come her way. San Telm worked yesterday and worked very well - he is entered at Fakenham on Monday and with only 20 entered (and the good one having plenty of prior engagements) he is likely to run! Montegonian continues to impress and really is a natural over obstacles! This gentle giant is becoming a real favourite at Fences with Alice posting on her facebook page - 'slightly in love with Monty'! If you want to feel the love (Montegonian not Alice)! - 07909 518902 - shares are £500 +£20/week all inc. He will be aimed at races just after Christmas!
