Watch With Interest
Native Princess didn't make the trip down to Newton Abbot due to the ground not quite coming up juicy enough, but we still watched the opener with great interest. The favourite, Bantam has a rating of 130 and looked the one to beat despite a double penalty, Precision Five was making her hurdling debut, but has a rating of 80+ on the flat, and Dry Ol' Party was second behind Native Princess on her last run in Fontwell Park. Well, the Native Princess form was franked as Dry Ol' Party came away from the rest to win cosily. It will see Dry Ol' Party get a rise in the ratings, and Native Princess will no doubt be dragged up with her - but at least it proves that the Fontwell form is very strong, despite there only being 3 in it!! I have been banging on about it for ages - but there is still a share for sale in Native Princess - have a look on the For Sale Page - she is outstanding value - and a true investment, as there will be the chance to earn a significant return when her racing days are over and she has her second career as a broodmare! 07909 518902 for further details! Thanks to one of Native Princess' owners Colin Bellamy, who has proved he has too much time on his hands, by doing a league table of 85 Syndicate providers over the last 12 months. We are delighted to be currently placed a very respectable 6th in the ratings (based on racecourse performance), with some big names in behind - including Highclere Thoroughbred Racing back in 13th!! We will try to get even higher in the charts with Bold Conquest who is on course for Warwick on Tuesday, the race looks ideal, but we will keep an eye on the weather. The ground there is currently just on the soft side of good (ideal), but it would not need to dry out too much!!
