27/02/2021 A good day under both codes today. At Newcastle Brian Ellison's Sam's Adventure followed up on his Tommy Whittle win in December when taking the 43,792 Eider Handicap Chase nicely , Micky Hammond took the Conditional Jock's handicap hurdle later on the card. It was a Yorkshire 1-2 in the Hever Sprint Stakes L at Lingfield with John Quinn's Lord Riddiford hanging on by a neck from Edward Bethell's (getting his first bit of black type) Moss Gill, David Griffiths' Ornate was fourth.
20/02/2021 Mark Johnston's Mildenberger might have finished 'only' sixth in the 1m Red Sea Turf Handicap at Riyadh, but still picked up 36,496 for his efforts. At Haydock Brian Ellison's Tupelo Mississippi was third in the Albert Bartlett Prestige Novices' Hurdle Gd2 and there was a winner for Philip Kirby. Winners at Newcastle were provided by William Bethell, Richard Fahey, Mark Johnston and Peter Niven.
18/02/2021 Nigel Tinkler's Acklam Express put up the performance of his (short) career to date when second, at 20-1, in the Meydan Sprint G2 at, erm, Meydan. Mark Johnston had a winner at Chelmsford.
13/02/2021 Overnight Royal Performer, bred at Scampston Hall Stud by Lady Ledgard, took his first black type race, at the first attempt and the age of eight when landing the Herbie Dyke Stakes G1 at Te Rapa (New Zealand). Karen Tutty, Karl Burke and John Quinn (Lord Riddiford in the 11,827 Betway Handicap) all had winners on Wolverhampton's evening card.
11/02/2021 David O'Meara's Lord Glitters was a decent third, only a nose out of second, in the Al Rashidiya G2 at Meydan today. Slightly closer to home at Newcastle Edward Bethell registered his first win since taking over at Tupgill from his father James when Mudawwan struck in the apprentice handicap and there were also winners for Philip Kirby, Richard Fahey and Bryan Smart.
06/02/2021 Wetherby is cancelled , Karl Burke's largely unheralded Exalted Angel landed the Kachy Stakes L at Lingfield today at 20-1. Pat Buckley, formerly first jockey to Captain Neville Crump in Middleham died this week at the age of 77. He won the Grand National in '63 (albeit not for Crump) as well as numerous other top races including the Whitbread Gold Cup and Scottish Grand National. After his Yorkshire based career in the saddle he was instrumental in setting up racing industries in Oman and Abu Dhabi, and was then heavily involved in setting up the Dubai World Cup.
23/01/2021 Ruth Jefferson's Waiting Patiently was arguably a little disappointing when 'only' third in the Clarence House Chase Gd1 at Ascot, but still a Grade One placing isn't to be sneezed at and it bodes well for the future. Patrick Haslam had a winner over fences at Haydock at and then doubled up on the all-weather flat at Newcastle where Phil Kirby, Alan Brown and Mark Johnston had winners and Antony Brittain landed a double.
21/01/2021 The moneyspinner that is Lord Glitters registered his first win since June 2019 when landing the Singspiel Stakes G2 for David O'Meara at Meydan today, coming home clear by a comfortable three lengths. Richard Fahey had a win at Lingfield and then promptly doubled up on Newcastle's evening card when Julie Camacho had a double and there were also winners for Roger Fell and Kevin Ryan.
16/01/2021 Jedd O'Keeffe's Miss Lamb (owned and bred by landlady Sally Hall) is a decent second in the Alan Swinbank Mares' Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race L at Market Rasen this afternoon. Mark Johnston took the last on Kempton's evening card.
