HIGH NOON 12/1 WINNER!!!!!!!
In order to win a race it makes sense to run a horse at it's best trip, on a track it likes, and if you are well in at the weights it obviously makes a big difference. High Noon had all these things in his favour, plus the added bonus of the good ground he thrives on. That is where a bit of luck comes in handy, as there was plenty of rain around, but it thankfully didn't come quick enough to scupper the chances of our winner
High Noon was always handy, and travelled well throughout in the hands of Connor O'Farrell. He took up the running two out, and held on gamely to the line, to win by two and a quarter lengths.
Who's The Guv'Nor earlier on, on the card took his form to a new level when finishing a head second in the novice hurdle, with six and a half lengths back to the third horse, he will continue to progress. The only sad note was that our other runner Wishful Thinking could never get involved again, and was pulled up before two out, having become detached. He will now be retired and found a loving home, like all our ex racehorses.
We were also at Doncaster sales today, and the great news is we made four purchases. I will write about them all in detail in the coming days, and weeks.
