The Last Week of March

« Back To News


The week started off well with Timeforwest and Box Office winning at Market Rasen on Monday 27th.   With the ground at last drying up, we have a lot of horses who have been waiting for better conditions for most of the winter. Hopefully this will trigger an upturn in fortunes for Jackdaws Castle over the coming weeks.  

The Jockey Club South West Syndicate have had a great week, with Timeforwest following up at Taunton on Thursday 30th – just three days after winning at Market Rasen.  We used Jack Savage’s claim to cancel out her penalty and as this was a Conditional Jockey’s Race, she will not have a further penalty when she turns out again at Kempton on Tuesday.  A large number of the syndicate turned out in the Taunton sunshine to cheer her on, and were really well looked after by the Taunton Management team after the race which was a nice touch and well received.    

More of That and Go Conquer both travelled to Lambourne this morning to school over the Grand National Fences – I was delighted with the way they jumped and I’m looking forward to running them both next week.

We have a relatively quiet weekend with the flat season starting at Doncaster.   We have two runners at Stratford on Saturday – Hedley Lamarr in the 3.20 and Strongly Suggested in the 5.05.   On Sunday 2nd April, Champagne At Tara runs in the valuable Novice Handicap Chase at Ascot and Westendorf runs in the competitive Conditional Jockey’s race with Killian Moore on board.

Next week will be a very busy week with plenty of runners early on in the week, followed by the National Meeting starting at Aintree on Thursday.
