With the NH Season getting into action at Chepstow this weekend, we’ve already seen the benefit of taking notes from the Cheltenham Festival!
Notebook from Cheltenham 2020:
Boodles Hurdle, Thyme White
Not really a case of an eye-catcher in terms of his future over hurdles, but one that will be of interest when sent over fences, perhaps next season. He travelled through this race extremely well and perhaps to well, jumping his hurdles beautifully and without effort. Harry Cobden hadn’t moved a muscle when they jumped the second last and he looked like he’d be a major player, but when they quickened for home he didn’t have the required pace to stay competitive and was then looked after having jumped the final flight. He’s a really big scopey imposing 4yo who towered over the majority of his rivals. He’ll benefit hugely from time, allowing his to strengthen up and fill into his frame and is sure to prove considerably better than his in time, over hurdles and when he’s sent over fences.
Brief write up for today:
2.10 Thyme White, was a notebook from The Cheltenham Festival and we’re really looking forward to seeing him jump a fence one day. He’s certainly better than his run at the Festival.
Result: WON 6/1
