A gutsy performance by Tardree saw this former Irish Point to Point Winner getting off the mark in England by a head in a close contest. The third winner in a wekk for the stable !
TARDREE proved game when headed down the home straight and the rising finish played into his hands. He bumped into one over C&D on his rules debut last month and, not surprisingly being an Irish point winner, ought to enjoy going up in trip once hurdling.
Promising 5yo Against All Odds made a gutsy winning hurdles debut at Catterick Park this afternoon under a determined ride from Ben Jones. The yard continues to be in top form !
A fair novice hurdle.
AGAINST ALL ODDS showed promising ability in her two bumper starts at Perth earlier in the year and was popular in the betting markets here on her hurdling debut. The 5yo showed a smashing attitude in this first career success and has the potential to continue progressing over hurdles and fences.
Gold Fields got off the mark over fences at Fakenham today with a fine display of jumping to win impressively by 18 lengths. Still only a 6 year old he is now fulfilling the promise he has shown at home and hopefully there will be more to come..
GOLD FIELDS bounded clear from the second-last and recorded a first win under rules at the 14th time of asking. Rated as high as 88 over hurdles in the past, but without a place in any of 13 starts beforehand, this sudden improvement in form is difficult to fathom. He jumped well and travelled strongly throughout though, and will likely be in for a hefty hike in the weights once the handicapper has his say.
