In a week that saw mutterings of Willie Mullins dominance being bad for National Hunt racing, Alan King dominated yesterday having a superb 5 timer with the four Mullins hotpots making a fruitless trip to English shores. It goes to show that a week can be a long time in racing, it only adds to the excitement of what is sure to be a cracking Cheltenham festival for all racing enthusiasts. The Gold Cup is a wide open affair and Alan King must be very tempted to let Smad Place take his chance in the feature, his jumping was superb from the front yesterday and he was never going to be passed on a day that the trip took some getting. We may have seen another superstar hurdler in the form of Yanworth who hacked up, beating the very promising Neil Mulholland trained Shantou Village by 7 lengths easing down, a very impressive performance from the Alan King trained 6 year old. Bring on the festival
OnToAWinner had a quiet week on the racing front this week. Carbutts Ridge had a couple of entries during the week but Karl decided to give him well deserved mini break to freshen him up. He has targeted a couple of races for him at Southwell in a few weeks’ time.
Our new Showcasing Filly (named Kick King Katie) has been entered this week in the £300,000 Tattersalls Sales race in Ireland. We have limited shares remaining in this cracking filly by a sire that brought us our biggest successes to date in Toocoolforschool and Quiet Reflection.
