Raydiance bounced back to form with a convincing win at Redcar last weekend, watched by his patient and enthusiastic owners. He travelled well on ground a little quicker than ideal and never looked in serious threat of defeat. It was a drop in grade for the listed winner and his class told. He’ll reappear quickly at Newcastle this weekend and he’s in good order with himself. He’s remained sound for a considerable amount of time now and he’ll be competitive when he gets his conditions.
Dream House came of age at Redcar when winning comfortably in the maiden handicap over 5f on Friday. Given a good ride by David Allen, the son of Kummel Excess won a shade cosily on the good ground over the minimum trip.
There looks to be more to come from the strong gelding, who is now beginning to know his job.
It was a good day for the dam Kummel Excess, as she also had Diligent Deb running in the Albany at Royal Ascot. The family are now four wins from four runners and there looks to be more winners to come from the damline.
Well done to his patient owners, they should have some fun now.
Thanks to Ascot racecourse and Chris for giving us a wonderful week at Royal Ascot.
We had 3 runners at the Royal meeting, and while it wasn’t to be this year on the track, off the track the Owners had a great experience and were well looked after once again.
There will be better days ahead for Concello, Show Me Show Me and Corinthia Knight I’m sure, and Ontoawinner are already plotting next year’s potential runners.
Thanks to Ollie Lane and Mike Hurley for their kind words and Steve for his Royal Ascot blog.

Saturday saw the start of the new flat season at Doncaster. We had 2 entries on the day, one in the Lincoln Handicap and one in the Brocklesby. First up was Raydiance who ran in the Lincoln, we were delighted with the run as he ideally needs softer ground, so he ran a very creditable race and travelled supremely well until 2 furlongs out where race fitness and the ground just found him out. Clifford Lee who rode him let him come home in his own time and was happy with the horse on the day. His owners were delighted with his efforts and we are confident there is a big win this year for him.
Next up we had Show Me Show Me running in the Brocklesby which is the first 2-year-old race of 2019. Show Me Show Me looked superb in the preliminary’s and behaved impeccably considering this was his first time in front of a large crowd. He travelled to the start well. Once the stalls opened, he broke fantastically well Paul Hanagan (jockey) had him in great position travelling supremely well throughout the race. Paul took up the running at the furlong pole and went a couple of lengths clear. In the last 100 yards he was joined by the second favourite Strong Power. Show Me Show Me showed a tremendous attitude and battled all the way to line winning by a cosy ¾ length. Paul Hanagan was very happy with the horse’s performance and thinks we have a lovey horse for the future. We are absolutely delighted for his owners and with this effort as this is the first time, we have had a Brocklesby runner and our first 2-year-old runner of 2019 which bodes well.
