Big D had a great ride at Lingfield last Friday, finishing third on WESTER LODGE. The horse was a bit keen in the early stages but then was allowed to bowl along in front. The first 2 horses both produced a better turn of foot but WESTER LODGE stayed on well to give his young jockey a good day out. Big D had to return swiftly to the classroom for a double maths session later in the afternoon!. The horse will stayed further and it was a good run. His next run will be on February 14th at Wolverhampton when older brother Harry will be taking over in the saddle. This will be Harry's first ride, no doubt he will be keen to do even better than his younger brother!
SUNNY SPRITE reverts to the flat at Southwell tomorrow. He loved jumping but just didn't stay 2 miles over hurdles. He is by a sprinter and he showed some form over 6 furlongs as a 2 year old so hopefully he can re find that form tomorrow. He is running in a claiming race over 6 furlongs.
