September continues to go well for Barbury
Tronada seemed to turn the tide for the Barbury horses when she won at Bath at the start of the month, and the upsurge in form has continued through September, with three more winners this week.
Lord Neidin and newcomer Letmelivemylife were both victorious on the polytrack at Chelmsford on Thursday, with Trueshan topping up the celebrations at Salisbury on Friday.
Trueshan, who has been a superstar, winning six of his 10 races, could well have a crack at the Group 2 Long Distance Cup at Ascot on Champions Day (October 17), having got back on track when justifying favouritism in the Persian Punch Stakes at Salisbury. He did not run badly in the Ebor, but arguably was just a shade below his best, and he is well worth an upgrade in the £300,000 staying feature.
Lord Neidin has clearly benefited from a wind operation. Five of his six races have been on the all-weather, but the surface suits him well and this first success was well-deserved.
Letmelivemylife, an Oasis Dream colt, was well backed for his debut, and he defied the outside draw when delivering in style, having travelled strongly all the way. It looked a very encouraging start.
