Surely Alan created a touch of history yesterday?
Plenty can be done in half an hour, but to complete a full house in less than 30 minutes – three horses winning at different tracks over fences, hurdles and on the all-weather – must be some sort of record.
Dingo Dollar got the ball rolling in the novice chase at Doncaster – he jumped super and is in the NH Chase at Cheltenham but one of the four owners needs to be convinced it is the right route to stay for a six-year-old – the versatile Lexington Law followed up on the tapeta at Newcastle – that is two from three on the all-weather since joining Alan – and Azzerti, who seems to have finally got over that unhappy experience on Grand Military day at Sandown last year when the loud music of the band almost blew his mind, topped up the celebrations at Huntingdon.
We are in action today at Kempton and Bangor, and Alan, who will be at the Sunbury course, said:”Chosen Path took time to get over his tumble at Exeter in November but is now back in form at home and ready to resume in the novice hurdle, in which we also run Chato and Stockburn, while we have two nice bumper horses going there in Mr Pumblechook and Lord Walsingham, who are both being considered for the big sales bumper at Newbury next month.
The three to go to Bangor – Good Man Pat, Potterman and Harambe – also look to have solid chances, so here’s hoping it’s another good day for Barbury.
