Tuesday January 17

Following Fidux‘s excellent win at Kempton on Saturday, Martha McCandles kept up our terrific mid-season strike-rate when finally breaking the ice at Exeter today, and tomorrow Alan will be off to our local meeting at Newbury, where we have just the two runners.

Alan said:”Hidden Cargo is a progressive young horse who runs in the two-mile novice hurdle. He’s twice run well so far and is going the right way, and he probably bumped into an above-average horse in Movewiththetimes at Wincanton last time.

“We also have Perfect Harmony making his debut for us in the bumper. He fell in his one point-to-point, but he was going well at the time and we bought him at the Cheltenham sale just before Christmas. We like him and he is ready to start.”
