A special winner at Hexham last night with Andhaar rolling back the years to win the staying handicap hurdle in good style, the Bissetts have put a lot of care and attention into bringing their old favourite back to form and it was wonderful to see it all come together. In the same race Frankies Promise ran sort of ok to be 6th but remains a shadow of his former self and McGinty’s Dream stayed on to finish a close 4th.
Today at Doncaster Sales I was delighted to be able to buy Manetti, a good looking horse with an excellent pedigree he has top class Irish pointing form in the book including winning his last two, he appears very well bought and is for sale – don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any interest.
We have two horses scheduled to be sold at Goffs Doncaster Sale late tomorrow afternoon, they should both win more races and would be welcome back at Kinneston for new connections….
Gold Opera (662) has won six chases and goes to the sales on the back of what Timeform describes as a career best run when he won at Newcastle last month, a 125 rated 9yo he has the bonus of being a novice over hurdles, he can continue to progress in handicaps or would make a high class Hunter Chaser or Point-to-Pointer, goes on most ground apart from firm, easy to do in every way and very straightforward to train.
Massinis Lady (661) was 2nd in a point-to-point last spring prior to being runner up twice over hurdles to two very progressive horses, she then won a novice chase in good style at Wetherby and is a good looking 7yo with plenty more to offer either under rules or back in the pointing field. We know these horses well and reiterate that we would be pleased to continue to train them. Our other three sales entries – The Bishop, McGinty’s Dream and Top Cat Henry have been withdrawn.
