Hidden History & David’s Well 🏆🏆🏆

Evening all. I’m sorry for the lack of updates over the past week with winners and runners etc but we’ve had a very good past week with two winners, Hidden History at Lingfield last Thursday and David’s Well at Plumpton yesterday.

Hidden History ran at Lingfield last Thursday in the Support The Injured Jockeys Fund Maiden Hurdle over 2m3½f on heavy and won nicely in the end by 1¼ lengths. This lad was a point winner who shaped with a good deal of promise on his hurdles debut over 2m at Newbury and was one of several to race keenly off a steady pace but it didn't stop him seeing his race out well, holding off his market rival late. He is clearly a promising young horse and we'll learn more about him under a penalty and his future. A great ride by Rex Dingle and a huge congratulations to his owners The Noel Fehily Partnership.

David’s Well was our second winner of the week when winning the Brough Scott Backs Jamie's Farm Maiden Hurdle over 2m yesterday at Plumpton. This lad had shaped with clear promise in two races over hurdles at Newbury and this race was much easier. He won as he liked and, whether or not he defies a penalty, he looks a useful prospect with chasing in mind, having placed in a 3m point. A great ride by Rex Dingle and a big congratulations to his owners The Morestead Select Syndicate.

Onto Saturday, where we sent Unanswered Prayers and Lord Baddesley to Kempton in the Coral Trophy Handicap Chase (Premier Handicap) over 3m. They both finished midfield in the end, Unanswered Prayers finished 1/2 a length in front of Lord Baddesley.

Unanswered Prayers was having his first run since a wind op and disputed the lead most of the way, just weakening on him turn but stayed on from the last, running a respectable race. He will definitely come on for that.

Lord Baddesley was caught too far back taking on 3 miles for the first time and the late headway he made suggests he will get the trip in time.

Chesh was having his first run in a bumper at Kempton and finished midfield in the end having found it all a bit tough first time out. He’s a big horse who has needed a lot of time but would have a learnt a lot from this experience and will definitely come on for the run.

Gerico Ville ran well yesterday at Plumpton being slightly unlucky to finish second in the end in the Dine&Stay @ The Jolly Sportsman Amateur Jockeys' Handicap Chase (For The Gay Kindersley Trophy) over 3m1½f. This lad hadn’t been seen for 99 days and needed plenty of shoving along to get back in with a chance (Gina Andrews felt her mount hung left handed throughout) but he kept rallying and almost certainly would have won (after the leader fell at the last) but for being hampered by a loose horse. It was his best effort as a chaser.

We have one runner declared tomorrow at Wincanton and a few entered on Friday at Newbury so I will update on those tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy the update 💪🏼🐎 Well done Team Gordon 🐎🐎🐎
