Review Of The Past Weeks Runners
by Ryan Tongue
20th April 2021

Last Monday saw the racecourse debut of Graceful Moment and she put in a very credible effort when finishing third at Redcar, despite running very green.

She was markedly slow out of the stalls, which put her on the back foot straight away and was then notably green throughout the first half of the race. Although, the penny did not drop until she had reached the last couple of furlongs, she stayed on well and was certainly the eyecatcher to take from the race.

Tuesday saw the first of our string of flat horses take to the track, when Costa Adeje ran in a hot looking Novice at Newmarket.

Although, he got tired up the hill in the last half furlong and faded out of the places, it was a lovely run that was full of promise for the future. He was immaculately behaved throughout, stood in the stalls like an old pro and he will have learnt more for his day at the races, than he has done in the past 6 months. We cannot wait to see him progress throughout the season.

Goldencard was our second runner on Tuesday when he reverted to hurdles for the first time in over a year, at Southwell.

Like the rest of us, he has lost half a stride of pace now that he is a little older and got outpaced when running down the back. Nevertheless, he was the only horse to be staying on strongly at the end of the race and a step up in trip is on the cards.

We saw the return of Captain Tom Cat at Cheltenham on Wednesday and he ran a fantastic race to finish third on his first run back after a winter break.

He jumped and travelled brilliantly throughout the race and showed all his old zest, which was great to see. Cillin Leonard felt as though he had a blow and got a bit tired after the last, which was completely understandable for his first run in over 4 months.

We expect him to improve for fences and he will now school over the larger obstacles, with the idea of starting his novice chase campaign within the next month.

Finally, it was fantastic to see Ripper Roo get his head in front in decisive fashion at Market Rasen.

He has been the model of consistency throughout the winter months and had not been out of the frame in his previous 4 starts, thus this victory was thoroughly deserved. Due to the small runner field, he had to make the running to ensure that the race did not turn into a sprint, thankfully, this did not make any difference and he eventually ran out a cosy winner by 4 and a half lengths.

He will now go for a well-deserved summer holiday before coming back in next for season for a novice chase campaign.
