It is still very very chilly down in Findon with a bitter wind chill. We are Keeping all the horses ticking over and everybody warm. We have two runners today back to Kempton Park for the All Weather Jumpers Bumper meeting. At this time of year when all the meetings are abandoned these meetings do serve a purpose especially for good ground horses, and to keep them on the go. They can throw up some very funny results and debates, because essentially they should be for "Jumpers" and are often won by some very smart Ex flat horses. Anyway thats a whole nother story !
We have "The Mighty Don" for "The Golden Rose Partnership "running in the 3:40 Kempton POLYTRACK 11 FEB 2021RTV 2m2f Download The Vbet App "Jumpers' Bumper" National Hunt Flat Race (AW) (Class 4) (4yo+) and twelve runners go to post. James Davies on board, lets see what Donald thinks of this. It will be good for him to have a racecourse gallop, hopefully it will be run at a good strong pace as he stays all day.
Then we have "Belargus" for "J.P.McManus who will be ridden by Niall Hoolihan and runs in the 4:15 Kempton POLYTRACK 11 FEB 2021RTV 2m Vbet "Jumpers' Bumper" National Hunt Flat Race (Div I) (AW) (Class 4) (4yo+). This is over 2 miles and again looks like a competitive race. We shall see what Belargus makes of it. We have been desperate to run him so above all it will be a good racecourse gallop and an away day for him, so he will be spot on for his next run.
Good Luck to all connections and Team Gifford. Andrew Veale " Travelling Head Lad" and Izz
y Mills will be leading up and taking them to the races.
