WINNER !! 29th & 30th January 2023- Stable News

Fantastic Win yesterday at Fontwell !! Churchill’s Boy wins at Fontwell Park!

A brilliant effort from horse and jockey James Davies to get up to win in a photo finish!

Huge Congratulations to owner Holly, Lynne and to Team Gifford Well done to Izzy Mills who rides him at home & led him up today. Also to Dave Phelan who found him and does the pre training!! A real team effort. Really impressed with his attitude especially over a trip which was shorter than ideal and a tight track !! An exciting prospect.

First Defence who ran in the bumper really hated the sticky ground and needs further , so the plan to now go hurdling with him, step him up in trip, find better ground. Arthur as we call him will want 3 miles as he progresses. Built for stamina !! He has a good attitude and galloped all the way to the line. He will also appreciate better ground.

Today we have two runners at Plumpton. First of all we "Yesnosorry" AKA "Glenda" running in the 2:40 Plumpton 30 JAN 2023 2m (1m7f195y) IEP Financial Novices' Hurdle (GBB Race) (Class 4) (4yo+) who will be ridden by James Davies and belongs to the "Willow and Bridle Partnership". Glenda will be led up by Hannah West and Kirsty Huff our head girl is in charge today. Glenda is still learning the game, this trip might be a bit short for her, but we want a good clear round of jumping and to see her galloping all the way to the line. We are still learning about her, but think she will appreciate the better ground. We think the world of Glenda , a future chaser who will also in time hopefully get further.

Then last but not least we have "Cobbs Corner" who runs in the 4:24 Plumpton 30 JAN 2023 2m (1m7f195y) Strong Flavours Catering Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) (4yo+ 0-100). Bobby as we call him will be ridden by James Davies, he is a good ground horse so at this time of year this is probably the best we can expect. Fingers crossed he runs and jumps well. Good Luck Martin and Joanne and Team Gifford. Hannah West who ride and looks after Bobby at home will be leading up today.
