Kelso Places


Lots of places at Kelso and some nice runs for the future.

Vengeur De Guye is most consistent and while he was a bit low at his fences to start, pictured, he then regained his accuracy. A drift to the right at the last slowed his progress but he stayed on to be second. He deserves to win again.

Bescot Springs continued his revival with a third place. He is much better in a lower grade but is consistent and always gives his owners a run for their money.

Tantamount looked to be running a big race until getting a little weary in the closing stages. This should put him spot on for the summer.

Out two novices showed promise. Ceegem is still very green, but the penny dropped in the home straight and he galloped all the way to the line. Poor Topham Bay was running a big race til a mistake at the fourth last shook her. She then had a nasty fall at the last but luckily was up quickly. She was checked at the Edinburgh vets school for a knee wound but received the all clear and will be home in the morning.

    I am very pleased Topham Bay is none the worst after her tumble at the last. I just hope her confidence is not too badly affected by this. She did well at Hexham previously.

    Five years ago, I waxed lyrical here about the Jimmy Moffat trained Morning Glory and lo and behold he pops up and beats Vengeur De Guye. Take it from me Lucinda, that is a pretty good yardstick and in my view, your little hero will be going one better sooner rather than later.

    Good luck with your runners at Carlisle. It would be nice to have a winner or two on the eve of the Grand National Meeting.

    Go get em Erin!!
