Kelpies Myth took us a step closer to the Novice Championship final at Sandown with a win at Carlisle this afternoon. Running from the front with his ears pricked and looking to enjoy every minute, he stayed on nicely to win by a couple of lengths. He will need to go up a few pounds to get into the final held on the last day of the season, but as he seems to be improving he should be capable of running a big race if he gets to the final.
Saint Freule also looked to enjoy himself and though still keen through a combination of tension and enthusiasm, he was settled enough for Blair to be able to ride a nice race on him. His second place was another small step forward and he will now likely go to Perth.
Out other two Present Flight and Dr Hooves both ran well until a few furlongs out when they decelerated. We will freshen them both up before their next races.
