Our day in Sweden started flatly as Bialco was not right and we had to withdraw him before his race. It was sad for all of his connections but as his owner, Morton Buscop kept saying the horse must come first. Bialco will run a few times in France and Scandinavia for the next few months before returning to Scotland for the winter ground.
At Hexham our hopes of a win for Sky Khan were dashed when he dived at the second last and crashed out. A similar fall to last time he was at Hexham we will keep him to flat tracks for the future.
Arizona Bound showed more over a shorter trip than he should be suited to, and with accurate jumping he should make a better chaser than hurdler.
Chanceiton, pictured, had us all cheering him on in the last; jumping bravely and boldly and making up ground from the third last. He just lost out in a driving finish but we were over the moon with this run. He has struck up a great bond with amateur Cameron who was having his first ride against the professionals; both Cameron and Chance show the benefit of point to pointing for a season, and should be winning again soon.
