We just had the one runner today, the admirable Castlemorris King in the feature race at Newton Abbot, a class 2 0-150 hurdle. We fancied him going into it and all the conditions were in his favour, he had nearly top weight in an ultra competitive race. Jumping off midfield he got shuffled back and got no sort of run through but he still finished a very pleasing 5th, beaten only 5 lengths. He came back very happy and has had a very easy race. His next start will be on the level and we cannot wait!! He really is a star and will enjoy a nice day in the field tomorrow. Good day had by all, albeit a tad unlucky, looking forward to next time.
I am pleased to report Morris is feeling very well and fresh after his run yesterday as you can see from his picture!
