TALKTOMENOW & YOUNG LIEUTENANT
TALKTOMENOW broke his duck over hurdles winning the 3m handicap at Perth in fantastic style under young jockey Jack Tudor. They tracked the leaders, staying in about fourth throughout the contest until taking up the lead before two out. At this point he was squeezed on and came home comfortably in hands and heels fashion. He has run consistent races for us and it was just a waiting game until the time came for him to get his head in front. Hopefully he can keep to winning ways for his ever enthusiastic Fitorfat syndicate who have built up a nice string with us. Long may their victories continue!
Last week YOUNG LIEUTENANT put in a brilliant effort, winning the 2m4f novice hurdle at Sedgefield, again under Jack Tudor. He took a keen hold and then joined the leading horse of Jamie Snowden’s three out. These two then had a great battle, right up to the line with YOUNG LIEUTENANT eventually crossing the line three lengths clear. The duo were impressively 48 lengths clear of the rest of the field. YOUNG LIEUTENANT showed his ability early on when winning his bumper against some very nice horses in January 2019 and he has run very consistently since. Hopefully onwards and upwards for this nice youngster and his great owners the Drysdales.
EMITOM ran a cracking race yesterday at Uttoxeter on his first time over fences. He was foot perfect in his jumping and came back safe and sound after his debut. He lost out at the line by a neck but it was a fantastic start to the step up in his career and there is a huge amount to look forward to with him. He is entered on the 18th of October at Ffos Las and we are excited to get him back out again.
