There has been some positive news for our local riders and trainers at racecourses, both over jumps and on the flat, around the country.
Cadaeux Power gave Market Rasen flat race jockey Duran Fentiman a win when he powered home on his debut for Tim Easterby’s Old Malton yard over six furlongs on the all weather track at Wolverhampton.
Fentiman chased the leaders in the early stages and kept his mount on well to win by a neck. Cadaeux Power has shown ability up to 1 mile 2 furlongs previously and was having her first run for the stable over six furlongs. She showed a good attitude and reports from the yard were that she can move on from this success. Fentiman also rode to another victory on the all weather at Southwell. He still awaits his first win of 2015 on turf though.
Fentiman did not have the success in 2014 that he had enjoyed in the previous three seasons at Easterby’s yard at Malton. It was not a great year for the yard either, but Fentiman is hopeful that 2015 will produce more winners, once the turf season that started at Doncaster at the end of March gets fully underway.
Brigg trainer Nick Kent, who has jumpers and flat horses at his Newstead yard, said his stable stalwart Bowie “ran an absolute blinder” when he took him to Uttoxeter where he was beaten by just a length. Another good result for Kent came last Tuesday when Ivans Back went north to Carlisle and was second of six behind Sgt. Reckless, a decent hurdler from the Mick Channon stable. Adam Wedge was on board for Kent.
Bowie went to prestigious Cheltenham and was a creditable fourth of nine in a Conditional and Amateur Riders Handicap Hurdle. Around a Pound, another who has featured at Market Rasen, also got in the winners enclosure after a third at Uttoxeter.
