26th Feb 2017 3rd 6/1 – Robinesse – Oliver Sherwood Fontwell Park

Solid run from Oliver’s horse and a TQ 1-3 in the race for us. Original quote: “Robinesse hasn’t run since November after picking up an injury to her knee, it was a nasty puncture wound which took her a long time to recover from. Any joint takes longer to heal because of the constant movement and unfortunately you can’t tell them to keep still. When we last saw Robinesse she finished a close up third at Huntingdon, she went off favourite that day but she is a proper staying filly and the conditions weren’t testing enough for her over the trip, after a slow jump at the last she was staying on all the way to the line. She is a half-sister to a very good mare I trained called Mischievous Milly, like Robinesse she was also a stayer and loved soft ground. She is a filly with potential who will sharpen-up for the run today and ideally she wants further than this but this is a good starting point for her. Robinesse is a very sweet good natured filly, she is tall and still a little bit unfurnished. The Alan King and Paul Nicholls horses look likely to fight this out. “
