30th Nov 2017 1st 8/1 – Nathans Pride – Tim Vaughan Musselburgh

The long trip north paid off for Tim’s horse. Original quote: “Nathans Pride – A horse we’ve always liked that returns to fences here after having just 1 run before over the bigger obstacles. Heading up north as likes the quicker ground and will be a lot fitter for his recent run over hurdles after a lay-off. Probably needs to brush-up his jumping based on his only previous run over fences but only 6 runners in the race now helps. Looks a decent race though and despite 12-1 to carry is looking handicapped to win races again. The Whittington horse feared, but hopeful of a much better run than last time in this slightly easier grade. If his jumping holds out then a small each-way.”
