13th Feb 2017 1st 9/4 – Minella On Line – Oliver Sherwood – Plumpton

Made up for falling last time out – nice call from Oliver! Original quote: “Minella On Line runs in a novice handicap chase over 3m 1f. Minella won on his first start for me here at Plumpton, that was over 2m 3f and I don’t see why he would not get the extra six furlongs today. Minella is a horse with a ton of ability but is annoyingly flippant with his jumping. We have worked hard on his schooling, which I might add has always been good at home, to try and get him to “cop on”. Minella has talent, he often worked on the gallops with Many Clouds, he is a big good looking horse that is easy to deal with at home. Royal Salute the clear danger, but if his jumping holds up then should be bang there. “
