13th May 2018 1st 2/1 – The Fresh Prince – Oliver Sherwood Plumpton

Jumped really well to land this for Oliver Sherwood. Original quote: "The Fresh Prince didn’t really appear to get home over three miles last time out at Southwell, he won a point to point before I bought him and we always thought he would get the trip so there is still hope on that score. He shows a lot of speed at home but on a racecourse he has been largely disappointing, he is by Robin Des Pres and a lot of them are bridle horses, they travel well into a race and then find very little when asked. I think Prince is better competing in lower grade races off a big weight than running in better class races with a low weight, he’s a giant among mice. He's dropped back down to a good mark again and he will appreciate a small field, I think he prefers better ground but if they do get rain at Plumpton he should handle conditions too. Prince is an extremely good looking horse with a lot of presence, he works and schools exceptionally well at home, hence the frustration that he doesn’t transfer it to a racecourse. A trappy race with just 4 runners and we all look to have a chance - should go well though and looking for a decent run."
