22nd Feb 2019 2nd 25/1 – Makety – Oliver Sherwood Exeter

Top effort behind a useful sort. Original quote: "Makety ran better than her form suggests at Hereford on her first outing for us after winning a point to point bumper over 2m the previous spring. Because she had won a bumper over 2m I presumed she would want further than 2m over hurdles, and I hold my hands up ...I was wrong. Makety travelled really nicely last time out and she just didn’t get home, I broke my own rule that day because even if I think a horse wants further I usually begin them at 2 or 2m1f first time out, often they are fresh and I’d rather they were staying on at the finish than going backwards. Goes without saying it will be a shock if the Henderson horse isn't taking this but the places after that one are all up for grabs.
