9th Sept Result 1st 15/8 – Vinnie The Hoddie – Oliver Sherwood Uttoxeter

Gallopped them into the ground. Original quote: "Vinnie The Hoddie ran a blinder here last week in a competitive race where four horses had a chance winning going to the last fence, Vinnie had been a bit keen early on in the race that day so unfortunately he had no more to offer on the run in. The most pleasing thing about that run was his jumping, he’s got tons of scope at home but he can lose concentration in a race and as result he lost his confidence last winter. I am concerned that this race may come a bit soon for him but there is nothing else for him for a few weeks and long gaps between his races doesn’t really suit him either as he gets too fresh and keen again ....then you’re back to square one. Vinnie is a talented horse but he is a work in progress, he just needs a few confidence boosting clear rounds and to learn to relax in his races so I can eventually step him up in trip because all he does is gallop. Vinnie is a gent to deal with but he is cold backed to get on and he can be strong on the gallops. He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke."
