‘Pjanoo hits the right chord’

Two winners from just the three runners last week maintains our fantastic run of form for the team at Sefton Lodge.

First up was Pjanoo at Wolverhampton on Monday making his seasonal debut under the Champ Oisin Murphy. A text book ride from an unfavourable draw saw us win comfortably confirming the high opinion we have always held of this horse since we acquired him as a yearling. Having bred and raced his Dam, Cockney Dancer, he is one of my last remaining bloodlines from Cockney Rebel. Hopefully he can move onto to some better targets as the season progresses.

Almost 48 hours later we were back at Wolverhampton witnessing Con Te Partiro complete the hat-trick under regular pilot Hollie Doyle. It’s fantastic to see this horse improve with maturity and is obviously thriving from the step up in trip. He is entered again at Chelmsford on Thursday and is set to carry a six pound winners penalty, whilst Hollie is unavailable Sean D Bowen is coming over from Ireland and will take off a useful five.

Also at Chelmsford on the same card we could see Shallow return to the venue of her two victories once again under Daragh Keenan – she has been raised no less than seven pounds for her last win. Would be great to see her also complete the hat-trick.

Earlier on in the day Run Boy Run has been entered in a valuable handicap at Newmarket under Hollie Doyle. It’s great to have a runner at The Craven meeting which always feels like the real start of the flat season.

We start this week however on Tuesday with Waiting All Night at Newcastle, he’s fallen down the ratings quite some way since his fifth place in The Coventry stakes and it would be great to see him bounce back to some form following his third place at Southwell last time out.

At the end of the week we could see the introduction of some more of our two year olds – The Man, Midnight City and Paint The Town Red all hold entries at Newbury, Bath and Nottingham, and participations will be largely ground dependant. The old Guard of Bernardo O’Reilly and Revich don’t share the same concerns and have entries at Newbury on Friday and Saturday respectively.

Elsewhere, Wonderwall who did not run at Aintree could be heading to Ayr for the Scottish National Meeting.

Fingers crossed for some more winners this week.
