Ten To Follow Update (28.02.2018)
As February draws to a close we headed back to Kempton for the Adonis Juvenile Hurdle, whilst Fontwell hosted their biggest fixture of the year for The National Spirit Hurdle. Despite there being six opportunities for players to score, nobody had any winners, so there is no change in the standings.
Paul Nicholls started off the weekend with a facile victory for Cyrname in the Pendil Novice Chase at Kempton. Cyrname went off in front, going clear at the 10th. Despite a bad blunder four from home, Sean Bowen did a great recovery, and steered the six-year-old home for an eleven length victory.
Next up it was the turn of the Alan King to secure an easy win. The hot favorite Redicean made a mockery of the field, settling in rear and always travelling well throughout, he took the lead two out and sprinted clear from the last.
The most impressive performance of the day came from Ben Pauling's Global Citizen. Always up with the furious pace, he went clear after three out and was 12 lengths ahead at the last. He cruised up the run-in and was eased towards the finish.
Finally at Kempton, Master Dee proved to have too much for Ballykan and Theatre Territory continued the good form of Fergal O'Brien. On Sunday, Fontwell took the spotlight as Old Guard bounced right back to form for the Paul Nicholls team.
Be sure to check back next Wednesday for the scores.
