Paul Cole: Stable Update

Raring to go: Rimth heads for Darling

It’s a new year and a new season is fast approaching. The horses are working up to routine canters, and the 2yos are upsides. We have high hopes for our stable, and we have news on a few early starters.

Rimth will head for the Fred Darling stakes, with a view for better things if she makes the grade. She had a massively pleasing first season, culminating in a 4 1/2l defeat to the massively promising Hooray. That was in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes, which makes her one of the best 3yo fillies around. We think she can improve even further now she has lengthened over the winter.

Mata Keranjang has a torrid time last term trying to break his maiden, but he finally got there after more than enough attempts. He’s our Lincoln hope, and may head to the trial at Wolverhampton. We’re still in two minds about it due to the 5lb penalty if he wins, so we may head straight to the big one at Doncaster. He’s really come on over the winter, and we hope that he’ll chalk up a few more wins this term. No Hubris may head for the same races, although he is also entered in a Listed on the same day as the Wolverhampton Lincoln trial.

Argocat ended last year with a win, and we think he could be special. He’s entered in the French Derby and a few trials prior to that. He has grown and has thickened well, so we’re hoping he’ll start this season as he finished the last. We may have a 2yo in the Brockelsbury, but it is undecided so far.

Finally, we have a few more shares for sale in the RacingclubUK syndicate horses. These are available for all horses apart from the Holy Roman Emperor filly. Visit for more details. There are some scorching prospects on offer.
