HCE Snippets - Two-Year-Old Talk

James Bethell
How Sweet It Is ran a cracking race on Friday [York], we chucked her in the deep end, but she ran a great race and has come out of it fine.

Roger Charlton
Rather frustratingly Supreme Quest was beaten 3 lengths by two fillies that on the form book we should have beaten, but it does appear that her trip is 5 furlongs and that having traveled so well she just ran out of gas.

Richard Hannon
 The boss said:"Besides Dubawi Gold, Avon River, Esentepe, Cristal Gem and King of Jazz were all beaten less than a length, so it was a relief when Trumpet Major broke the spell when winning at Goodwood.

 "Trumpet Major is owned by John Manley, who also has Dick Turpin, and he looks to have another real nice colt in this fellow, who only cost 20,000 Euros.

"We were pleased with Trumpet Major on his debut at Newbury, where he was just mugged close home, and he won easily at Goodwood.

"However, we are not committed to running him at Royal Ascot. I'll talk to John and we will make a plan, but there is always the Newmarket July meeting, and he could take the Dick Turpin route and go to Goodwood for the Richmond Stakes."

"Lord Of The Shadows takes on four other winners in the opener, but he was impressive when he won there last month and we like him, while Puttingonthestyle ran well over the course a fortnight ago and should be suited by dropping back in trip in the second race."

Our 2nd winner came from Evervescent at Haydock yesterday.  This was only his 2nd run so great to see him get one on the board so early and a huge well done to his owners the Ever Equine Syndicate.  They are new owners to us this season so congratulations to them, let's hope its the first of many !!
