He's My Boy says George

Posted on: 8th May 2016

The two new comers INDULGED and SLEEPLESSINSEATTLE both ran well in the mile and a quarter maiden at Nottingham on Friday. They ran complete opposite races. SLEEPLESSINSEATTLE was right up with the leaders throughout the race until she faded in the last furlong and INDULGED took time to get going and ran on from behind to finish fourth. We were very happy with both of them and both will come on a ton for the race.

ZEST was a little disappointing on what she has shown at home. The ground may have been a bit on the lively side for her. She is a filly that should get a mile and a quarter but at the moment she is doing too much too early to stay that distance.

MISSED CALL ran an excellent first race of the season to finish third in the Listed Carey Group Buckhounds Stakes. She looked magnificent in the paddock and it looks as if she may have improved again even at the age of six. Last year she improved as the season went on. If she does the same this year she will be a fun horse for her owner Malcolm Denmark this year.

HE'S MY BOY is one of Pegasus's lovable characters who has been going nicely at home this season. We were disappointed with him at Kempton last time out but he made amends yesterday at Nottingham when running over eight and a half furlongs and winning the Apprentice race. In the last ten days George Wood has had four winners, two seconds and a third. Two of his winners have been for Paul Ryan who owns KING OF NAPLES and HE'S MY BOY.

The yard does not have any entries on Monday or Tuesday but should have a few runners at York. REPLENISH is in on Wednesday, SPEEDY BOARDING and HORS DE COMBAT on thursday. I know James would like to run all three. ESTEEMABLE will run at Lingfield on Wednesay and HIGHER POWER at Newmarket on Thursday or Friday.

Tom came back having had three months work experience in America ten days ago. He has learnt a lot and we are pleased to have him home again.
