News in Brief
Popular Lambourn trainer Charlie Mann saddles last runner today
One of Lambourn’s most popular trainers, Charlie Mann, saddles his last runner as a trainer today when Sid Hoodie runs in the 2.32 at Stratford – we wish him all the best.
Amateur jockey Lorna Brooke dies after Taunton fall
Lorna Brooke has died following a heavy fall at Taunton this month, the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF) has announced in a statement. The amateur jockey was treated on track and airlifted to Southmead Hospital in Bristol on April 8 after falling from Orchestrated, trained by her mother Lady Susan Brooke, in the 2m7f handicap chase.
Impressive Mutasaabeq a possible for 2,000 Guineas
A standout on pedigree and looks, the son of 1,000 Guineas winner Ghanaati took his record to two from two over course and distance, although he does not hold a Guineas entry at this stage. “He loved the ground today and I think he’s a very talented horse,” said Lambourn trainer Charlie Hills, who did not entirely rule out supplementing for the Classic.
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Peerless still isn’t quite there in his coat but is working very well and is fresh and ready for a run so I thought we would take our chance. I think he has got an excellent chance off the back of his improved form at the end of last year, he’s a stronger horse this year so I’m very hopeful of him getting off to the perfect start.
Jersey BeanOliver Sherwood
Jersey Bean is a very genuine and consistent performer who is generally a good jumper. He will improve from his last race at Newbury, which was his first after a winter break, as he takes more work than you’d expect for a slight horse. He loves top of the ground and he is a proper stayer, hopefully today he can continue in the same form he’s been in this season.
Hooper has been running really consistently of late and he will really like the quicker ground. He is in good form and has been working and schooling well.
Sir SholokhovHarry Whittington
His win on chasing debut at Sedgefield last month was a very pleasing performance and one that suggests there is plenty more to come.
