News in Brief

Nicky Henderson targeting Punchestown with Shishkin

Shishkin will “sing for his supper” with trainer Nicky Henderson eyeing the Ladbrokes Punchestown Gold Cup on May 1 for him after he finished fourth at Aintree on Thursday. He said: “He lacks a gear to get out of there on this sort of track, but he’s galloped all the way to the line. The first thing I said to Nico was, ‘Surely we go to Ireland?’ and he said, ‘Surely we will’. 

Pauling yard left reeling after owners the Megsons remove their horses

Owners Andrew and Jane Megson have removed their horses from trainer Ben Pauling having decided that “a change is best” after undertaking a review of their ownership levels. Andrew Megson insisted the split was “amicable” with five horses moved to Jonjo O’Neill, five to Fergal O’Brien and one, Tellherthename, switched to Ed Dunlop for a tilt at the Flat. Megson added that eight younger horses were set to sell at the Goffs UK Spring Sale at the end of May.

Love Envoi sells for £135,000 as broodmare career beckons

Cheltenham Festival winner Love Envoi was the first horse in the ring at the Goffs Aintree Sale on Thursday and duly got the auction off to a six-figure start, being knocked down for £135,000 to Peter Molony of Rathmore Stud.

RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS

6:30 Kempton, 15th April

Ciara Pearl

Daniel & Claire Kübler

Ciara Pearl won nicely at Lingfield over ten last Monday. Comes here in a similar race under the penalty. The more galloping track will suit her better than Lingfield but that's countered by the drop back to a mile.

PRICE 11/4J
5:20 Windsor, 15th April

Phoenix Passion

Ed Walker

Phoenix Passion has a good chance today and hopefully Saffie can get him to relax. He hasn’t got a great draw but he looks great so fingers crossed for a big run.

PRICE 5/2F
3:20 Windsor, 15th April

Harper’s Ferry

Ed Walker

Harper’s Ferry is really well and I have been very happy with his work. Hopefully he has come on for that first run back at Doncaster where he made a significant step forward for his debut and if he can do the same again he should break his maiden today at Windsor.

PRICE 4/7F
7:30 Southwell, 12th April

My Margie

Richard Hughes

My Margie won nicely last time, she is going up in the weights but she is well and should go well.

PRICE 5/2
