“HIGHWAY ONE O TWO is so far unbeaten over hurdles, having won all three of his novice hurdle races. He won a Grade Two hurdle at Kempton in February and will be aimed at novice chases. We are full of hope for him. He can be strong, but he enjoys life and is a joy to have around at home.”


“LORD BADDESLEY ran in two bumpers last season and recently enjoyed his debut win for us at Fontwell in a novice hurdle. He bolted up and won nicely for an inexperien­ced horse. He’s a lovely type and will remain in novice hurdle company this season. We will keep him at the smaller racecourse­s for now, just to give him a bit more experience and he will go chasing the following season.”


“WE bred Jimmy with co-owner Les Gilbert. He is a great character but conformati­on wise, I wouldn’t spend £50 on him at Ascot sales! He was bred for Fontwell, let’s just say, and all of his races have been at the West Sussex track, bar one win at Plumpton. He enjoys Fontwell and could probably drive the lorry there himself, he’s been so many times. Everyone loves Jimmy at home.”


“HIGHWAY ONE O ONE [pictured] has had a wind operation since last season, but during his recent run at Fontwell he flipped a soft palate when running on well three out – I think a tongue tie will help him. He’s run in multiple Graded races for us and fingers crossed we can get back to some level of consistenc­y with him.”
