HORSES IN TRAINING SALES
Fieldsman won for me first time out in a competitive 7f handicap at Newmarket in May under Silvestre de Sousa. He has had his excuses since. I’ve always thought he would be suited by the All Weather or even dirt, being by Hard Spun out of an Indian Charlie mare. The way he travels in his races would also indicate this. He'll certainly give his new connections some fun.
Illusive gave me my biggest winner to date at Glorious Goodwood and as a result is one of my favourite horses. He'll be effective from 8-14f. Illusive’s a very sound, strong horse with plenty of miles left. I believe he'll be very competitive still off his current mark and would also make a nice hurdling prospect.
Forest Lakes is a filly who has been unfortunate not to win this season. She is effective up to a mile and a quarter and seems to relish some cut in the ground, something that has been in short supply of this summer. She is on a winning mark and is a tough attractive sort.
Cacica is a filly that has come to herself this autumn, something that was borne out when she won at Wolverhampton at the beginning of the month. She is a filly that handles the All Weather and is a consistent progressive type. In time she will get further, she could easily be a dual purpose filly. I'd love to keep her in the yard!
Saxagogo is a tough durable type who has a likeable attitude, having won over 5f earlier in the season, I feel she could be equally as effective over 7f. She has been a pleasure to train and no doubt will win races for her new connections.
Chotto is a good looking sound filly, who has ultimately been disappointing on the track as her homework is very good. She will strengthen up further over the winter and should be competitive off her mark.
Sayif Magic is incredibly tough with a tremendous attitude to work. Unfortunately he didn't handle the track last time at Brighton. He’s one run away from being qualified for handicaps, which is where his future lies.
