GILGAMESH MAKES IT 3 WINNERS FROM 10 RUNNERS IN 2017
Gilgamesh is a horse I've always adored, I'm delighted he continued his progress at Wolverhampton yesterday. A giant of a horse he was always going to improve on anything he achieved as a two year old.
Likewise, a straight galloping track rather than the sweeping turns of Wolverhampton would be more to his suiting. Whilst he has hung left in his last two starts I'm not overly concerned, feeling that he is still a little green and just doing enough, something that is evident in his home work. He will now be trained for a turf campaign. I have no doubt there is plenty more to come.
My team have begun well in 2017. We're striking at 30% having had 3 winners from 10 runners. I've also been very pleased with a few of the horses that have not won yet this year. I have no doubt their time will come as the year progresses. Even more exciting are the 2 year olds, as we've been sent a much better type. Many of them will not be ready until mid -summer, but I'm getting the indication that they will be very much worth waiting for. Thank you as always to all my staff who have worked tirelessly over the winter.
Everyone at Saffron House has a huge amount to look forward to.
