Our Three Successful trainers are:

Three times champion trainer Nicky Henderson is one of the most successful trainers at The Festival™ presented by Magners. He is the trainer of Diamond River, a three-year-old horse. Nicky reports that he is

"looking like a smart horse at home. He worked on the grass gallop recently, and went extremely well, of the three-year-olds I have he is one of the most forward ones. He has had a quiet week over the Christmas/New Year period and will now start his preparation in earnest, everybody likes him a lot, and I think he is not only forward but pretty capable too"

Bath based trainer Neil Mulholland is trainer to Carolines Charm – a four-year old with a promising future. He is a progressive bay of Masterofthehorse. Neil describes him as an:

“athletic horse with the aim being to run him in a bumper before progressing over hurdles”.

Kim Bailey is a top class trainer with over 1,200 winners. He is renowned for being a fantastic host at his beautiful stables in the heart of Gloucestershire. Hes No Trouble -  a striking six-year-old out of Looks Like Trouble who is a full sister to Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Looks Like Trouble.

On Thursday 13th December, we saw Hes No Trouble and Carolines Charm make their debut for the Cheltenham & South West Syndicate at Warwick Racecourse. 

Hes No Trouble ran in a strong looking maiden hurdle before Christmas at Warwick coming seventh. A race where the subsequent winner Birchdale is highly touted by Seven Barrows, he ran a very promising race jumping fluently throughout in a handy third. Having his first run under runs he was entitled to get a little tired with both trainer, Kim Bailey, and jockey very pleased and excited for more to come moving forward.

In a competitive looking bumper field Carolines Charm made his debut for the syndicate at Warwick on 19th December finishing a very creditable eighth. The initial lack of pace in the early stages probably didn’t help him to settle as he raced on the keen side in the hands of Robert Dunne. Tiring in the final furlong he showed a lot of promise. Robert commented that he showed a ‘brilliant attitude’ and looks sure to win some nice races in the future.

We look forward to seeing our Syndicate horses race throughout the 2018 to 2020 seasons.
