He’s No Trouble wins his Novice Chase at Huntington

Blog 27th November 2019 Cheltenham

It has been a story of two extremes for Hes No Trouble's on-track performances this month. His debut over fences at Chepstow on 6th November was disappointing for us all, particularly for poor David Bass who tasted the Welsh dirt- and only two fences in! Horse and jockey both came back unscathed and Kim was quick to 'return to the drawing board' and come up with a Plan B which came in the shape of a handicap chase at Huntingdon on Saturday 23rd November.

'Trouble', as he’s affectionately known by members, went off as the on-course second favourite and winner of the Best Turned Out (he was certainly pick of the paddock but we might be a bit biased..!). Kim's conditional jockey, Ned Curtis followed his instructions to the 'tee' dropping him in behind the leaders, settling him beautifully and getting him into a nice jumping rhythm. When asked to go and win his race at the last, Hes No Trouble pulled clear effortlessly and crossed the line a comfortable 2 lengths ahead of the runner up Jaboticaba. Kim commented after the race:

We are absolutely delighted with that, we are happy to step up in trip but we need to keep him on a flat track. He seems to like Huntingdon and we will look for a race in about three weeks’ time.”

Members enjoyed a welcome glass of champagne in the Huntingdon winning connections room afterwards and all agreed it is fast becoming a firm favourite of ours!
