introducing our three syndicate horses & their owners:
Champion Trainer three times and one of the most successful trainers ever at The Festival with 52 winners to date. Need we say more? He dominated the Champion Hurdle in the late 1980s with See You Then. More recently handled some spectacular jumpers, including Sprinter Sacre, Bobs Worth, Long Run, Binocular and Altior.
An unraced three-year-old by Imperial Monarch (IRE) out of River Clyde (IRE).
A very smart individual, Diamond River suffered a setback in the first season as a result of being kicked when out on exercise. It was a real shame as Nicky was very impressed with him in his early career work and thought he was certainly one of his smarter stores last season. That said, he has completely recovered from this injury now and is back in doing two 'good' canters a day and, as far as Nicky is concerned, he is happy that everything is now going according to plan.
We hope he will have his racecourse debut in a bumper at the back end of this year (late November/early December most likely) and if he performs on the course as well as he has been at home, he could be a very exciting prospect.
He started his training career in 2008, having 17 winners in his first season. His biggest success to date is Druid’s Nephew winning The Ultima Business Solutions Handicap Steeple Chase at The Festival and winner of the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown with The Young Master in 2016. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Bath, Neil’s yard boast a host of fantastic facilities.
Carolines Charm has joined Neil Mulholland’s yard from Ireland where he looked a pleasing winner of his maiden point-to-point before falling at the last. He is a progressive bay four-year-old by Masterofthehorse (IRE) out of Truckers Princess (IRE).
Having struggled with his breathing and thus to see his races out over hurdles last season and throughout the summer, our trainer took the decision to try running Carolines Charm in smaller fields and over fences to allow him more space to build his confidence take advantage of his natural jumping ability. He ran in a Novice Chase at Fontwell on Thursday 29th August and, on the first time of asking over the larger obstacles, came home a ready winner beating a 7-1 on shot in Ennistown. Since then he has gone on to finish third against a more competitive field at Worcester, again in novice company and a very creditable effort given he was off a mark 20lbs higher than when he last ran in a handicap hurdle as a result of his win at Fontwell. Neil has wound him down now for a 8-10 week break with the aim to bring him back in the early Spring when the ground (hopefully!) will be starting to let up again and will suit his way of running.
Kim offers top class training facilities with an owners experience to match. Having trained over 1200 winners and achieved the magical "Big Three“, The Grand National (Mr Frisk) 1990, The Cheltenham Gold Cup (Master Oats) 1995 and The Champion Hurdle (Alderbrook) 1995 his achievements are unrivalled.
HES No Trouble
Hes No Trouble trained by Kim Bailey is an Irish point-to-point winner who won his only start at Dromahane in Ireland at the end of April 2018. A six-year-old bay gelding by Scorpion (IRE) out of She’s No Trouble (IRE), who is a full sister to the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Looks Like Trouble and therefore holds high hopes for a trip around the Prestbury track in the coming season.
Hes No Trouble has proved himself to be our flag-bearer in the first year of the syndicate as our first and only winner at Huntingdon in a Novice Hurdle back in February. As conditions dried up towards the end of the season, Kim took the decision to let him down for a well-deserved break. He is back to racing fitness again now and had his first run in a novice chase at Chepstow on 6th November where he ran a little fresh and as a result unshipped his jockey (in somewhat spectacular style!) at the second fence which was unfortunate and really just one of those things. The one silver-lining is that he now has a decent starting chase handicap mark of 122 and is now able to run in handicaps – and over the better-suited distance of 2 ½ mile as there aren’t many novice chases at this distance.
