A very exciting prospect, Docpickedme is a four-year-old Chestnut gelding by Getaway and out of Hard Luck, an Old Vic mare.


He won his Irish point to point at Ballycahane in March 2020 showing plenty of stamina and a turn of foot to beat talented sons of Shirocco and Coastal Path who have both gone on to make £100K and £150K respectively. Affectionately known as ‘Derek’, named after Derek O’Connor who was his regular jockey, he was bought at the Tattersalls Cheltenham Festival Sale by Harry who admittedly had a soft spot for ‘Derek the Dude’ before selling him to the Syndicate in May 2020.

 

In his three runs for us in the 2020-21 Season, Derek finished second in his debut Novices’ hurdle at Aintree back in November, beaten by Wilde About Oscar a very well respected individual in the Skeleton’s string. He then ran at a very heavy-going Chepstow and finished a respectable fifth in conditions which were less than ideal and, at the third time of asking, got off the mark with a lovely win in a 2m4½f Maiden Hurdle at Southwell on Monday 8th March. Daryl Jacob did the steering on this occasion and fed back after the race that he had done it very nicely and expected was still a lot to come with him running slightly ‘greenly’ in the finishing stages but nevertheless, seeing off his competition well to return the winner by 3½ lengths.

 

As this was his third run over hurdles, he has now been given a nicely workable handicap mark of 119 so he will aim to be back in work later in the summer and as he is still able to run in novice company (under a penalty) until the end of October, we have the option to do that or we can just go straight into a handicap.
