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 proved himself to be our flag-bearer in the first syndicate as a dual winner – firstly, in a Novice Hurdle at Huntington in February 2019 and later that year in November, he won his Novice Chase around Huntington too.
The last run he had for us before the Covid-19 pandemic brought UK racing, and indeed the whole country, to a standstill was in a 3m Novice Chase at Ludlow on Heavy ground on 19th February which revealed a very slight wind issue as he turned into the straight the last time. He was swiftly booked in to have a routine soft palette procedure which he underwent on 26th February.
He had his first run back in a 0-125 Handicap Chase at Wetherby on bet365 Charlie Hall Chase Day (Saturday 31st October) where he finished a credible fifth given the ground was a lot softer than he would have wanted following a change in going from Good to Soft to Soft (verging on Heavy) after a good dose of rain on the morning of racing (or ‘Storm Adrian’ if you prefer!). Feedback from jockey David Bass was that he was actually very pleased by his effort given the softer going made it difficult for him to get into a nice jumping rhythm so he was bolstered with how he stuck his neck out to finish fifth. He had dropped back in trip to 2m31/2f on this occasion – which is the distance he won over at Huntington – but both Kim and David felt he could handle further again as long as on better ground so he will likely run over slightly further and hopefully, in better going next time out.
