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.
Retained from the previous 2018-20 Syndicate, Hes No Trouble proved himself to be somewhat of a flag-bearer for the first two seasons 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.
He underwent a minor wind operation in February after a run on Heavy ground at Ludlow exposed signs of a weakness and the Covid pandemic put pay to any further runs that season to see if the surgery had improved this.
He came back for the current 2020-21 season to run over fences and initially, never really had the better ground he so needs but still put up some commendable efforts against all odds to finish fifth in a 0-125 Handicap Chase at Wetherby on his first appearance and fourth at Huntington (his favourite course!) in December.
Gladly, as the weather dried up towards the start of the spring, so too did the ground which finally allowed us to run him on the Good to Soft ground he was calling out for in a 2m3½f Handicap Chase at Wetherby on Monday 8th March. Under an archetypal David Bass ride and with cheek pieces on for the first time, Hes No Trouble showed he was right back to his best. He jumped superbly, helped by David’s positive riding, and disputed the leaders throughout before going on to score by an eventual nine lengths to the runner-up, the Oliver Greenall-trained favourite Zalvados. This completed an across-the-card double on the day for the Syndicate with Docpickedme picking up the first prize earlier on at Southwell Racecourse so, the 8th March will be fondly remembered by all!
