Shanroe Street continued the hot form of the stable when winning the three mile handicap chase at Hexham this afternoon. A most consistent stayer who jumps boldly Shanroe deserves this win and it is a super boost for the Kelso Members Lowflyers who have had a mildly quiet year. While eleven years old Shanroe has been lightly raced and should be able to continue his good form this spring.
In the bumper Not Now Katie'S found things all a bit much and she will have a little break to grow and strengthen. She is better than this and has a decent pedigree behind her.
It is an exciting time for the yard and of course, there is a great atmosphere at home with lots of lovely horses to look forward to. A number are now starting their holidays, including the Sefton Hurdle winner Ahoy Senor who will miss his Irish trip this year, and instead, refill and prepare himself for a season novice chasing.
The sales season is starting and we will be looking at the flat breeze ups this week at Goffs UK and the form horses at the Tattersalls Cheltenham/Newmarket sales on Friday. Please contact us if you would like a list produced by Paul McIvor of our top lots.
