The 2018/19 National Hunt season was a great one for KRB with lots of winners, for lots of different clients, also another Cheltenham Festival winner in Croco Bay and a Grade 1 winner at Aintree with If The Cap Fits. The season in Ireland ended at Punchestown and The Storyteller ran another super race to be third in the Punchestown Gold Cup ( Grade 1) and Croco Bay was third in the Pigsback.com Handicap Chase ( Grade B).
The new season has also started well with Count Simon winning again for Mrs Pat Sloan this time at their local track, Down Royal. Gordon Elliott giving Paddy Vaughan his first hurdle winner, Count Simon stayed the three mile trip well.
Another horse to follow up his previous success was Neverbeen To Paris who won the handicap hurdle easily at Kempton under Bryony Frost for owner Paul Claydon and trainer David Arbuthnot. He may now go back to run on the flat.
Now Look At Me a dual bumper winner for Tom George won on his first start over hurdles in the Paul and Clare Rooney colours, ridden by Johnny Burke. He is a nice prospect for connections.
At Ayr there was a first and last race double for KRB with Onthefrontfoot winning the maiden hurdle for Donald McCain and Streets Of Doyen taking the bumper in good style for Stewart Crawford. Onthefrontfoot was bought by KRB as a foal and Streets of Doyen was bought as a three year old store.
Kings Temptation won at Fontwell for in form trainer Ben Case for Lady Jane Grosvenor and ridden by Kielan Woods. He was bought by KRB as a foal.
Also bought as a foal was Shantewe who won her second bumper last night at Hexham for Jamie Snowden and the Sheep as a Lamb syndicate. She looks a nice prospect to go hurdling next season.
KRB flat purchases have also been running well, and Alright Sunshine won on his flat debut at Musselburgh. He was previously the winner of three bumpers and looks an exciting horse for Keith Dalgleish and Paul and Clare Rooney. For the same owners Good Vibes won the two year old novice race at Salisbury for David Evans, and she is likely to go to York next week for the Marygate Stakes (Listed). I’ll Have Another ran a good race to be third in the Pretty Polly Stakes ( Listed Race ) at Newmarket and she may also go to York this week.
