Pencilfulloflead stayed on strongly to win the Florida Pearl Novice Chase ( Grade 2) at Punchestown and looks a lovely staying chase prospect for the future for owner Brian Acheson.

Fighter Allen won the maiden hurdle nicely at Punchestown for owner Chris Jones, the French import looks a nice horse for the future.

Metier made all to win impressively over hurdles at Ascot for Harry Fry, owner Gary Stevens and ridden by Sean Bowen. Metier looks an exciting horse for connections and he has some nice targets for the season ahead.

Thedevilscoachman won the maiden hurdle in good style for Noel Meade to add to his previous bumper success, the son of Elusive Pimpernel looks an exciting young horse for owner JP McManus.

Stoners Choice won his third hurdle in a row when winning at Market Rasen under Max Kendrick for his mother Carolyn, and the same connections won with Ratfacemcdougall at Musselburgh.

Supakalanistic has been a super little horse for Jump For Fun Racing winning five times. His previous win was on the flat over twelve furlongs, and he won last week at Kempton in a three mile handicap hurdle. He is trained by Nigel Twiston – Davis and was given a lovely ride by Zac Baker.

Ben Case has his horses in great form, and he looks to have a nice young horse on his hands with Fern Hill who won nicely at Wetherby. Dash of Blue also won well at Southwell for owners Bluebyu. They were KRB store and foal purchases respectively.

Another store purchase was Town Parks, who has since gone on to win five times, his most recent at Hereford for trainer Kerry Lee.

Arthur Moore’s horses are also running well and the mare Fag An Bealach stayed on strongly to win the handicap chase at Naas this being her third success.
