And Another Thing!
This William Haggas-trained Kodiac colt scored for the fifth time at Kempton Park yesterday when he claimed the Listed one-mile £40,000 British Stallion Studs EBF Hyde Stakes. Second Thought, owned by Liam Sheridan, is proving to be a real all-weather star, having notched up four victories on Polytrack and one on Tapeta, the most notable being his six-furlong triumph in the £150,000 32Red Three-Year-Old All-Weather Championships Final at Lingfield on Good Friday. This time Second Thought was tackling two furlongs extra which was probably why he was sent of at 5/1. James Doyle kept the three-year-old handy mid-field and urged him forward from about two furlongs out and he eventually got the better of the Jeremy Noseda-trained Keystroke by half a length.
The Highflyer/Million In Mind 4-Y-O & 5-Y-O Novices' Chase at Warwick yesterday provided this Doctor Dino gelding with the chance to show he can still cut the mustard. The Alan King-trained Sceau Royal won the Bet At racinguk.com Novices' Chase by four-and-a-half lengths at this West Midlands track at the beginning of October but then, at Cheltenham next time out, he was denied victory by just a neck by Dan Skelton's North Hill Harvey in the quareintheair.com Novices' Chase. Daryl Jacob gave Sceau Royal a positive ride from the outset and the duo was well clear when they turned home, negotiating the last two fences with ease and cruising to a twenty-one length victory.
It seems that Ruby Walsh feels that this Westerner gelding has got what it takes to make his mark in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury on December 2. The Willie Mullins-trained Total Recall, one of the horses who was switched from the Sandra Hughes' stable over the Summer, immediately went on to score in last month's Munster National at Limerick. That victory looks all the more significant as the runner-up, Alpha Des Obeaux, subsequently went on to win the Clonmel Oil Chase. Unfortunately the County Kildare jockey will not be aboard a week on Saturday as he is sidelined with a broken leg.
