It was excellent to get back to the winners enclosure with Ain't My Fault who won the two mile novice handicap chase in determined fashion for Foresight Racing and Stephen. A headstrong type at home Ain't has not always had the strongest finish but Stephen has him nicely settled both at home and in his races and he finished off well.
In the Eider we were over the moon with Haul Us In on just her second run of the season, and her seventh chase start; she warmed up to her jumping and galloped home to be seventh. She will be aimed at this race next season.
Big RIver was jumping well but faded after a circuit and was found to have a fibrillating heart. We will give him an ECG at home before deciding on his future. A very talented horse he has finally sorted his jumping out and we were very hopeful of him over the four miles. I am pleased to report that his heart returned to normal by the morning but we will still investigate it in the next week.
