Taunton, Thursday 13th April

Today we travel to Taunton to run two nice horses, Bob and Co and Il Va De Soi.

Bob and Co runs in the Hunter Chase at 2pm. Tommie O’Brien is stepping in for Alice Stevens, who had a fall on Monday so we wish her well and hope for a speedy recovery. Tommie is a talented rider and I’m sure will do a good job in her spot.

I have respect for Sir Ivan whose been running decent races in handicaps and now turns his attention to Hunter Chases. I was really pleased with Bob at Cheltenham, I probably asked Alice to ride him a little bit far back in the field but he stayed on well having had a year off. He seems well at home and we’re looking forward to running him.

Il Va De Soi goes in the bumper at 5.25pm. He ran really nicely at Kempton in February. I’ve been pleased with him since, he’s progressing nicely. We’re really looking forward to going hurdling with him next season and this will be his last run this season before being turned away for the summer. He’s a nice horse and a step up on the Kempton run will see him run well in this race.
