Exciting Balgemmois off the mark

We have always thought plenty of Balgemmois, so it was great to see him get off the mark at the fifth attempt at Leicester yesterday under Brendan Powell.

Purchased as a store in May last year, he placed twice in juvenile hurdles in Jan/Feb but was then given a good break to let him develop.  Though he finished down the field on his reappearance at Wincanton, he had gone well for a long way that day and, dropped back to the minimum trip, he made all the running under a good ride from Brendan, just holding off the determined challenge of the eventual runner-up.

We’ll see what the handicapper does with him next week before making any plans, but he is a lovely prospect for the future and, in the short-term, hopefully he can make a very bold bid to follow up next time!
