Goffs Newbury £50k Bumper Final


It would have been very difficult not to be impressed by Chez Castel Mail‘s success at Fontwell Park in February, and on the back of that he was sent off among the favourites for the prestigious, and valuable, Goffs UK Spring Sales Bumper at Newbury last weekend.

He travelled very nicely to the home bend, but they quickened off the front and, on drying ground, he was caught a little flat-footed and wasn’t able to reel in the leaders, before just getting tired late on.

Still, it was a fine effort in defeat to finish sixth of 20, beaten under 10 lengths, having been giving weight away all round, including 11lbs to the winner.  On adjusted ratings, he is within 1lb of the race winner and again, he is another lovely National Hunt prospect for next season.
