Indications that Hales' string are primed for the autumn

Posted on


Alex Hales wouldn't describe himself as a keen advocate of the summer Jumps fixture list, and his 50 runners so far hardly mark him out in the vanguard of our Jumps trainers. 

Nevertheless, there is clear evidence that his stable are ready for the off. Just two runners in the past 3 weeks have left Edgcote, but resulted in a second and a winner. That winner was today at Huntingdon, where Kielan Woods teamed up with No Risk With Lou to notch a 7l victory over the Skelton-trained Great Samourai in a lowly handicap chase.

This was No Risk With Lou's first run over the larger obstacles, and he appeared to attack them with zest, making all and jumping well. He'd be worth following.
