Stay up to date with the latest news from Jeremy Scott Racing
We celebrated the end of 2019 with two winners at Warwick Racecourse, Seeanythingyoulike and Urtheonethatiwant. Seeanythingyoulike has been one of the most unlucky horses and has plenty of ability however s not the most reliable. He has sky rocketed in the handicap after winning a bad race which fell apart. Urtheonethatiwant won his second race this season under a great ride from Bryan Carver. Bryan is a young jockey to keep an eye on, he rode a few winners for us point to pointing last season and has been riding out his skin recently.
Garrane struggled up in class at Plumpton, struggling with the early pace and was never happy, he was unlucky last season not to win, bumping into decent horses over fences, however it has meant his handicap mark has crept up and up. He won over hurdles on a mark of 103 and he is currently racing off 121! Stormy Flight ran a great race at Taunton on his third start over hurdles, he should now have a handicap mark and will find his level then.
Looking at the week ahead, we have Orchardstown Cross, Hey Bud, Ellens Way, Espalion and Sizable Sam entered up. Sizable Sam finished second on his debut at Wincanton in November, we are looking to syndicate him out so please get in contact if you are interested in owning this exciting youngster.
4 winners this week, Dashel Drasher made amends for removing Matt at Newbury, Haydock was a less competitive race and considering that the fences down the back straight were not jumped, it was a slightly falsely run race. He quickened up well and there are more races to be won with him. He will go back up in grade at some point and he is an exciting young horse to have in the yard.
Nifty At Fifty won on his thirteenth run for Helen Stoneman, it was a dream come true for her as Bryan rode a winner in her colours, making up for attempting to run out at Exeter. He is not the most straightforward horse, however Emma and Helen love him and he has ability. Kissesforkatie made it a double on the day for the team, Nick gave her a great ride and she deserved to win over hurdles on her fourth start. Tactical Manoeuvre managed to get his head in front at Exeter under a brilliant ride from Rex.
A busy week for us starting at Hereford and Plumpton, Stormy Flight is going the right way over hurdles, he is learning with every run and will find his level once handicapping. Two Sams made a successful debut for Team Scott at Plumpton, he needed to prove himself, he was on a lowly mark which he took advantage of under a great ride from Nick.
Kissesforkatie ran well at Exeter to finish fourth in a good novice hurdle against the boys, she set the standard in the race. Ballybough Nora ran on well at the end of the race. The star of the day was Orchardstown Cross winning the Staying Challenger Series Qualifier under a terrific ride from Rex Dingle.
Dashel Drasher made an exciting chasing debut at Newbury, finishing second to Champ. He had only schooled at home and at Phillip Hobbs' and he led the field and looked to have even Champ under the pump for a few strides. He is an exciting youngster to look forward to running in some of the decent novice chases this winter!
Fantasia Storm ran well on her debut at Fontwell, she is only four and will be stronger next season. Tactical Manoeuvre ran well on his debut fr the yard to finish 3rd.
Native Robin is a victim of his own cnsistency and finished second at Wincanton in the Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Chase, he is a great fun horse for his owners, The Punchestown Syndicate. According to the commentator, Sizeable Sam was the best named horse on the day at Wincanton, he is a big, scopey youngster who has a stride which eats up the ground. He was one we were very excited about running to see if he could replicate what he shows on the gallops. He ran a brilliant race for his debut, beaten only a short head having shown a little greeness on the run in. He ran in Camilla's colours and is for sale, Nick gave him a brilliant ride, he is one to look forward to the future.

Champagne Court was the second of our novice chasers to make a fantastic debut over the larger obstacles, he had run well in top class handicap hurdles over the past year. He is a chaser in the making and this was a fantastic chasing debut, winning by 6 lengths!
We had a busy day at Wincanton last weekend, 5 runners kept Georgina and Laura busy. Demon Fou struggled with the pace early on but ran on well to finish fourth, he was up in the weights a huge amount for his win last time. Kilcara travelled and jumped well and despite being well beaten, finished a good second to a horse who is clearly on the improve. Clondaw Dancer did all the hard work out in front, jumping and travelled well throughout the race, he was not beaten too far and it was a good first run over hurdles. Blazing Saddles was unlucky to be almost carried out on the stablees band by the loose horse on the first cuircuit, he lost his place in the race and struggled to get back on terms after that however he ran on well at the end of the race and we be one to find his level once he is handicapping. Greenview Paradise has taken well to hurdling and despite her small stature, she should find a race at her level now she has a handicap mark. Nifity At Fifty is not the most straightforward horse and it was definitely an off day on Tuesday at Chepstow.
Tikkinthebox runs at Huntingdon this afternoon, he won well at Warwick in September, when he was the best horse in the race, he struggled next time out when back over hurdles, he is back over fences this afternoon having gone up in the weights. Stormy Flight runs in the NH Auction Maiden Hurdle at Hereford tomorrow, he ran well on his debut on soft ground at Stratford, these races are a great idea to find options for horses to race against horses who were bought for a similar price rather than having to compete against some which cost over £100,000. Two Sams runs at Plumpton, he is making his debut for us, having previously been trained by Michael Blake. He could be well handicapped if he reverted back to his novice hurdle run at Taunton.
We could have a busy day at Exeter Racecourse on Haldon Gold Cup day with a few entered including Orchardstown Cross. Dashel Drasher is entered up at Newbury to make his chasing debut, it looks a decent beginners chase with the likes of Champ, Birchdale, Beakstown and Vision Des Flos entered!
