Result – 2/10

point to point maiden 2 ½ miles

Going: Good

Glenmount aka ‘Tony’ looked a picture of health coming off the lorry. What an amazing transformation to the horse that arrived from Ireland in the summer, and testimony to all the hard work that Julie puts in.

The race was a competitive 4 & 5 year old maiden with 10 runners, Tony being sent off at 7/1 under James King.

The race went off at a good pace which was maintained throughout. Tony was settled in mid-division, jumping well and gaining in confidence as the race progressed.

With 2 fences to go and 4 runners in contention James moved him to the front, only for the closest horse to fall and cause Tony to veer left, maybe a slight advantage lost here.

Coming round the home bend the race had come down to two runners, with Tony jumping the last a length in the lead only to be caught 50 yards from the line by My Lucky Star, a 4 year old who Tony was giving 14 lbs to.

Everyone was over the moon with the race Tony had run and with how quickly he recovered afterwards. He has gained so much confidence and was unlucky today.
