This week we look at three trainers it could be very prudent to keep a close eye on in the coming week or two.
Phillip Hobbs had a slow start, as normal, to the summer but is now hitting some decent form with six winners from his first eight runners in September. Phillip is closing in on 2,500 winners in the UK and Ireland which is a very good achievement. Whilst most of this stables winners are well backed we saw Worcester winner Contented sent off at 14/1 which shows we have to consider all runners from the yard in this next week or two. Hurlstone Point has several entries in the coming week and should be winning soon. War Sound was placed in all eight starts last season over fences so a win for this horse seems overdue whilst hurdling debutant Truckin Away is rumoured to be well forwards. Chef d’Equipe last ran when not enjoying the mud at Ascot in January so it will be interesting to see how he performs this week. Consider all Phillip Hobbs horses over the next couple of weeks, scrutinise their entries and the selected race chosen.
Ismail Mohammed has had a very good summer this year having a host of winners around the UK. This Newmarket handler is still in form and we need to look out for his horses in the next week or two. Ismail has a very good record at Lingfield and sends Heart of Power there on Thursday. She was below form at Sandown earlier in September but she raced too freely having little left for the finish. This horse is better remember for her run at Meydan in March when she won on all weather surface… she hasn’t produced any form on turf so back on the all weather at Lingfield she should be at home. Earlier in the week Nibras Again, Nibras Galaxy and Now Beat It all look to have good chances and should be considered unless heavy rain arrives which will not suit any of them.
Owen Burrows seems to be picking up after a bout of virus in the yard when he had no runners at all between 17th August and the 12th September. The patience of the yard has paid off however and they have had 10 winners since running horses after the enforced break. Amongst a few interesting entries this week are Alsimsaam who is upped to seven furlongs in a nursery at Catterick. Bawaasil won impressively at Bath and he is bred to be useful and of interest when making handicap debut soon. Ustath was second at Lingfield and could win if taking up his Nottingham entry. Owen Burrows should be followed as he has some seriously good horses in his yard who should go well now the yard are on the way back up.
