Haldon Hill fulfilled his promise with a game display making all the running to win the bumper at Exeter yesterday by three lengths. He galloped some high priced rivals into the ground and looks to be an outstanding national hunt prospect. Earlier in the day Get Wishing was third in the 2m 1/4m handicap hurdle and it very much looks like he needs further to take advantage of his undoubted stamina.

The week started with good displays from Minnie Escape, who finished fourth in a hot bumper at Southwell and Bolving who ran on strongly to finish in the same position in the handicap chase at Ludlow.

Dancing Shadow runs in the Borders National at Kelso tomorrow (Sun 9th), he is very well and will relish the four miles.
