River Bray finished 2nd  in the National Hunt flat race. The final race on the card at Newton Abbot last Friday. It was a very good performance which backed up his promising first run at Kempton in February. He beat several well supported rivals and the winner looks to be something special. River Bray is a very good jumper and will now go over hurdles, the newly formed syndicate had a thoroughly enjoyable day and are looking forward to the future with this horse.

I have two entries this week, both at Kempton on Sunday. Ut Majeur Aulmes runs in the 2mile Handicap Chase and Admiral Secret runs in the 2mile Novice Handicap Chase. Their participation is obviously dependant on there being good or softer ground.
