ANOTHER STOWAWAY (IRE) bounced back to form at Ludlow on Wednesday to win the 3m feature handicap chase for his owners Stephen Smith & The Gabbertas Family. He got into a nice rhythm out in front under Ciaran Gethings and kept on well in the closing stages to win comfortably. He’ll remain well handicapped and hopefully pick up another nice race whilst conditions are in his favour. His owners Mark Gabbertas & Stephen Smith have another reason to celebrate this week as they have just finished first and second in our HBA Media 5 to Follow competition. Mark topped the leader board with 118 points, closely followed by Stephen with 116. £650 and a case of champagne will be on the way to them next week!
KAKAMORA (IRE) made the long journey up to Perth worthwhile with a comfortable win in the 2m4f Handicap Hurdle. He looked to appreciate the step up in trip and made light work of his generous opening mark to win going away. He looks an exciting prospect for his owner Tim Syder and there should be plenty more to come from him next season following a well-earned break at grass.
