CHAMPAGNE CITY provided the yard with our first winner of the 2021/22 campaign at Warwick on Monday in the 2m Handicap Hurdle. He backed up his recent return to form with another dominant display, making all and jumping well under a confident Ciaran Gethings. He will now be aimed for a valuable open handicap over C&D on the 19th May, it would be great if he could secure the hat-trick for his owner Roger Brookhouse.

FORGOT TO ASK (IRE) continued the good form of the yard at Market Rasen earlier today when winning the competitive 3m Handicap Chase in the colours of Julie Hoskins. He was up 1lb for his win at Plumpton on his previous start and followed up in taking style. He relished the good ground, jumped well throughout and readily drew clear when Ciaran asked for his efforts approaching the last.
