DELIGHTED to get off the mark for 2018 with Wimpole Hall’s convincing win at Chelmsford yesterday.
Wimpole Hall was partnered by Rab Havlin who is enjoying a purple patch. He tracked the leaders and travelled strongly throughout the race. He moved into second place with over two furlongs to go. Havlin rode to challenge over a furlong out and they led inside the final furlong and soon went clear to win by almost three lengths.
I am so pleased for Emma Banks and all the Banks family. Emma had a terrible run to Chelmsford and only just made it to the paddock pre-race! Wimpole Hall is entered at Chelmsford again next Thursday.
