Hot to Trot: Kerry to carry on good form
Adam Brookes flags up three trainers who are in good form at present and picks out some interesting horses that may run for them in the coming days.
Jumps Trainer: Kerry Lee
It’s no secret that Kerry Lee has made a fantastic start to her career as a trainer—she had her first runners after taking over from her father Richard in July 2015—and she’s been in excellent form since the turn of the year, with three winners and a whole host of horses hitting the crossbar. Lee even managed to get another win out of the old boy Alfie Spinner, who returned from 10 months off (had also signed off for 2015/16 with a win) when making all in a staying handicap chase at Wincanton on Thursday as a 12-year-old. Lee looks set for another busy week as she has a number of entries on Tuesday and Wednesday, including another old favourite, Simply Wings, in a handicap chase at Wetherby. Simply Wings will be returning from a break as a 13-year-old, but he showed that he still had plenty to offer as a 12-year-old when finishing second of seven to Stilletto in a handicap chase at Leicester (first-time cheekpieces) when last seen in February. Magic Mustard could be another winner for the stable if running in an amateur riders’ handicap hurdle at Ludlow on Wednesday, as, while has was unable to follow up his 23-furlong handicap success at Bangor in December over the same C&D earlier this month off a 6 lb higher mark, he still showed improved form in fourth. Magic Mustard could have done with a stronger gallop too, so he could return to winning ways granted a more suitable scenario.
