Plus 8 and dry when driving in.

Java Point won well yesterday at Warwick.

The 2 mile 5 furlong Maiden hurdle was run on really good ground which JP loved.

Johnny Burke, who rides most of JP’s owners horses, was always handy and took it up coming into the straight..They won cosily and JP looks a horse with a great future especially when he goes over fences.

Bought by Ed Bailey (my godson) at the Cheltenham Tattersalls Sales a couple of years ago, after winning a Irish point, for Oisin Fanning, Neal Griffiths and Heather Haddock.. 

Delighted to train them a winner..Sadly Heather and Neal were lambing so were unable to be there, but I did see Heather's Godmother Carole Wallace.. Carole has a share in Grapevine's Starvoski

It was as I mentioned really good ground and as the jockeys said you could run anything on it.. Well done Warwick.
