The P G Tipsters

Phantom Getaway is an imposing son of last season’s leading sire for winners over hurdles and fences, Getaway. He convincingly won a Point To Point in Ireland earlier this year staying on strongly up the hill going away. It was an impressive performance achieving a high point to point rating of 91+

From a good family of graded winners, he has all the hallmarks to make a top class staying chaser in time. Reminds kim of his record breaking Grand National winner Mr Frisk!

Making his racecourse debut in a bumper at Wetherby in December where he finished fifth. He was then stepped up in trip and made his hurdles debut two weeks later at Ludlow where he ran a lovely race to finish second. He will continue to run in hurdles for now before heading chasing in the autumn.

The Surprise Syndicate

Magical Escape is a well bred and extremely good looking gelding, he was bought from Willie and Mandy Bryan and they did his pretraining before sending him here. As with all the three year olds, it is very early days but we really like what we see and he could make his bumper debut some time this spring.

Ever the Optimists

A good looking gelding by the very popular stallion Getaway. Charming Getaway did some very smart pieces of work in the spring and then had a good summers break.

Making his racecourse debut in early December in a bumper at Ludlow before heading over hurdles a month later, on both occasions showing plenty of promise and improvement. He will continue over hurdles for the remainder of the season before potentially heading over fences in the autumn.

The Front Ears Syndicate

The Front Ears Syndicate has been formed for Fair Frontieres an exciting six year old purchased from Ireland. After finishing a close second in a competitive maiden hurdle around Navan, he held an entry and was favourite for a high class bumper at Fairyhouse before being snapped up by us for his new owners. 

He made an impressive season debut at Worcester, winning by 41 lengths before running a disappointing race at Sandown in December. After a short break he was soon back in the winners enclosure in a hurdle at Warwick which secured him an entry for The Cheltenham Festival where unfortunatley the ground conditions were not ideal so we rerouted to Exeter where he again won gamely. He will continue his hurdling campaign for the remainder of this season.

The Percy Vera's Syndicate

Percy Veering is by Dewhurst and Derby winner Sir Percy, who is now making his mark as a National Hunt sire.

His most famous progeny to date being The Cheltenham Festival RSA Chase winner Presenting Percy.

He has been very immature but after making his racecourse debut in a bumper at Southwell in December he ran a promising first race over hurdles in January at Exeter and looks to be heading in the right direction.

The Grapevine Syndicate

Starvoski was an easy 10 length debut winner of an Irish point-to-point and is by Aizavoski, a useful 12f performer in France from the family of Cape Verdi and by top sire Monsun. 

Starvoski has been syndicated for The Grapevine , a trusted network of private members, linking kindred spirits from town or country. Members promote, sell or buy goods and services within the network. 

She made her racecourse debut in a hurdle at Wincanton before heading to Doncaster where she finished fifth in what turned out be a hot contest. She won her first race at Southwell in February before looking like the winner at Sandown when a mistake at the last left her in fourth. After a summer at grass she made her chasing debut in December and after a few disappointing finishes we sent her back over hurdles for a brilliant win at Uttoxeter.

The Strollers Syndicate

A new syndicate has been put together for Parc d'Amour, a stunning 4 year old gelding by top class middle distance sire Walk in the Park; now a leading National Hunt Sire with the likes of Douvan and Min amongst his progeny. This gelding is related to Cheltenham Festival World Hurdle winner More of That, Santenay a Grade 2 hurdle winner and Eastlake who won the Topham Chase.

He made his much anticipated racecourse debut in a bumper at Doncaster where he won going away very impressively. He is a big horse with a bright future and plenty of scope to go over the bigger obstacles.

The Galante Gallopers

Galante De Romay is a good looking filly by Lord Du Sud who is a half sister to the exciting Espoir De Romay. A real eye-catching filly with plenty of size and scope who we hope will be a high-class performer.

She made her racecourse debut in a Ludlow bumper in December before heading straight over hurdles at Huntingdon in January where she ran a promising race to finish third. She has the size and scope to jump fences in years to come; obviously if her brother does well it is only improving her pedigree.

Garrett, Meacham & Woodhall

Gerard Mentor is a real bonny horse who has shown some respectful form in bumpers and over hurdles, never quite getting his in front but always in the places.

He has had a winter break and is now back in training for a summer campaign over hurdles, hopefully will get his head in front very soon.

It's Only Money Syndicate

Design Icon was purchased from Tattersalls Ireland in May 2019. A very free moving son of Schiaparelli who has gradually been progressing all season. He was one of many four year olds who did not get a run in his first season but he did a few nice pieces of work before his summer break and has come back looking a lot bigger and stronger.

He gained plenty of experience running in three hurdle races all over 2m and stayed on well to win a hurdle around Market Rasen when stepped up in trip and will be a fun horse this summer.

Shinobithemoney Syndicate

Shinobi was purchased from the Newmarket Tatts Guineas Sale in May 2019 after failing to see the racecourse on the flat for David Simcock. He is a fine looking horse by Ifraaj, the same stallion as Charbel and although it is early days, we are very pleased with what we have seen so far.

He made his racecourse debut a winning one in a bumper at Exeter and has since won two hurdle races and been placed on numerous occasions. He finished fourth at Worcester first time over fences and after a winter break returned to hurdles at Worcester; with a little help from the Handicapper he is sure to be back in the winners enclosure this summer.

The Ten Sages

Voyburg is a stunning individual by young sire Sageburg whose offspring include Cheltenham Festival winner Ch'tibello. He was working very nicely in the spring prior to the end of racing due to covid and was turned out for a long summers break. He has shot up during the summer and as a result rather outgrew his strength and has benefitted hugely from Jason Maguire's water treadmill. 

He made his racecourse debut at Warwick in December finishing 9th in a fast paced bumper, following a short break he headed back to Warwick for his hurdles debut where he finished fourth before stepping up in trip and finishing a good fifth at Southwell.

He has had five runs over hurdles this season, winning at Exeter and being placed twice after; he is learning all the time, has shown plenty of promise and is a big staying chaser in the making.

Yes He Does Syndicate

Does He Know is the first horse we have trained by Alkaased, he is a five year old who won his only start in an English point-to-point. A very happy horse, he always looks to be enjoying his work and likes to get on with things. He made his racecourse debut for us in October 19, finishing second around Hereford. We stepped him up in trip on his next start when he again finished second in what looked like a very competitive race around Ludlow.

He made his season debut a winning one back at Ludlow in October before heading to Cheltenham to win the Ballymore Novices Hurdle at The Showcase meeting. A few weeks later we returned to Cheltenham for another competitive Ballymore Novices Hurdle where he won again in impressive style which secured his entry for the main Ballymore Hurdle at The Cheltenham Festival; he finished fifth which was a great result for his owners.

He kicked off his chasing campaign with a strong win at Chepstow before impressivley winning again back at Cheltenham in October. He found one too good when finishing second at Cheltenham in November but took all the beating when winning the Reynoldstown Chase impressively at Ascot. This victory secured an entry for The Ultima Chase at The Cheltenham Festival but that may have come too soon after his exerts at Ascot. He is a horse who continues to progress and now has some exciting opportunites in this future.

The Midgelets Syndicate

Espoir de Romay was in Ireland prior to coming to Thorndale and was in training with a view to running in a Point-to-Point however, it was deemed more time would be benefical and how they have been proved right.

A very impressive novice hurdle winner who should have followed up in a listed race at Newcastle only to be pipped on the line. He bolted up on his handicap debut at Wincanton and was so impressive we felt we had to go to the Cheltenham Festival for the Conditional Jockeys Race. He ran well for most of the way but got caught out by his lack of experience in the last mile.

Espoir made his winning chasing debut at Huntingdon in November, this huge horse who had a wind operation since his last run at Cheltenham in March was a worthy winner. He then went to Haydock and finished second on heavy ground this race took quite a bit out of him so after a long break, he went to Leicester where he duly bolted up. We missed Cheltenham and headed to Aintree where he fell at the last in the Grade 1 Mildmay Novices Chase when looking like the winner. He is now one of the top rated novice chasers in the country and has a very exciting future.

The Second Chancers

Shantou Express was purchased from the Goffs Landrover Sale 2018, a lovely free mover who came to hand quite quickly last season. We decided to run in a bumper at Ludlow in March and frankly we were slightly disappointed that he was beat. The form of the race has worked out to be very strong, which he then franked by winning impressively at Straftord. The plan was always to go for the listed race at Ascot where he found the ground far to heavy for him but, having said that, he still ran an absolute blinder to finish third only beaten by 4 1/2 lengths. After such a hard race we gave him a long break with a view to coming back in the spring.

His bumper form is red hot, he started his hurdle campaign with two good seconds at Stratford and Uttoxeter before finally getting his head in front at Exeter in October. He then headed to Sedgefield in December and on very wet ground, he won by 12lengths. After a short break he ran a great race to finished by a neck at Wetherby before disappointing at Haydock in April. After a summer at grass he made his chasing debut in October around Uttoxeter before heading back over hurdles in December; continueing over hurdles he was back in the winners enclosure at Market Rasen in March; he will continue to race over hurdles until the ground dries up.

The Blazing Optimists

Blazon was initially purchased at the Goffs Doncaster sales 2016 with a view to running over hurdles. He started life for us in bumpers winning his debut at Lingfield before finishing second under a penalty at Huntingdon. After this promising start, we found that hurdling was not his game and decided to give him a campaign on the flat. Once we got him handicapped, he rattled off three wins within a month in early 2019. 

He has been a bit of a star since reverting to the flat and is a multiple winner who seems to love the all-weather tracks. Racking up three wins last season at Kempton and Wolverhampton, he has had a winter break and will be back for a summer all-weather campaign this spring. He hasn't got many secrets from the handicapper but when he is on a winning mark there will be more races to win with him.
