Kalanisi chasing success…

Kalanisi’s impressive strike rate of winning chasers continued on Sunday 7th October at Uttoxeter with the chasing debut success of the towering mare Valmari. The Airlie Stud bred mare made every yard of the running and jumped from fence to fence and showed good resolve up the home straightwhen challenged for the lead by the Nigel Twiston Davies trained useful hurdler Ackertac.

Having previously just raced on the flat (winning 5 times), this 1st crop daughter of Kalanisi raced 3 times over hurdles last season, winning on her debut and was also placed. She is trained by Tom Symonds ( who is in just his 2nd season as a fully-fledged trainer and he seems to have a nice chasing recruit on his hands here.

Kalanisi is now the sire of 50% winners to runners over fences to date i.e. 5 winners from 10 runners and with two of the five non winners recently placed, this % looks sure to improve in the not too distant future.

Other recent winners under rules for Kalanisi included the welcome returns from layoff of both Simarian and Kalmonto. The Evan Williams trained Simarian returned from a 16 month layoff to record two wins over hurdles within a week. Raised 17lbs for both successes to a mark of 135, a return to chasing looks likely. Hopefully his talented horse can stay sound and win a big pot this season over the larger obstacles.

Also returning from injury was the Yannick Fouin trained Kalmonto who made an impressive winning reappearance over hurdles at Auteuil on September 26th. This 6yo was winning for the 3 rd time under rules having previously won twice over fences and a return to chasing looks on the cards also. He has now won over €77,000 in prizemoney.
