Court Cave progeny enjoying success

Court Cave’s progeny have enjoyed numerous successes since our last update, particularly over the larger obstacles. His standout winner so far this season has to be the Boardsmill bred Court Minstrel, winner of his two races over fences so far. Having signed off his second season over hurdles in April at Ayr with a gallant attempt to land back to back running’s of the Grade 2 Scottish Champion Hurdle (finished second), Court Minstrel finished up with an official hurdle rating of 154. He made his eagerly awaited chasing debut on September 29th at Newton Abbot and duly landed the odds. His second start over fences was at Cheltenham on October 17th and he put in a faultless round of jumping under Paul Moloney to record an impressive success. Court Minstrel looks like a real nice prospect for the better novice chases in the spring time and owner Janet Davies has a lot to look forward to.

Another recent novice chase winner by Court Cave was The King Of Brega, successful on his chasing debut at Fairyhouse on October 11th. This 7 year old gelding was recording his third career success and he put in an exhibition of jumping under Robbie Colgan to land the odds for the BMW Syndicate and his Trainer/Breeder Pat Downey from Slane in County Meath.

Downey can also claim credit as breeder of another recent Court Cave winner in the shape of Nearest The Pin, winner of a handicap chase at Worcester on September 26th . Trained by John ‘Shark’ Hanlon and ridden by Tony McCoy, Nearest the Pin was recording his third career success.

Other winners in recent months have included novice chase winner Big Casino for Nigel Twiston Davies and owner/breeder Margaret Jukes from Wales, dual hurdle winner Finish The Story (bred by Countess Eileen Mountcharles), the Martin Keighley trained dual winner Kyles Faith (bred at Boardsmill) and the Lucinda Russell trained chase winner Settledoutofcourt.
