Roscommon June 24th
Another foray into the national hunt sphere today. Bavarian Girl runs in the ladies bumper, the last race on the card. She has the physique of a 3 mile chaser and that was why we went down the point to point route with her. I trained her like a flat horse for that day and she jumped like a flat horse that had never seen a fence, turning a somersault at the first. I turned her back quick and again she was brain dead, getting no further than the first. We are trying to get her foot on the ladder today. Colm who owns her, works here and he only peddles in nice horses. She wouldn’t have been kept if we didn’t see something in her. We’ve had to tone down the work load and the pace of things to give her every chance of giving herself a chance. She’ll run away fine if she settles and she’s talented enough to do something. She will probably need it but should be well capable of finishing in front of the middle of them. We’ll see.
