All Systems Go For Lostintranslation For A Cracking King George
King George VI Chase
It was a fantastic performance on Saturday from Lostintranslation.
He beat Bristol De Mai at Haydock, in his first step up to the big boys’ league – and he did it very well.
He settled great at the back and travelled into the race very, very smoothly. He had a very high cruising speed and jumped fantastically well.
He came out of it with flying colours and it’ll be all systems go now for the King George.
The King George is looking like it’ll be a cracking race on St Stephen’s Day. Cyrname put in a brilliant performance on Saturday beating Altior and he looked like 3 miles won’t be a problem to him.
He jumped great. He made one mistake early on and after that he jumped from fence to fence and really outstayed Altior. You’re going to have last year’s King George winner, Clan Des Obeaux, also so it’s going to be a brilliant race.
I was thrilled to win the Troytown Chase at Navan on Sunday. It was an excellent performance by Chris’s Dream. He was two from two around Navan before the race. Henry de Bromhead had him spot on for his first run of the season.
He jumped and travelled like a buck and felt like a graded horse in a handicap.
I saw the incident with racing photographer Pat Healy head on at Navan; it was horrible. Entoucas crashed through the inside railing just after the post colliding with Pat. He was extremely lucky.
I was talking to him on Monday morning and he said that there was no major damage done thankfully. He didn’t break any bones but is very sore and will be for a few days.
