Swnymor win sparks lofty dreamsHeadlines
Swnymor

Tim Vaughan and owner Carl Hinchy are already getting excited about the spring prospects for Swnymor after his effortless jumping debut victory at Newbury.

Rated in the high 80s for William Haggas on the Flat, confidence was evidently high for the Blackmore Building Juvenile Hurdle as he went off the 4-6 favourite, and jockey Michael Byrne hardly had a moment's worry as he cruised 11 lengths clear of Amoralist.

"I'm delighted, but relieved as well. Where we go now, I don't know. Maybe we'll do the same job again under a penalty or we could look at Cheltenham at the end of January. You'd hope he would end up in the Triumph Hurdle but we'll try not to get too carried away yet," said Vaughan.

Poet (3-1) looks a serious recruit to National Hunt racing judged upon his impressive victory in the usually informative Coolmation Maiden Hurdle.

A dual Group Three winner on the Flat for Clive Cox, Poet was meant to go to stud but a deal fell through and he ended up being gelded and transferred to the ownership of jumping legend John Francome, although he runs under the name of Cox's wife Tina.

Jockey Dominic Elsworth had to sit tight after Poet fluffed the first flight but held him on a tight rein throughout and ended up coming two and a quarter lengths clear of Veloce.

"I'm very pleased for John, who is his rightful owner and has done all of the schooling. He used to be a major handful, which, to be honest, is why he didn't end up being a stallion. He's done so well since he's been gelded and we can now look at making a more ambitious plan," said Cox.

Handy Andy's fine third behind Rolling Aces at the Hennessy meeting set him up to take the First Great Western Novices' Limited Handicap Chase.

Colin Tizzard's gelding, yet another solid performer for the Brocade Racing Syndicate, is really starting to take to fences and doggedly held onto his lead despite the attentions of Chartreux. The trainer's son Joe was able to go clear again on the 9-4 favourite, winning by two and a quarter lengths.

"I really fancied him today, as it was a very good run here last time. He'll go up a bit for that, and we could come back here for the Mandarin Handicap Chase.," said Tizzard.
