Henry Bee was sent of favourite, as short as 9/4 in places. We fully expected a good run, Given a better draw and a bit more experience. It was a very rough race, so rough that Henry had a shoe pulled of round the first bend, Hiow much this cost us will never know. We were very pleased with his attitude as he held his own round the bend making sure that no one got past.
Turning for home Paul kicked for home, knowing that Henry may want further decided to burn them off, Henry hit the front and his inexperience showed, Thinking he had done enough he pricked his ears un-sure what to do, It was only when Les Verguettes came past him that Henry kicked on again, Fighting back to the line…. He was beaten on a bob of heads.
Paul was gutted that he had not got his up but Henry has now learnt the game, next time he hits the front he will know what to do. He has the right attitude and is a winner waiting to happen
