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
Henry Bee made his debut at wolves on Thursday….. Paul Hanagan booked to ride in prep for his trip to Dubai. After speaking to Richard a good run was expected but in no way as good as Henry bee delivered.
Henry Bee took every thing in his stride from parade ring to cantering down to the start, for his first run he showed all the right signs. We had been given a bad draw 8/8 after 3 non runners it was left to Paul to make the choice how to run the race and hope that Henry played ball.
He looked a bit taken off his feet at 1st but he was soon moving with the group and looked to be traveling well, he was very wide all the way round, coming off the final bend Henry really started to pick up coming to challenge the leaders, ( if you listen to the race replay you can hear wildcard owners shouting his name) just when we thought the race was in our sights Jamie Spencers mount jinked right taking the 2nd horse with him and knocking Henry off his stride and our chance had gone…. Paul let him coast home in to 3rd.
His bad draw and slight greenness were his downfall but he will come on so much for the run, Paul was very happy after getting off him a horse we will have fun with were his words. We expect to see him again in 2/3 weeks
