THE GERMAN ANGLE ….
Another great day for Fourmileracing. I hope you were eagle eyed enough on Twitter this morning for a short period when our purchase from Germany , NEXIUS, was napped at 9/2 and for a two points win. He won apologising and it caps off a great week for me personally and more importantly the team of Stauffenberg, Malone and Cullinane. I must give a mention to Christian Von De Recke who also played a part in his purchase. I always say and will keep mentioning it, TEAMWORK.
Nexius should go on from here. He loves flat galloping tracks on decent ground and will get up to three miles no problem. I hope the handicapper doesn’t get too carried away as this was a poor race, maybe a ten pound penalty ? That would be nice. Wilson Renwick gave him a lovely ride, covered him up in the small field and yet giving him full vision of his hurdles. He jumped impeccably and this is no mean feat for a novice in his first handicap, they normally don’t and moreover rarely win in such circumstances.
Ordensritter , Irving and now Nexius have won out of our first draft from Germany. No pressure at all now on Venetia Williams [ Lochnagar] and Tony Mullins [ Coolfighter and Erlkonig] and John Quinn [Tahira]. !!! Basically , they will all win if staying sound.
Again, thanks to all the team.
