RACING POST
NEWS WEEK MONDAY DECEMBER 19th TO SUNDAY DECEMBER 25th 2011
SOME INTERSTING RUNNERS TODAY TO FOLLOW
FROM DAVID PIPE'S TEAM (RP 24.12.2011)
YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED

DAVID SETS THE SCENE:
 "WE SHOULD have some decent chances among our 14 Boxing Day runners, spread around six different meetings, including Leopardstown, but there's only one place to start ..... 
KEMPTON PARK
GRANDS CRUS faces his toughest task to date over fences;
2.00 williamhill.com Feltham Novices' Chase, a mini-RSA Chase in which his five opponents include BOBS WORTH and SILVINIACO CONTI. In an ideal world he'd prefer softer ground and a more galloping track, but I'm sure it will be okay for him. He's entitled to be favourite and let's hope he wins again.
*2.00 williamhill.com Feltham Novices' Chase (In Memory of Nigel Clark) (Grade 1)
(Class 1) 4 yo+ over 3m winner £22,780
WIN : GRANDS CRUS (FR) 6 11-7 partner TOM SCUDAMORE handler presenter? trainer D Pipe for Roger Stanley and Yvonne Reynolds 111. 6-5f from SILVINIACO CONTI  
3.40 "We also run MY BROTHER SYLVEST in the handicap hurdle there but I should think the handicapper has hold of him now.
 


TOWCESTER
12.50 "We run BATTLE GROUP in the beginners' chase and if you were twisting my arm I'd say he was my Christmas banker. He was a mid-140's hurdler and ran a good first race over fences at Wetherby. He's been schooling well at home.

3.35 "We also run PRASINA RUSSATA, an Irish point-to-pointer, in the bumper he's bred to be a three-miler, so Towcester is a good starting point.

   
FFOS LAS
"2.50 SWING BILL heads for the Professional Security Management Handicap Chase where it's a small field for a nice prize. He's got top weight and the ground will be testing enough, but CONOR O'FARRELL takes 3lb off and he'll go through it.

"3.25 EL LOBO runs in the Lincwear Handicap Chase. The handicapper has put him on 128, which looks high enough, but he's a likeable horse and 2m3f on soft ground will suit him well.

HUNTINGDON
"12.15 BIG OCCASION is the only one going to Huntingdon, he runs in the 3m2f novice hurdle but he is an important runner, not least because he could provide CHRISTIAN WILLIAMS with a winning return after more than a year on the sidelines. The softer the better, as all BIG OCCASION does is jump and stay.


WINCANTON
"We have four of the nine runners in the Pertemps Qualifier
1.40 ASHKAZAR who has two ways of running but has been freshened up since Wetherby.
BUENA VISTA who has the headgear back on
SHOEGAZER, freshened up since dissapointing us somewhat at Chepstow  DECOY who won at the Paddy Power meeting and then ran into a good one at   Ascot. DECOY is a few pounds out of the handicap so we're claiming from him.
 
2.50 " SHAKING HANDS, unlucky to be caught on the line
over 4m at Exeter. Might find 3m1f on the sharp side at Wincanton in the Handicap Chase, but he'll be ridden by prominently and if HADDEN FROST can get him into a rhythm he'll have a chance


3.50 "KILRYE has his first run for us in a bumper. He was bought after finishing second in a similar race in Ireland and will love the ground.


LEOPARDSTOWN
"Leopardstown hospitality worth the visit alone.
   
IRISH TEAM
"NOTUS DE LA TOUR and SONA SASTA are on their way to Leopardstown today (24.12.2011). We're running NOTUS DE LA TOUR over 2m in the Grade 1 novice chase - generously sponsored by the Racing Post, I should add- on Boxing Day and he'll love the conditions. He was a an easy winner of his first two chases and his Exeter third behind WALKON under a penalty, which we knew was good form anyway, has been franked by runner-up ZAYNAR'S win at Ascot. ROBBIE POWER rides.
   
"SONA SASTA runs in the Paddy Power Chase on Tuesday, a 0-145 handicap with e190,000 added, which is tremendous prize-money and why we are going. He was a good second at Chepstow last time and 3m on soft ground is ideal.
   
"They couldn't be more helpful at Leopardstown and I know the staff will be well looked after. In fact, I hear they're being put up at Killiney Castle, so it sounds as if they might have a better Christmas than me!"

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
"Whatever happened to... Lewes Racecourse?
The late 'Towser' Gosden, father of Newmarket trainer John, sent out Aggressor to win the 1960 King George at Ascot, while his successor Gordon Smyth landed the 1966 Derby with Charlottown.
Auriol Sinclair, who was the second woman to obtain a licence, trained there with great success in the 1960s, and at nearby Telscombe, James Hackett saddled Shannon Lass to win the 1902 Grand National."

A long month – and a cruel one

By Ian Carnaby

"John Bolton’s career touches on a vanished England
John Bolton’s career touches on a vanished England, where a policeman might give you a clip round the ear, Southampton and Portsmouth supporters stood together and the very idea that women might hold a licence to train horses was enough to induce apoplexy in Portman Square.


"So, until Florence Nagle wore down the authorities, John held the licence for Auriol Sinclair and a very successful pair they were, landing some well-organised coups, most notably Magic Boy in the 1958 Wokingham at Royal Ascot. Talking of a vanished England, he had only 7st 5lb to carry."
Auriol Sinclair
One of the pioneers among female trainers in the 1960s and the first to win major races and to record 100 winners. Ran a successful gambling stable as she loved a tilt at the ring, and famously once apprehended an escaping prisoner from Lewes jail, next to her yard, with a pitchfork.
