Well our boy Romany Ryme has learned how to fall without doing too much damage to himself or Jonathan. However taking three falls in four races is not quite what we all had in mind!
Having reviewed yesterdays race video it looks to me that our horse was pushed to his limits by the faster pace of the race in this higher class novice hurdle race on the very testing ground.
He was out on his feet at the second last and just crumpled on landing. The bottom line is that the horse was running in class too hot for him.
The jockey gave the horse a very good ride and was in the right place at the right time however we were just not good enough on the day.
