Manucci wins at Fontwell – Thursday 26th December

We are thrilled that Manucci won at Fontwell on Boxing Day in the Juvenile Maiden Hurdle. Ridden by Josh Moore he handled the extremely heavy ground well and jumped superbly from the front to win convincingly. He will now run in a Triumph Hurdle trial. Congratulations to owners John Connolly and Odile Griffith and well done to Eric Keane who looks after Manucci at home. Cogital also put up an improved performance on his second run over hurdles to finish a promising second and we hope he will get off the mark over hurdles soon.
