We discussed Classical Wave after he won on his debut for Peter Charalambous and owners GG Thoroughbreds at Wolverhampton last month and I was delighted to be on him again at Lingfield Park.
He had improved in his work at home since that first win and the race couldn’t have panned out any better last week, as they got racing a long way out and that played into his hands a bit. The horse he beat won at Southwell a couple of days later, so the form has already been franked. 1m2f is perfect for him at the moment, but as the year progresses he should be able to step up to 1m4f and hopefully he can give his connections a lot of fun on the turf this year.
It was really nice to see Copinet have the speed to win over five furlongs for James Ferguson and she did it well. She had won over 6f late last year, but this win opens up more options for her and she looks a lovely prospect for her connections.
It has been a quiet week, in that I haven’t been in the car going racing (flat racing returns at Lingfield Park on Friday after a six-day break prior to the beginning of the turf season), but I have certainly been busy riding out, including at the yards of James Fanshawe, James Ferguson, Kevin Phillipart de Foy and Mike Murphy. I’m looking forward to getting back on the racecourse on Saturday, where I have five rides at Kempton Park.
