EVAN WILLIAMS had a productive time last week when his 18 runners notched up three wins and five places and his current total of 33 winners for the season is well on schedule to take him well beyond the 51 total of the 2016-17 season.
The Vale of Glamorgan trainer landed a healthy prize when Court Minstrel landed a second Silver Trophy at Chepstow in October and Aintree winner On Tour was unlucky not to bag another decent prize at Newbury’s recently inaugurated Ladbroke meeting. Kingpin of the stable could well prove to be rapid improver John Constable who followed up a Swinton Hurdle victory with success in the Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen and quietly waits in the wings for decent ground. However there is plenty of young talent making there way through the ranks and Chooseyourweapon looks a horse from which plenty more will be heard when successful at Chepstow on Saturday.
Williams said: “We’ve had a good little start and won a few nice prizes. Some of young horses have won their maidens and we are tipping away quite nicely.”
Evan kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can help swell his tally in the coming months.
