ANDREW BALDING may have fallen short of his quest for 100 winners in 2017 but his total of 2,565,905 was his best ever in terms of prize money and it will be all guns blazing to reach that target this time around.
The evergreen Here Comes When was the major contributor when picking up £588,555 but there also major contributions from Beat The Bank, Montaly, Brorocco and Donjuan Triumphant who will once again be in the thick of the action.
The Kingsclere trainer has notched up 25 winners so far but like many has been restricted by a harsh Winter but has his team in full flow once more as he looks to turn the gears up a notch.
There are several in the three-year-old division Must Be Magic, Ocala, Perfect Illusion and Whitefountainfairy who look sure to add to the tally and a highly productive time looks on cards for the amiable Balding.
Andrew kindly guided Tony Elves of ATR about some of those he hopes can do well through a busy campaign.
