The veteran Isaacstown Lad made it a magnificent seven winners from 15 runners (47%) in the past 14 days when beating Lord Du Mesnil at Carlisle on Sunday and, as we enter into the busy Christmas period, Nicky Richards has his team in the form of their lives.
The progressive Blakerigg and exciting novice chase prospect Reivers Lad notched up a double at Newcastle last week and will soon be looking to add to their spoils and stable stalwart Simply Ned heads back to Leopardstown to try and gain a second victory in the Grade 1 Chase on December 27.
The Greystoke trainer and his team quite literally look as if they could win with the Yard’s cat right now and the genial skipper at the helm is hoping for further glories in the coming week.
Nicky said : “It’s great that we are just having a bit of dream run at the moment and we will be happy if it will continue as long as it can.
Richards kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about those he hopes can maintain his purple patch.
