Sandy Thomson has had his share of champagne moments already this season and his 16 winners in 2020-21 put him in touching distance of a personal best of 22 for last term.
Plenty of personal satisfaction can be gained from his handling of Yorkhill who returned to winning form when landing the Listed Rehearsal Chase at odds of 66-1 at Newcastle in November and Seeyouatmidnight turned back the clock when putting his best foot forward to win the Unibet Veterans' Handicap Chase at Sandown two Saturdays ago.
Yorkhill and The Ferry Master are potential contenders for the Sky Bet Handicap Chase at Doncaster and he has hopes that the former classy Bellshill will develop into Grand National contender in the coming months.
There are the likes of Bass Rock and Deluxe Range emerging through the ranks amongst the younger horses and everything is going along swimmingly from his base at Greenlaw, Duns on the Scottish Borders.
Sandy said: "We are delighted with the form of the horses and it's all down to hard work from the staff and everyone else. We have a got a lovely group of horses with some older established types and some younger prospects and plenty to look forward too."
Sandy kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about those he hopes can carry on the good work through the coming months.
