Newbury review: Whizzbang makes a splash
A round-up of Saturday’s action of the Remainder including the promising Danny Whizzbang from Newbury.
Floressa put in a close foot-perfect round of jumping to get her career back on track from the Ladbrokes”Where The Nation Plays” Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Newbury.
This month, having gone down with a brief head to Silver Furious in the course, add over challenges at Worcester to her debut victory and the Nicky Henderson-trained four-year-old exacted revenge on her last-time-out conqueror to claim Listed honours.
Jumping slickly through the extended two-mile decoration, the 10-11 favourite transferred through the gears smartly late on to defeat Gavin Cromwell’s Irish raider Jeremys Flame with a length and a half, with the following four and a half lengths back into Silver Forever.
Henderson stated:”I was concerned they had a hard enough race the previous day, however, possibly have come back together with the same intention. Paul Nicholls’ mare got himself a punishment and that is where they have run to.
“She’s a beautiful looking mare. She will jump anything you want her to. She’s slick. Even like an arrow, she had been from this very first day at Worcester.
“She will have a rest now, as she has had three quite quick races. We will work back from the Cheltenham (Festival) mares’ newcomer race”
