Pam Sly is enjoying a red hot streak of form presently, the latest indication of which is a winner in today's conditional jockeys handicap hurdle at Huntingdon with Takeit Easy, ridden by Paul O'Brien.
Takeit Easy was one of just four individual winners for the yard last season, in which Eileendover had the sages talking of the Champion Bumper briefly. The six year old has enjoyed a good summer, winning at Ludlow in late May, and just missing out at Stratford the following month, both when ridden by Gina Andrews.
But when a yard runs into form, sometimes even the most surprising horses will win. And by anyone's standards, Pam Sly is in red hot form right now with four winners from six runners in the past fortnight. Winners at Pontefract, Leicester and Yarmouth may not raise the pulse of TV Viewers looking for clues to this weekend's Qipco Champions Day, but they advertise the claims of this much understated senior trainer in Newmarket.
Also this week, Sarah Humphrey continued her reacquaintance with winner's enclosures around the country. Last month, we reported on Railway Muice providing a first winner in more than 700 days, and on Tuesday, the same 8 year old gelding continued his streak of form with a third winner in the racingtv.com Handicap Hurdle at Huntingdon's second fixture. Making all under Nick Scholfield, he went clear at the second last and maintained a 2l advantage over the runner-up from the vaunted yard of Jackdaws Castle.
