Lucy Wadham secured a decent prize at Cheltenham's final fixture of the season for professional riders today, when Martello Sky won her fourth race of the season in the Listed Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Novices Hurdle on a card solely for mares and fillies.
Lucy has enjoyed her best season since 2015-16, topping £230,000 in winnings from her 23 winners. Rare among trainers, she shows a healthy £40.57 positive to a winning £1 stake from her 136 runners. Amidst a town where Flat racing rules, Newmarket-based Wadham is flying the flag successfully for the winter game.
Gratifying also to see today a Pointing graduate to the higher echelons in The Player Queen, winner of the concluding mares Bumper. Trained by Mel Rowley, the winner was last seen winning her Maiden at Maisemore back in October, and retains a 100% record from her two runs. All good news for when she comes to the sale ring no doubt. The second horse home was Game On Foir Glory, trained by.. Lucy Wadham. There'll have been as many rooting for her horse, ridden by Brian Hughes, to narrow his deficit in the Jockeys' title race.
Meantime, the nearest East Anglian Pointing fans are going to get to action in the area is Aldington in Kent tomorrow and Edgcote on Sunday. Courses that cannot water are finding it difficult to flush out runners unsurprisingly.
