Lucy Wadham has had a quiet jumps season by her standards, but enjoyed a late flourish at Warwick this afternoon, as her two runners landed her a handsome hurdle double.
Last season's 19 winners amassed a personal best haul of nearly £1/4m in prize money - not bad for a yard with such a modest number of horses. This year's season will finish some £40k adrift of that sum, firmly in the mid-division of the Trainers' table, from just 14 winners.
Maiden hurdler Scene One set the ball rolling, justifying 7/4 favouritism from a promising second at Fontwell earlier in the month. The second winner hadn't attracted much interest in the ring, but Regarding Ruth picked up the leader two out and ran on gamely enough to land the spoils with a length to spare.
Bryony Frost and Lucy are a consistent pairing. Frost has ridden around half the stable's runners this season, and the lion's share of winners. She'll be seeing out the season at Sandown where Frodon lines up in the bet365 Gold Cup under top weight, trying to deny Kitty's Light a quickfire and memorable staying chase double after last weekend's Scottish National.
