Lucy Wadham is enjoying a purple patch with her jumpers presently, with three of her four runners since Friday finishing winners.
The stable has barely figured in this nascent summer Jumps season, with a mere 15 runners. But at Fontwell on Friday evening, Another Mystery under Nico de Boinville started a weekend treble in motion in the 2m5f handicap hurdle.
Wadham had teamed up with Tom Cannon the following evening at Uttoxeter for a 112/1 double when Presenting Belle held on by a diminishing 3/4l in a novices handicap chase, followed by For Gina in a mares handicap hurdle 30 minutes later.
The Wadham story began, like so many others, between the flags, when Lucy trained pointers for 10 years alongside a career as a BBC journalist. Her first Rules winner was in a novices hunters chase, appropriately enough, at Huntingdon 33 years ago.
Since then, her niche training operation has regularly clocked some 15-20 winners a year, albeit very few in the top flight. With a win and place ration ranging from 55-60%, her horses are well placed, and it's only quality that's holding back an escalation in her profile.
