Evan Williams was the trainer to follow at Newton Abbot, landing a treble with Frankie Faulkner and Honey I’m Good ridden by his daughter Isabel and Heronord, who hit the target at the 24th attempt in the hands of Adam Wedge.
It’s not often that racecourses see soft ground in the middle of July but, if the current spell of rain continues, the runners at Newton Abbot on Monday could encounter very different conditions to those they have experienced so far this season.
Fortunate Fred, the choice from three entries for Lambourn trainer Jamie Snowden, and Frankie Faulkner, third to Songo over a shorter trip here last month, could fight out the finish in the opening Class 3 Visit attheraces.com Maiden Hurdle. Fortunate Fred has been placed on soft ground and Frankie Faulkner won his second point-to-point on good to soft going, so both should handle the conditions.
