  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Catch The Swallows

    Published: Tue, 15/01/2019 07:52
    Last week perfectly illustrated the up's and down's of our wonderful sport. It may be a little clichéd, but as the old saying goes the only certainty is the glorious uncertainty! Having suffered the low of a shock reversal for 1/14 chance Queens Cave (more on that later), only a couple of hours later we were celebrating a first success for one of

    The New Year is now upon us and with the Cheltenham Festival only nine weeks away I continue to be pleased by the form of the stable. Indeed, what better way to say goodbye to 2018 than with a winner at Uttoxeter and hello to 2019 with a double at Exeter on New Year's Day?

I won't be able to spend too much time relaxing however as the horses don't know it is Christmas and

    Last week was a good one for the yard with no fewer than three winners courtesy of Know The Score, Teaser and Umbrigado. With several others also reaching the frame I am pleased with the form of the stable as the Christmas and New Year period approaches. That is obviously good news at any time of the year, but with such a busy programme in the

    Published: Mon, 17/12/2018 07:22
    It was a back and forth first ten minutes with neither side conceding. Finally, the deadlock was broken when Ely gained a penalty in the opposition twenty-two. Man of the match Mitchell Kennett opted for the quick-tap penalty and rumbled his way over the line for a converted try. The Tigers crossed again a few minutes later, the Ely pack mauled the

    I wrote last week's offering on route to London for the Horse Writer's Awards. Gerry Supple and I had a very enjoyable afternoon as guests of Mike Vince and there were some very worthy winners. Our runners at Plumpton that day also kicked off what has been a good week for the stable. Dusky Hercules has improved with each of his three career starts

    Newmarket trainer Nick Littmoden has plenty to celebrate about with his Fakenham winner By Rail and new yard. The front running By Rail seemed to relish the conditions at Fakenham until the last, when headed by Yourholidayisover and looked beaten with only a few yards to go. Yet By Rail rallied under a strong ride by Jack Quinlan to get up by half

    I have always thought that the job of racecourse ground staff was a difficult task but the weather conditions have only heightened my admiration for the teams who work so hard to produce decent jumping ground. On the whole they do an outstanding job, although unfortunately with a mixed bag of weather across the country the ground continues to be

  • David Pipe National Hunt Trainer's Weekly Diary For Ely, Umbrigado Impresses

    Published: Tue, 20/11/2018 10:23
    Once again, the lack of any significant rain continues to frustrate and meant that we had comparatively few runners last week, primarily at Cheltenham's November meeting where we have traditionally been so strong in the past. Of course, it is disappointing to leave that fixture without a winner but there were some decent performances, not least the
