Axom is delighted to offer 1/20th shares in Captain Simon, a six-year-old gelding who has won both a point-to-point and a bumper. Captain Simon showed an excellent attitude to land his bumper at Taunton in April and he will be aimed at novice hurdles this season. He is in training with Dan Skelton at his impressive Lodge Hill Stables in Warwickshire and he should be ready to run in October. Captain Simon has proved to be very straightforward in training and Dan has been impressed with his determined and competitive attitude. Captain Simon is due to go handicap hurdling over a longer distance after a few runs over hurdles in the autumn.

Hurdle rating: 102
Note: On 17 January 2018, there were 3,867 horses with an official BHA hurdle rating, the lowest being 40 and the highest 169. The median average is currently 107.

“Captain Simon loves his work and takes everything in his stride. He was a good winner of his point-to-point and got the job done really well at Taunton to win his bumper. He had a nice break after that win and schools well and we are looking forward to running him in handicap hurdles.” Dan Skelton
