Buster Thomas has been a shade unlucky in his runs so far this season, and the theme continued at Doncaster this afternoon when he narrowly avoided disaster at the first fence with the favourite, Powerful Symbol, falling and hampering several runners. Buster Thomas did very well to stay on his feet and after being brought back into the race under a sympathetic Nick Scholfield ride, he soon found himself in contention rounding the home turn. Buster Thomas jumped very well on the whole and despite rallying, he could not make significant headway from two out and he stayed on at the same pace to finish fifth. This was a very creditable performance from Buster Thomas, especially considering the first fence drama, and it will be interesting to see him running on decent ground this Spring, as he looks to be a horse with potential.

Irving ran a fine race at Newcastle on Saturday, when finishing a game second in the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle under Sean Bowen. Irving, twice a winner of the Fighting Fifth, was facing a tough assignment with the presence of Champion Hurdler Buveur D'Air lining up, but Axom LXIX's son of Singspiel jumped and travelled well and stayed on strongly after jumping the last to take second. Trainer Paul Nicholls was delighted and this was a fine return to the track for Irving.

Dark Mahler won on his chasing debut on Thursday 16 November at Ludlow, landing the first win of his career so far. Dark Mahler was third in a point-to-point in January 2016 and was bought by Axom to go hurdling. He was pulled up on his hurdling debut in December 2016, in a race where he did not get any luck, before running with promise in two subsequent starts in January and April 2017. Dark Mahler was always bought with chasing in mind, so it was great to see him get off to the best possible start and give his owners a wonderful day out.

Abidjan landed the feature race at Warwick yesterday with a very impressive display under Harry Skelton. Abidjan, now a seven-year-old, has now won six races for his Axom L owners and there was plenty of support for him at Warwick.

Fidux bounced back to form at Sandown last Saturday, to finish third in a hot handicap for juvenile hurdlers. Fidux did really well to get involved in the finish, as he endured a terrible run through the race and got into all sorts of trouble. When he made a bad mistake down the back straight it looked like it might be game over, but he started to make ground turning for home and ran on really well up the hill. His previous run at the Cheltenham Festival in March didn't go to plan as he ran far too freely up in front, but this was much more like it and Fidux now heads off on his summer break. Vibrato Valtat ran on the same card, but never really looked like getting involved. He too is likely to head off on holiday shortly. The 2016/17 Jumps season was another fantastic one for Axom and its owners, with some truly memorable performances from the horses. High Secret's emergence as a leading hurdler after a year on the sidelines was a great story, as was Irving's hard-fought second win, in the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle. Ziga Boy became the first horse in the 70 year history of the Great Yorkshire Chase to win the race twice, while the consistent Shotgun Paddy continued to give his owners plenty of fun. Buster Thomas looks a nice prospect for Emma Lavelle, while Fidux and the previously mentioned Ziga Boy highlighted the skills of Alan King.

High Secret landed his second win of the year on 20 March at Taunton, in a novices' hurdle over 2m½f. High Secret jumped off in the middle of the pack under Sam Twiston-Davies and he travelled well off a very slow pace. High Secret took a narrow lead coming to the last, but landed on all fours. He kept on very well under hands and heels to beat the second favourite, Boagrius (who received 9lbs), by half a length at odds of 4/5. The slow pace would not have allowed him to use his stamina, and also his jumping was cumbersome, due to a lack of momentum caused by the slow pace. Sam did not look in trouble at any stage of the race, and both he and Paul Nicholls were delighted with the win.

Wednesday 8 March, 2017
Six days is still a long time in horseracing terms, but all being well, Lifeboat Mona will line up in the Grade 1 David Nicholson Mares' hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival next Tuesday. Lifeboat Mona, who goes well fresh, has had just two runs this season; her last being at Sandown in early January. It will be fascinating to see how she copes with this step-up in class, but she fully deserves her place in the field and we wish her and her owners a huge amount of luck. Paul Nicholls was very happy with Lifeboat Mona's piece of work on Saturday morning, so it is a case of all systems go. Also next week, Fidux is a likely runner in the Grade 3 Fred Winter Hurdle on Wednesday and Lac Fontana could run on either Wednesday or Friday. It is a great honour to have three likely runners next week and, with lots of lovely young horses at home too, our string looks in great shape.
