Yesterday at Lingfield two horses from the yard acquitted themselves well on the track under rides from Cieren Fallon. Hoornblower made his racecourse debut over a mile and he ran a fine race to finish very close up in third after having been cut up twice in the finishing straight, This was a very good first outing, and with a clearer run at the front two he would have possibly won, as Cieren finished with plenty of horse only two lengths back. This augurs really well for Hoornblower's racing prospects next year - another one of Chris van Hoorn's string showing great promise for next season. Caribou stepped up to a mile and a quarter for the first time in what looked like a very competitive race, although one without a front runner to set a pace. Cieren therefore had to send Caribou forward and he certainly got the longer trip very well, but he did not relish the tightness of the left handed track so he hung a little as race leader and did not rail well throughout. In the home straight he was passed by three but he finished off his race very well to be a close fourth home. The wider sweep of Kempton going the other way round should suit him much better next time, and he has a good chance of returning to winning form if he can find a race there soon.
