Le Coeur Net (AJ Honeyball)

Le Coeur Net ran 6 times last season finishing 3rd at Ffos Las, 2nd twice (Plumpton and Newbury) before winning in a thrilling finish at Wincanton on Boxing Day, ridden by Ben Godfrey. He has now attained a mark of 115 which opens up the opportunity to aim a bit higher. 

He will be targeted at 2m to 2m4f handicap chases on soft or heavy ground

Lamanver Bel Ami (Jack Barber)

Lamanver Bel Ami ran twice in the 18/19 season finishing 4th and 5th in two bumpers. In his first run over hurdles last season he ran very free at Plumpton; he then ran at Exeter in early December, where he settled much better, and finally at Taunton where he ran a nice race. We would have given him at least one or possibly two more runs if the season hadn't been curtailed as he will handle good going.

His current mark is 99 and we will look at the opportunity to step him up to chasing next season, which Jack is confident will bring the best out in him.

Lily The Pink (AJ Honeyball)

Lily the Pink is a 5 year old mare by Malinas out of the same dam as Midnight Callisto (trained by AJH and a winner already). She has been placed in bumpers and also in her first run over hurdles. 

Lily ran a lovely race to win at Exeter on January 21st leading from virtually start to finish under Rex Dingle - another great day out for the Wessex Racing Club. Her next run at Wincanton was another very nice run finishing second. We will look to run her over larger obstacles next season. Her rating is 107.
