Chris Hughes schooling

Chris Hughes schools Battle

November 19, 2018 News

Chris Hughes, our new Coral Champions Club Ambassador, was at Colin Tizzard’s Venn Farm on Saturday morning to school Battle Of Ideas over jumps.

Chris showed a natural talent in the saddle as he fine-tuned Battle’s jumping technique in preparation for his next race at Chepstow on Wednesday. The pair looked remarkably in-sync and Chris, who admitted he hadn’t schooled horses in some time, looked a complete natural in the saddle. It’s clear from the video below that Chris has a soft spot for Battle and is looking forward to seeing him run on Wednesday.

Battle Of Ideas is set to make his second start over fences at Chepstow having made a very pleasing start to his chasing career at Kempton. Chris Hughes will be in attendance and you and a friend could be joining him for his Coral Champions Club hosting debut. Four lucky Coral Champions Club members and their guest will win a chance to experience what racehorse ownership feels like and if you’d like to be one of them, then enter our competition here.
