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.
