Posh Trish

Paul Nicholls has always maintained that Posh Trish is a star steeplechaser in the making but delayed her fencing debut because her progress over hurdles last season was so marked. She won the Listed Mares' Hurdle at Newbury, making all the running and putting a quality field to the sword. She followed up with a facile victory at Wincanton on Boxing Day, again making all and running out a very convincing winner. She won that race without over exerting herself which persuaded Paul Nicholls to send her to Taunton for a listed Mares contest, where once again she dominated and fought off a strong challenge about two furlongs from home after which she pulled clear to finish strongly. She had a break before running at the Cheltenham Festival in the Dawn Run Mares’s race and looked certain to be competitive. She was a bit outpaced and made her only mistake at the last to finish eighth. This was a highly competitive contest in which our mare performed with great credit.

Posh Trish is now ready for a first season of chasing and made her debut over the larger obstacles at Chepstow.  Facing two very strong opponents in the Listed hurdles winner Jarveys Plate and the two-time Grade 1-winning novice hurdle Reserve Tank, Posh Trish was a little too fresh and well for her first run of the season, yet she jumped beautifully and despite taking a keen hold in the early stages she kept on well to finish a close and highly-competitive third.  She is now likely to race back against mares for her next start and there are plenty more races to be won with her.
