Stars shine in November
The winter jumps season has gone into top gear over the last couple of weeks of November and Highflyer buys have been to the fore once again. Pride of place goes to Bristol De Mai who put up a splendid display to win his third Betfair Chase at Haydock, taking his career earnings to £800,000. The same owners, Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, have also won Graded events recently with the likes of Caribean Boy (Gr 2 novices chase at Newbury), Sceau Royal (Gr 2 Elite Hurdle at Wincanton) and their Cheltenham Festival winner Concertista (Gr 2 hurdle at Fairyhouse). Other Highflyer purchases to have won well this month include Gr 3 Ladbroke Trophy Chase winner Cloth Cap (€46,000 store purchase by David Minton for owner Trevor Hemmings), GA Law (Gr 2 Rising Stars Novices Chase) and these Listed scorers for Nicky Henderson, Floressa, On The Blindside and Pym.
