04 Jan AMBIENT finishes 5th at Chelmsford City
After a mild Autumn and Christmas, it certainly felt as if Winter had arrived last night at Chelmsford City although it did not deter hardy members from turning out to watch our first runner of 2019.
AMBIENT looked well and took the parade ring in his stride and Jane’s instructions to our Jockey John Egan were to keep him tucked in and handy before making his move.
AMBIENT was a little slow coming out of the stalls but our jockey kept him in midfield and tucked in as instructed. They came off the final bend and John asked him to quicken, which he did, but they were unable to get past the leaders and they finished 5th only 3½ lengths from the winner SCOFFLAW.
Jane said that she would like to get AMBIENT out again before the end of the month and will have a look at the fixture lists.
