We were immediately back among the winners once racing resumed on Tuesday after ten days lost during the big freeze.
Captain Teague won his bumper tidily at Plumpton and a day later Lallylag and Holetown Hero won back to back races over hurdles at Taunton.
On Thursday Complete Unknown took our score for the season to 86 with a sparkling victory on his debut over fences in a competitive novice handicap Chase at Ffos Las. He was always going to be a chaser and has an exciting future.
The cold snap has probably ended my hopes of reaching a century of winners by the end of December. It was frustrating that so many decent opportunities at Cheltenham, Ascot and elsewhere were scuppered by freezing temperatures.
But we continue to maintain our strike record of 33% and we enter the holiday period with plenty of live chances at Kempton, Chepstow and Wincanton led by our trio in the King George V1 Chase.
