Baraconti Mrs Ruth Carr
He ran on Monday 6th December 2010
This 3 year old gelding ran at Southwell, in a class 6 handicap over 1m, where he was beaten by around 10 lengths off a mark of 52. Formerly with Richard Fahey, he was given a mark of 70 in his 1st handicap at Haydock over 1m 2f. Having been well beaten in all his starts for Fahey, he was switched to this shrewd yard, where Ruth Carr has a good record in freshening up horses, who have dropped significantly in the handicap, so Baraconti is of interest now as he is 18lbs lower. Unfortunately, the stable appears to be badly out of form, so it may be wise to wait for the stable to send out some winners before taking a chance with this one! He is relatively lightly raced and despite not having won a race, he may be one to watch closely over the next few weeks particularly if the stable starts firing, as he is likely to be a big price!

Lobby Ludd Phillip Hobbs
He ran on Sunday 5th December 2010
He was dropped in trip, having been much too keen in a decent contest at Chepstow over 2m 4f.

2nd December 2010

He ran on Thursday, 25th November 2010
Turning for home in this 2m 1/2f (class 5) bumper at Newbury, he had only 1 horse behind! The race was won by the once raced, Paul Nicholls trained, Balding Banker, who prevailed by 10 lengths, however, this was a very decent debut run from Fourofakind who stayed on, all the way to the line, finishing 3rd/9, a further 9 lengths behind the runner-up having been given what appeared to be a gentle, educational, introduction to the racecourse.
