Camillas Wish & Becky Smith come home easy winners at Cartmel

Bought out of Jim Dreaper's yard after winning a Down Royal Hunter Chase on 1st May, this 8 year old daughter of Presenting has rattled off 3 straight wins for LRS over hurdles at Fakenham & Uttoxeter as well as a facile chase success at Cartmel on 30th June where Becky, who works for Micky Hammond, was having only her third ride over the larger obstacles. The Racing Post stated ' CW won her 4th consecutive race here back over fences from an exploitable mark with a bold jumping display. She bolted up in truth, coming further & further clear on the lengthy run-in.'

On dismounting at the Cumbrian track the 30 year old said ' Camillas Wish & I have struck up a good bond & she seems to like being ridden by lady riders as Lisa O'Neill won on her in Ireland. She has the heart of a lion.'
