Westerner Head Shot

Daughter Of Westerner Follows Up In Style

Somespring Special (5m Westerner - Natural Spring, by Generous) followed up on last month’s impressive success when justifying favouritism in the Novices’ Hurdle at Fontwell.

A clear winner over course and distance last month, the Anthony Honeyball-trained mare was sent off favourite against geldings on Thursday. Making all under Ben Godfreym she was shaken up after the second last and was pushed out to score by four and a quarter lengths. The front pair finished 16 lengths clear of the field.

Owned by the Yeo Racing Partnership, Somespring Special was previously trained by Max Young, for whom she finished second on debut.
