We have just acquired Royal Village in a private sale from the Ian Williams yard. He is a 140 rated chaser and ran at he Cheltenham festival last season.
He made a winning start to his career over fences when forcing a dead-heat at Market Rasen. He backed that up with a 3rd in handicap company at Stratford and filled the same position back at Stratford. After running 4th at Perth, he took the valuable Prelude Chase at Market Rasen. After fair runs at Ascot and Sandown, he got his head back in front at Uttoxeter he then finished 2nd in the valuable Summer Plate at Market Rasen before putting up a career best to win at Southwell. He next ran a strong 2nd in the Prelude Chase at Market Rasen.
He has shown his best form on decent ground and we feel there maybe even more to come from this good looking son of Scorpion as he still looks progressive.
