Brayhill came over from Ireland after a good second to Rockstar Ronnie in Point-to-points (who has since won twice for Dan Skelton) and had two wins under his belt with Graham McKeever (where we also sourced Charmant). He started off in a Bumper at Wetherby but couldn’t pick up (our horses were subsequently found to have a mineral imbalance) and was given a month to get back on track again. He schooled brilliantly at home with Rachael McDonald and she couldn’t pull him up he loved it so much. So she went to Carlisle with confidence high over 2m 3f and won nicely by 7 ½ lengths and this was Rachael’s last win before retiring. He will stay further and remains a novice until the end of November and after that he is then likely to go Novice Chasing.
