Bloom is star of meeting

Wymondham trainer Nibby Bloom was the star of an outstanding Dunston Harriers meeting at Ampton on Sunday, saddling two winners and a second from three runners.

Wymondham trainer Nibby Bloom was the star of an outstanding Dunston Harriers meeting at Ampton on Sunday, saddling two winners and a second from three runners.

First of the Bloom brace was Go North, who seems a horse with a real future following his comfortable five length defeat of The Camerengo in the Intermediate Race.

This was Go North's British debut, having won twice in Irish points, and he certainly looks well worth the 20,000 guineas Bloom forked out for him on behalf of another Wymondham resident, Sandra Fryer, at the Doncaster Sales.

Bloom then sent out Caveman to rout his six rivals by no less than 20 lengths in the Men's Open.

Jumping with great speed under jockey George Greenock, from Gateley, Caveman had the contest sewn up with almost a mile to run. He may have another run in a point before targeting a hunter chase at a stiff track such as Towcester.

A Bloom treble was foiled in the Maiden Race when his representative Bridgham found Grey Shark two lengths too strong. Grey Shark had been beaten in all 25 career starts before yesterday's race. He was partnered by Kelly Smith, who trains him at Timworth.
