Hurdles plan for About Carlo
Fresh from winning his first race on the level in over a year Eve Johnson Houghton is considering sending What About Carlo over hurdles.
What About Carlo has already schooled over hurdles
The five-year-old won off a mark of 95 at Newbury on Saturday and if he can translate his form to the jumping game he would be a smart prospect.
Having already schooled under the watchful eye of Henrietta Knight, a race at the Hennessy meeting is on the agenda.
"We are really pleased with him and he is a stable star. He enjoys life and is very spoilt at home but he always repays us in the end," said Johnson Houghton.
"He schooled over hurdles with Henrietta Knight and is ready to go. She tells me she is very pleased with him.
"He might easily go for a novice hurdle back here at the bet365 Festival meeting and I should think that we might start him off over two miles.
"If he doesn't like hurdling, we have lost nothing but, if he loves it, then we will do it because he really needs cut in the ground.
"We could be a spring and autumn horse on the Flat, a winter horse over hurdles and we could give him the summer off."
