Richard Hannon UnibetUnibet ambassador Richard Hannon discusses his season so far, along with updates on some of his star performers below.


Our horses continue to run well and it’s fair to say we’ve had a great season so far. Sadly no Group One as yet but King Of Change, who was second in the Guineas. is back in full work and doing really well. There are a couple of options for him but we may go to Newbury in a couple of weeks and then we can decide about having a look at the QEII.

Threat has come out of the Gimcrack in fine form and it was great to see him get his head back in front. I think we’ll step him up to seven furlongs now which brings the Dewhurst into the equation.

Mums Tipple is the horse everyone seems to be talking about and on what he did at York, I’m not surprised really. He’d be a more relaxed horse than Threat and takes everything in his stride which makes my job much easier. I’d like to try and keep them both apart but they’re owned by different people so it’s not set in stone that they won’t meet each other before the Guineas next year – assuming they both get there in one piece! Realistically we’re looking at something like the Mill Reef for Mums Tipple’s next run and then we can make a plan after that.

Cloak Of Spirits has a great temperament and looked ultra impressive at Ascot on her only start and is a filly we think an awful lot of. She’ll probably run in the G2 May Hill at Doncaster next week and then all being well go to Newmarket for the G1 Fillies’ Mile. I was pleased to see Dark Lady win at Salisbury yesterday as she deserved that after some good efforts this season. She doesn’t do anything impressively but has a lot of talent and she will now go to Newmarket for the G1 Cheveley Park Stakes.
