Ed has held a trainer’s licence since October 2010 and is now in his fifth season at Kingsdown Stables. With a growing and improving team of horses as well as staff.

Ed and his team are looking forward to the season ahead with some exciting prospects. He is still in search of that elusive Group 1 winner having hit the crossbar a number of times so fingers crossed this could be team EWR’s year.



Came From The Dark (Ire)

2016 grey gelding by Dark Angel (Ire) ex Silver Shoon (Ire) (Fasliyev (USA))

P K Siu

Came From The Dark is an exciting sprinter for the season. His performance in September at Haydock over 5 furlongs would indicate there is a big pot in him this season.

Dreamloper (Ire)

2017 bay filly by Lope De Vega (Ire) ex Livia’s Dream (Ire) (Teofilo (Ire))

J Fill

Dreamloper was a very progressive filly last season. Her performance at Ascot last year was an indication that she is going to be a really exciting filly this season.

Glenartney (GB)

2018 bay filly by Le Havre (Ire) ex Willoughby (Ire) (Oasis Dream (GB))

Nat Rothschild

Glenartney won on her second start at the end of October at Newmarket last year over 7 furlongs on very heavy ground. She showed a good attitude and overcame her inexperience to win. She holds some big race entries and looks to be a talented filly.

Matthew Flinders (GB)

2017 bay gelding by Siyouni (Fr) ex Cascata (Ire) (Montjeu (Ire))

S Stuckey

Matthew Flinders has now been gelded and the pick of his form last year was very good. We learnt a lot about him last time at York and I think there is a very good race in him over a mile this season.

Mountain Peak (GB)

2015 bay gelding by Swiss Spirit (GB) ex Nolas Lolly (Ire) (Lomitas (GB))

Ebury Racing

Mountain Peak won two races last year and improved 10lbs in the handicap. He is a very likeable type and he is going to be competitive in all the good sprint handicaps this year.

Navegaon Gate (GB)

2018 bay colt by Frankel (GB) ex Cascata (Ire) (Montjeu (Ire))

S Stuckey

Navegaon Gate is an extremely impressive looking son of Frankel and displayed lots of promise when running very green at Nottingham first time out in November last year. He looks like he is going to be a very smart horse when stepping up in trip. 

Parachute (GB)

2018 chesnut colt by Sea The Stars (Ire) ex Fly (GB) (Pastoral Pursuits (GB))

Highclere Racing, T Vestey & P Silver

Parachute improved in every start last season and when stepping up to a mile and a quarter on his last start, he won a strong Novice with both the second and third subsequently winning. He took a little while last season for the penny to drop and he is a horse we are really looking forward to getting on the track now he is more streetwise.

Popmaster (Ire)

2018 grey colt by Gutaifan (Ire) ex Best New Show (Ire) (Clodovil (Ire))

Laurence Bellman

Popmaster won both of his only starts at the end of last year with two impressive performances at Kempton. On the second occasion, he came from an unpromising position and did very well to win under his penalty. He had his third run in March this year and ran well to finish third against tough competition, still showing signs of greenness, so he is an exciting horse going into the season.

Random Harvest (Ire)

2018 bay filly by War Front (USA) ex Seta (GB) (Pivotal (GB))

Lady Bamford

Random Harvest won very impressively on her only start at Yarmouth over a mile. She holds some big entries going forward and is so far very unexposed so could be anything.

Starman (GB)

2017 bay colt by Dutch Art (GB) ex Northern Star (Ire) (Montjeu (Ire))

David Ward

Starman is rated 113 and gave a breathtaking performance at York last September beating Dakota Gold. He was extremely progressive last season and has done well over the winter. He is a very exciting prospect.
