One runner today at Chepstow. 5.20pm Donladd runs in a bumper over 2m 1f.Donladd ran perfectly respectably first time out at Bangor when finishing fifth.He looked green on that occasion but as you know there is always plenty of improvement in my bumper horses, they are not trained to the minute and they are not given a hard time. If young horses have a hard time first time out (or in their fir...

One runner today at Exeter. 2.40pm Makety runs in a mares novice hurdle over 2m 1f.Makety ran better than her form suggests at Hereford on her first outing for us after winning a point to point bumper over 2m the previous spring.Because she had won a bumper over 2m I presumed she would want further than 2m over hurdles, and I hold my hands up ...I was wrong. Makety travelled really nicely la...

One runner today at Huntingdon. 3.25pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m.Cilaos is a big good looking horse who has been very keen early on in his races, we’ve had to teach him to switch off, so at times he has been running on well from uncompromising positions. Cilaos works really nicely at home but again he has to be ridden with restraint otherwise he is very strong...

Four runners today. Doncaster. 2.15pm What’s Occurring runs in an EBF novice hurdle over 2m 3f, this is a qualifying race for the EBF final and the first four home will be eligible to be entered in the final at Sandown on March 9th. Gavin won his first two races this season and then ran creditably in defeat in his second two outings.The most pleasing thing about his recent defeat at Leice...

Three runners tomorrow at Huntingdon. 2.00pm Broughton’s Rhythm runs in a handicap chase over 2m.Broughton’s is a consistent if rather frustrating horse who deserves to get his head in front.Broughton’s was unlucky at Lingfield in November when holding every chance going to the last, the eventual winner leant on him causing him to lose concentration and unseat Aidan, he’s ...

Five runners today. Sandown.12.50pm Working Class runs in a conditional jockeys handicap hurdle over 2m.Working Class has been a consistent horse this season, he was awarded a race at Fakenham recently but he deserved a bit of luck because he’d not had much until that point.Working Class, as I’ve said before, has been a work in progress in that he has been very strong in his races, Ha...

Three runners today. Leicester.2.50pm Got Away runs in a mares handicap chase over 2m 4f.Gloria has had a torrid time since winning a listed chase here just over a year ago, she looked good on that occasion but has only completed the course once subsequently. Apart from jumping issues, brought on by a lack of concentration, she had a lung infection and this season she’s suffered with feet ...

Thankfully racing goes ahead again tomorrow after six days of disruption and plenty of speculation. The BHA and their veterinary panel have acted sensibly and efficiently.They had no option but to stop racing until the extent of the equine flu bug had been correctly established based upon the considerable evidence collated.Many people have been been working around the clock to resolve this issue,...

One runner today at Sandown. 1.50pm Rayvin Black runs in a listed hurdle race over 2m. Rayvin has picked up lots of prize money in these type of events over the years and even won a Kingwell when the favourite underperformed. He loves small field races where he can dominate and hopefully the ground will be horrible after the snow and frost of the last few days, it can never be too soft for ...

Two runners today at Lingfield. 3.15pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m.Cilaos was a bit disappointing last time out having shown promise in his first two runs. That was over 3f further so it could just be that he didn’t get home even though he shapes like he would appreciate further.Cilaos has been and still is a work in progress, he can be very strong in his work...
