Two runners today at Huntingdon.   1.20pm Carry On Sydney runs in a conditional jockeys handicap hurdle over 2m 4f. Syd ran a cracker first time out at Wetherby finishing second, he is a horse that takes a lot of work so he did just need that run.  He then finished 5th at Uttoxeter over 3m on heavy ground, with hindsight I probably shouldn't have run him, even though he gets three mi...

Two runners today.   Taunton 1.05pm Toviere runs in a maiden hurdle over 3m. Toviere ran well on his seasonal reappearance at Stratford in October and then seemed a bit flat at Southwell the following month. The ground was on the soft side that day which might have made a difference or it could be that he wasn't 100%, nothing came to light subsequently but a handful of my horses have run d...

Sorry for the lack of runner's review's, they will be back soon! Two updates...firstly  Puffin Billy. Billy was due to run at Newbury's Hennessy meeting in November, after doing his final piece of work four days before he seemed to tweak some muscles behind.  As you know he is a horse that is delicate to train and needs constant attention from my vet Paul Ferguson, physio Michelle Ha...

Three runners today at Doncaster.   1.30pm Querry Horse runs in a novice chase over 2m 3f. Querry has run respectably in both of his chases this season, he has just been beaten by better horses on the day. He is still an unfurnished horse who can only improve as he strengthens up but he does get allowances for his age and with Jack's 3lb claim he is carrying very little weight which will h...

One runner today at Sandown.   1.15pm Morning Reggie runs in a handicap chase over 2m 4f. Reggie was third at Kempton on his reappearance this season. He was running well until four out and then faded and even though we knew he would improve for the run it seemed a bit disappointing on the face of it, he came back with a very nasty cut on his near hind which may have affected him, who know...

One runner today at Plumpton. 2.50pm Beforeall runs in the Sussex National a handicap chase over 3m 4f.Beefy found the ground too lively on his reappearance at Exeter last month when finishing down the field.He is a horse that has had wind problems, he has had two operations, and he has not been treated too kindly by the handicapper. It's difficult for horses like him Financial Climate, Milg...

Four runners today.   Uttoxeter 12.05pm Amberjam runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m. Amberjam unfortunately had to be withdrawn at the start at Towcester after losing a front shoe on his way to post, the smaller tracks do not have farriers available at the start. Amberjam has been schooling over fences and will go novice chasing after this, I'm aware that he may well need a run to blow awa...

One runner today at Leicester.   2.00pm Milgen Bay runs in a handicap chase over 2m 4f. Milgen found the race at Aintree on his most recent start a little bit too competitive for his liking, he jumped out handy and pinged the fences early on but as he lost his position he also lost interest and eventually pulled up two out.  He came back from that race very full of himself and has be...

Two runners today at Chepstow. 1.25pm a handicap hurdle over 3m Big Occasion and McKenzies Friend both run. Big O has won a Midlands National and been second in the Scottish National before joining me, he is a horse with tons of ability but he has been plagued with injuries for the last three years and has only run once since April 2013.He pulled up on that occasion and has since had another 403...
