One runner today at Cheltenham. 3.35pm Captain Peacock runs in a grade 2 novice hurdle over 2m 5f. Peacock won easily twice at Bangor before just being touched off at Worcester in a Qualifier for a 30k final. He returned there for the final and he was making good headway four out when making a shuddering mistake from which he didn’t recover. Peacock loves good ground and having won two ...

One runner today at Exeter. 1.00pm Shaughnessy runs in a novice hurdle over 2m 5f.Shaun won a bumper on his last run after finishing second twice previously, I don’t normally run horses in three bumpers but we felt he was a horse that would improve with racing as he was still such a big baby.Shaun had to make the running when he won and Towcester is a very stiff track so it was a brave perf...

Five runners today. Hereford.1pm Peur De Rien runs in novice handicap hurdle over 2m 3f.Peur De Rien or Roger has only had four races to date, the ground last winter was largely unsuitable for him, he had a more promising run at Huntingdon on his penultimate start on better ground, he jumped and traveled well on that occasion and wasn’t beaten far. He’s a very tall horse, 17hh, and...

Four runners today. Carlisle.1.30pm Euxton Lane runs in a novice chase over 2m 4f.Euxton took a couple of attempts to get going over hurdles last season before winning nicely at Fontwell and Newbury. He ran well enough at Aintree in a very good novice on his last outing but was probably not quite man enough for a race like that at the time. Euxton is a huge horse that has taken plenty of ...

Two runners today at Newbury. 1.50pm Book Of Gold runs in a beginners chase over 2m 6f.Book has been a fairly consistent performer to date until his last two runs last season but I think he was just feeling the effects of several races on his favoured heavy ground by then.Book is a one paced horse that has always looked as if he would make a better chaser than hurdler. This is a competitive ra...

Two runners today at Chepstow. 1.25pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a maiden hurdle over 2m.Cilaos was sent to me by Heart Of The South Racing because of my equine pool, he had encountered problems in training previously so they wanted to give him every chance.I think he may just have been suffering from growing pains though because we have not had one single day of worry with him. Cilaos was ve...

 What’s Occurring runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.Gavin won here at the last meeting over this trip and carries a 6lb penalty today.Gavin traveled and jumped nicely on that occasion,he just had to be shaken up going to the last before pulling away again on the run in. He won’t improve fitness wise for that run but he will be sharper for the whole experience. He’s been ...

One runner today at Ascot. 4.05pm Manning Estate runs in a bumper over 2m.Flash ran well on his only outing to date, a bumper at Fontwell. He traveled nicely during the race before running very green in the latter stages, as you know there is always a lot of improvement in my youngsters and I don’t like them knocked about.Flash has done plenty of schooling and he jumps well, I’m ...

One runner today at Uttoxeter. 3.15pm Querry Horse runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m.Querry has been largely disappointing after a promising start when he first arrived from France. He has had a few issues along the way, he had a wind operation early last season and the ground wasn’t right for him for most of the winter. Querry is a confidence horse and he, like a lot of mine, wasn&...
