Three runners today. Newton Abbot 4.45pm Minella On Line runs in a handicap chase over 3m 1f.Nelly was due to run at Fakenham on Easter Monday but on arrival at the course he was found to have banged a hind joint in transit and wasn’t 100% sound, so was withdrawn.It was a minor issue which didn’t take long to clear up but he does swim so he didn’t miss any exercise. Nelly is ...

Three runners tomorrow. Kempton 1.45pm West Coast Flyer runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.West Coast Flyer had decent form on the flat before joining me, he has been very natural and professional about his schooling from day one. This is a completely different ball game for him but I’ve no reason to think he won’t deal with it, he seems to like his jumping and more importantly he...

Yesterday was annoying as the forecast rain didn’t arrive until immediately after Piton Pete race had finished.As I said before he ran the trip and track were too sharp for him on good ground but he gained some more valuable jumping experience and he flew at the finish to claim fourth, he’s fine post race.He will now be let down ready to go on his holidays and hopefully next winter he ...

Three runners tonight at Southwell. 5.50pm Cervaro Mix runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.With only three declarations Alan has the best form on offer so is a very short priced favourite.Alan was way too keen last time out at Ludlow and didn’t get home, he just needed to get the gas out of him, he was very fresh off the back of a mid season break. Alan is an easy horse to deal with though h...

Manning Estate runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m.Flash ran well enough in his first attempt at a handicap last time out at Fontwell. They went no gallop and off top weight he couldn’t just finish with a sprint.That was a step up in trip and today he’s running over three furlongs further for the first time.Lash and I felt he got the trip perfectly well last time out and we are con...

Working Class runs in the Handicap Hurdle over 2 miles. He won there earlier on in the season and has been pretty consistent. He's a genuine little horse who will run his race.

One runner today at Cheltenham. 2.40pm Got Away runs in a handicap chase over 2m 4f.Gloria has managed to achieve some consistency in her last three runs, at last. She is a mare with plenty of ability and there have been circumstances surrounding her failures, to begin with it was her scant regard for fences followed by feet issues early this season. Gloria would ideally prefer softer ground ...

Two runners today at Warwick. 3.15pm Sammy Bill runs in a novice hurdle over 2m.Bill ran well enough on his first outing for us in January before disappointing at Huntingdon last month.He was pretty keen on both occasions but definitely more so last time therefore he didn’t finish his race.Bill will be ridden with much more restraint this time to get him to settle, he is a thorough galloper...

One runner today at Chepstow. 4.40pm Cilaos Glacé runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m.Cilaos won very nicely at Fontwell last time out. Cilaos had shown plenty of promise in his previous runs but due to the fact he was so keen in his races we had not been able to ride him very close to the pace, so he’d been staying on well from out of his ground.Cilaos has been a work in progress a...
