Two runners today at Towcester. 3.00pm Financial Climate runs in a handicap chase over 3m.Financial has been a fun horse for his owners and until this season has hardly run a bad race even though he hasn't had much respite from the handicapper, as I've said before it's difficult for these type of horses you have to keep running them to get them back to a winnable mark again but they can lose conf...

One runner tonight at Aintree. 6.40pm Querry Horse runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m 4f.Querry is a backward weak type of horse that has not stopped growing since he arrived with me eighteen months ago. He has won two races for me and one in France before arriving at Rhonehurst, this is a testament to his ability because he is still very unfurnished. Querry pulled up last time out in fi...

Two runners today. Kempton 3.35pm Toviere runs in a novice handicap hurdle over 2m 5f.Toviere ran well in defeat at Ascot on his most recent run, I've seen him jump better but he did run to the line which he hasn't always done in his races.Toviere has been a consistent horse without winning, his pedigree suggested he would be a stayer but when we stepped him up to three miles at Taunton he di...

One runner today at Fakenham 4.10pm Versifier runs in a mares handicap hurdle over 2m 4f.Versifier hasn't run since she finished last of four on her handicap debut at Doncaster. She was declared on good ground and it poured with rain all day, it was horrible ground but because there were only four runners I let her take her chance, she hated it so I would draw a line through that run.Versifi...

Two runners today at Uttoxeter. 4.30pm Toberdowney runs in a mares handicap hurdle over 3m.Toberdowney ran well in a good mares final at Haydock on her last run, the trip was on the short side for her on the ground, she got done for a bit of toe before staying on, I was happy with her.This is her first attempt at this trip but I have no reason to think she won't get it, she handles any ground but...

One runner today at Ayr. 1.40pm Minella On Line runs in a novice handicap chase over 3m.Minella has won his two completed starts for me, both at Plumpton. He unseated at Lingfield on his only other run.Minella is a horse with huge potential but he is bloody annoying with his jumping, he schools so well at home but is sloppy on a racecourse, he tends to jump to the left and just doesn't get h...

Firstly, thankfully The Organist is fine post race. She was desperately unlucky and was very fortunate to keep her feet before bravely battling back to get fourth place.  These things happen in the heat of battle and Davy Russell picked up a five day ban for careless riding, it's been dealt with and we move on. Our luck has to change at some stage.   Three runners today at Fontwell....

One runner today at Fakenham. 3.25pm Serpico runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m.Serpico is a horse with plenty of ability but he has yet to show it on a racecourse, he has always schooled and worked nicely at home. He is by Scorpion and I've had plenty of them, they are good looking horses that are flash at home but the majority don't seem to have the heart for a battle, apart from Might Bite...
