13th April - Southwell
Three runners today at Southwell
Dj Pete runs in the bumper, He's a lovely type who has done everything nicely at home. Pete is a very laid back character with a lovely attitude as you know most of my bumper horses do come on for the run so this is very much a look and learn process. Alfie Jordan claims 10Ib, the rteason ive put Alfie on him as he knows him inside out as he rides him everyday.
Guerlan De Vaux runs in the Handicap hurdle. We were really disappointed with his last run at Newbury but 24 hrs later a huge abscess appeared beneath his jaw and burst out. I'm sure that was the reason he ran so poorly, he's a lovely big horse who's future lies over fences.
Hvanella runs in the mares Novice Hurdle, She has been going well at home and like Guerlan her future lies over fences. Unfortunatley she just seemsa to think shes quicker than she is so today is about settling and I think that will come with the more racing she does.
