Seaston is absolutely fine post race, I’m slightly annoyed with him for missing the break the way he did, he looked like he was only just broken in...broncing away from the start....what a plonker.
He then traveled nicely into the race before bring brought down.
I wasn’t going to run him again but I hate to finish on that note.
I’ll school him next week and if we get some decent ground he can have another run before going out for the summer.

One runner today at Plumpton.

3.15pm The Fresh Prince runs in a handicap chase over 2m 3f.
Prince didn’t appear to get home over three miles last time out at Southwell, he won a point to point before I bought him and we always thought he would get the trip.
Prince is a horse that shows a tremendous amount of speed at home but on a racecourse he has been largely disappointing, he is by Robin Des Pres and a lot of them are bridle horses, they travel well into a race and then find very little.
I think Prince is better competing in lower grade races off a big weight than running in better class races with a low weight, he’s a giant among mice.

Prince has dropped back down to a good mark again and he will appreciate a small field, I think he prefers better ground but if they do get rain at Plumpton he should handle conditions.

Prince is an extremely good looking horse with a lot of presence, he works and schools exceptionally well at home, hence the frustration that he doesn’t transfer it to a racecourse.

He will be ridden by Conor Shoemark.

Prince is looked after and will be led up by Elle Lloyd, he is ridden at home by Josh Apiafi.
