No No Maestro - he is still weak, Ludlow didn’t suit him as he will be a stayer once he’s physically improved but I wanted slightly better ground for him.
I’ll get some experience into him this season and hope he strengthens up enough next summer to kick on with.
He’ll be ok.
Got Away - Leighton was happy with her until half a mile from home when she faded quickly, she had jumped and galloped with enthusiasm until that point.
She has gone to Ben Brain today to assess her wind, there’s clearly something not right.
Hopefully there is a problem that can be rectified.
Papagana - ran a blinder, for her breeding cv to be third in a grade one is very, very good.
Papa got outpaced on the worst bit of ground, coming out of Swinley Bottom, before galloping on resolutely from the last flight and if she’d really winged the second last she most likely would have been second.
I’ll probably revert to taking on her own sex for now but she’s lost nothing in defeat.
