26th January - Fontwell
Two runners today at Fontwell.
Wheesht had a cauterisation of her soft palate after a disappointing first run for us in a bumper at Aintree, she put up a much better performance next time out at Wetherby when finishing fourth.
Leighton felt she didn’t quite get home that day so I’ve dropped her back in trip today and the form of that race has work out well.
Wheesht is a stunning looking mare, she’s pretty easy to deal with but she can be a bit highly strung.
Maestro is a long term prospect who has a lot of physical development to do yet, he is related to Earth Summit so he has a staying pedigree who can only improve with time.
Maestro has shown enough to know the ability is there once he strengthens up, he is a sweet person who is easy to deal with at home.
They will be ridden by Leighton Aspell.
Wheesht is looked after and will be led up by Gracie O’Reilly, she is ridden at home by Andy Llewellyn.
No No Maestro is looked after and will be led up by Jan Soldan, he is ridden at home by home by Clare Robinson.
