30th July - Souhwell
One runner today at Southwell.
Alan ran very flat in his last race in early March, he’d been on the go a long time and I think he just needed a break.
He went away for a good holiday after that.
Alan would probably prefer a bit further than this two miles but he can be very keen when he’s fresh so I’ve dropped him back in trip today in the hope there is a good strong gallop and he can settle.
Alan is a horse that has ability, he hasn’t always helped himself by not relaxing in his races and I would like to step him back up in trip once I’ve got the gas out of him.
He’s pretty fit but he will improve for the outing.
Alan is an easy horse to deal with at home, he’s a little pro. He can be quite strong on the gallops but he’s better than he was.
He will be ridden by Gavin Sheehan.
Cervaro Mix is looked after, will be led up and is ridden at home by Flora Alessandroni.
