One runner today at Market Rasen.   Vinnie won his latest race at Uttoxeter after finishing a promising fourth on his seasonal debut at the same course. I’ve explained previously that Vinnie is a work in progress, he is a horse that has talent and can jump extremely well but he can lack concentration at times. In his last race the commentary said he was making mistakes down the back...

Three runners today at Uttoxeter.   Cervaro Mix (Alan) ran well on his seasonal debut at Southwell last month when finishing a close up third. Gavin gave him a patient ride on that occasion because he can be very keen when he’s fresh but they went a good gallop in the race so he actually settled nicely. Alan will improve for that outing but he is carrying top weight today and he&rsq...

Two runners today at Fontwell.   Pontresina is an honest horse who has been placed five times from eight runs when running on his favoured good ground. He has schooled nicely at home he’s not over big but he’s neat and athletic over an obstacle, he’s not flash in his work but is very competitive when upsides. This will be his first run for us over fences, but he did win a...

Two runners today at Uttoxeter.   This will be his first run over fences and his second race since a major wind operation.   Roger is a stunning looking horse who has been disappointing so far in his races but he was found to have a serious wind issue and due to ground he has only had one outing since so it’s impossible to know how successful it has been. As you know it someti...

Four runners today at Fontwell.     Bringthehousedown or Joey as he is known, arrived with us last winter thanks to Ron Hodges who recommended us because of our equine pool. Joey has big flat feet so therefore he has had plenty of annoying issues with bruising etc. He spends a lot of time swimming and Ben, my farrier, is his constant companion. Joey is a big, strong horse who won o...

One runner today at Bangor On Dee.   Le Boulevardier has run well in both his previous starts in bumpers finishing third and second respectively. Both of those races were won by horses trained by Fergal O’Brien and they produced professional performances whereas Le Boulevardier still looked a bit green and gawky.   Le Boulevardier is a cheeky horse at home, he’s always l...

One runner today at Newton Abbot.   4.55pm Paseo runs in a novice chase over 2m 4f.   This will be his first run over fences.   Paseo was consistent last winter in his first few runs over hurdles before the weather went against him. Because of the endless winter we endured we decided to give him a couple of runs on the all weather, he ran ok first time out but his form ...

One runner today at Southwell   La Boulervardier runs in the 2:45pm Bumper. I was pleased with his run here last time, he should his inexperience when he hit the front 2f from home. The form of that race has worked out well and the horse of Jamie Snowdens who just beat us is in the race today. He's a very laid back individual and I'm hoping he has come on for that run. La Boulervardier (Br...

One runner today at Chepstow. Spice ran better than his position suggests at Newbury three weeks ago, it was a much more competitive race than this and he wasn’t beaten that far. He did hang a bit in the home straight but we’ve found nothing wrong with him that could’ve caused it so I have to hope it was a one off.   Spice came back from that race in good order and becau...
