Friday Market Rasen. 3.35pm Mistersister runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m. Mistersister ran well on his reappearance after a break, he broke a blood vessel at Warwick when my horses weren’t right and we gave him plenty of time to recover from that. He is a horse that takes a lot of work so he will improve for that outing but the most encouraging thing was that he ran to the line...

Saturday Cartmel. 3.19pm Little Awkward runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m 1f. March was clearly not right on his only outing last winter when pulling up at Haydock, he then had lots of frustrating niggles that meant it was a very stop start season until the last six weeks.   March will make up into a nice novice chaser next winter but I wanted to get him back on a racecourse before h...

5.35pm Rhebus Road runs in a novice handicap hurdle over 2m. Rhebus won nicely at Huntingdon last time out, it was very satisfying because we thought he was ok but things hadn’t quite worked out previously which was mainly due to ground and my horses being out of form.   Rhebus recovered from that race quickly and because he’s had a quiet winter we thought we’d give ...

6.20pm Nazwa runs in a novice handicap hurdle over 2m 4f.   Nazwa finally got his head in front last time out around here after showing good placed form previously, this was his second race after a wind operation.   There are only two runners in this race and Dan Skelton’s horse will be the likely favourite.   Nazwa has been in good form at home since his last run a...

Saturday Uttoxeter. 5.15pm Trevada runs in a novice hurdle over 2m 4f. After three good runs including a win in bumpers Trevada was disappointing with his jumping on his first hurdle race last month.  He’s a big horse who had schooled nicely but he just looked as if the hurdles got in his way and he never got into any rhythm at Hereford. I’m sure this course will suit him...

3.20pm Cilaos Glace runs in a handicap chase over 3m. Chilli (Booty) has been quite a difficult horse to train with all of his niggly issues, we have had a good clear run with him recently but we’ve been unable to run due to the quick ground. Cihilli loves soft ground and he does prefer to go right handed hence the trek up to Perth where hopefully he will encounter both.   Chilli is...

8.20pm Bembridge runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m 4f. Bembridge broke a blood vessel when last seen in January, that was when my hoses were not right and he was also found to be suffering from ulcers. Bembridge is a horse with plenty of ability and I can’t wait to go chasing with him in the autumn, last season was a non event for him but he has been given plenty of time to recover and reg...

5.30pm Times Are Blue runs in a bumper over 2m 2f. This will be his first race. Times Are Blue is a very cheeky horse by nature, there’s no harm in him but he’s a proper playboy. He goes perfectly well on the gallops but he’s not a speed horse he seems more of a galloper.     He will be ridden by Jonathan Burke. Times Are Blue is looked after and will ...

3.00m Jersey Wonder runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m. Jersey Wonder has been consistent at his level since he went hurdling. Obviously the higher you get in the handicap the better the races are that you compete in and that may be the case for his Cheltenham run although he was too keen that day but his last two poor runs can be explained. His November run at Kempton came off the back of a bus...

1.40pm Rhebus Road runs in a handicap hurdle over 2m. Rhebus ran ok on his handicap debut at Taunton, he looked as if he would be placed turning into the home straight before fading to be fifth. With hindsight my horses weren’t running that well at the time so hopefully that was the reason. Brendan felt he would have learnt a lot that day as they went a very strong gallop and he had to co...
