After a few disappointing efforts over the last couple of weeks I’ve decided to give the majority of my string a quiet ten days. They look well and are fresh and happy at home but too many have pulled up for no apparent reason. I know it’s nothing serious, they are scoping clean and the blood test results are normal from the random selection we’ve tested. They will conti...

One runner today at Ludlow.   Minella ran with credit on his first outing for us at Warwick when finishing fifth, it was a competitive race and he hadn’t run for two years.   Minella won a point to point before being bought by Trevor Hemmings for £100k he went to Paul Nicholls who struggled with lameness issues with him. He returned to Gleadhill Stud and after investiga...

One runner today at Taunton.   Lady had decent bumper form in 2019 before having a nightmare winter the following season due to lung infections, we just couldn’t keep her healthy for any length of time so she didn’t make it back onto a racecourse until earlier this year. After such a long lay off it was a perfectly respectable run on very heavy ground at Newbury, she looked as ...

Saturday Ascot.   Sevarano has had a great start to his chasing career with two wins from three starts over fences so far. Steve slipped going into the first at Newbury on his last outing, it completely unnerved him for the remainder of the race and as a result he couldn’t get into the same rhythm he had in his previous races. Brendan said he could see the skid marks on the ground i...

One runner today at Fontwell.   Westreet has had a disappointing season so far, he comes out of his races very well so I have to think he’s saving a bit to himself, as an 11 yo he’s actually perfectly entitled to be a bit cute. I’ve put blinkers back on to him for the second time, he loves this ground and hopefully he will give a better show. Westreet is most likely to ...

Three runners today at Hereford.   Kaphumor has been disappointing in both of his races for me this season having won a point to point previously. He’s a horse that shows plenty at home on the gallops but he has not travelled in his races and I think he might need some form of headgear on in future and he’s most likely to go chasing after today.   Kaphumor is a bit grump...

Two runners today at Exeter.   1.40pm Norley runs in a novice hurdle over 2m 3f. Norley broke a blood vessel last time out at Plumpton, it’s not something he’s ever done before at home or in a race. When he arrived at Plumpton that day he was very wound up and with the stables being so close to the racecourse he got worse during the day, as a result he was way too keen e...

One runner today at Sandown. This meeting is subject to a further inspection at 8am.   Dom disappointed in the Welsh National last time out but the ground was no where near soft enough for him, he loves it completely bottomless and everything happens too quickly for him in better conditions.   Dominateur is a talented horse but I think he could still show us more on a racecourse so ...

One runner today at Wincanton.     Keith has won both his races so far this season, a hurdle race at Ffos Las and then the Sussex National at Plumpton. He was pretty impressive on both occasions on his favoured heavy ground. Today is a more competitive race around a track that won’t play to his strengths but he’s desperate for another race and the ground will definitely ...

One runner today at Lingfield.   Jersey Wonder ran in one of these type of races two weeks ago and finished a creditable third, the winner that day was impressive and he re opposes today.   Jersey Wonder had decent staying flat form before joining us and he seemed to really enjoy his recent outing on the all weather where he was able to dictate from the front.   Jersey Wonder...
