One runner today at Worcester.   Makety ran well on her debut over fences here last month, her jumping was very good and she just failed to give a stone and a half to a well handicapped winner. She has continued to school nicely at home since.   We still don’t know exactly what her best trip is and at times she has appeared tripless but she thoroughly deserves to win a race. ...

Two runners today.  3.20pm Paseo is returning to fences today, he’s always jumped well but he didn’t seem to enjoy chasing last time we tried, we didn’t pursue it on that occasion but horses can change and his schooling has been good so we’ll see. Paseo has become a little bit frustrating so if he does take to fences he’ll find life a lot easier.   Paseo...

Two runners today at Stratford.   6.05pm Makety runs in a handicap chase over 2m 3f.   Makety ran well on her debut over fences at Worcester last month, her jumping was very good and she just failed to give a stone and a half to a well handicapped winner. This is a drop back in trip today around a sharp track, it looks the right race at the right time so hopefully she’ll...

One runner today at Stratford.   1.35pm Nazwa runs in a juvenile hurdle over 2m.   Nazwa had one run on the flat at Wolverhampton where he started slowly was pushed along and stayed on strongly in the final two furlongs.   It wasn’t a bad run but after that he refused to go into the stalls, so now he’s trying his hand at jumping.   I’m not sure if his ...

It’s very disappointing that Panorama felt the need to show such a misleading, gut wrenching episode tonight blaming horse racing for the horrific deaths of those poor animals at an abattoir, many of which were clearly not thoroughbreds. It was an episode designed to shock and it had very little evidence to back up their sensationalist claims. This was gutter journalism and not at all a tr...

Two runners tonight at Southwell     These will be our first runners from our new yard, Neardown Stables, formerly the training yard of Charlie Mann who retired at the end of last season. So far everything has settled in well to their new surroundings but the majority of the string will be coming in over the next ten days.   It’s a fresh start and let’s hope t...

7.50pm - Jersey Wonder runs in a handicap hurdle over 3m. Jersey Wonder ran a little bit below par last time out on rain softened ground at Haydock, it was a step up in class and he wasn’t disgraced but he just can’t quicken up in those conditions. Jersey Wonder was a decent flat horse on quick ground and he’s really taken to hurdling, he seems to thoroughly enjoy his jumping, ...
