Today we have two runners heading to Sedgefield. Forty Crown goes in a handicap hurdle and Lawtop Legend goers for his second Bumper start.
Forty Crown is feeling well in himself and at the ripe old age of 11 seems to be loving life. Lawtop Legend is a naughty son of Milan who disappointed in his bumper debut last season. He was very green and weak and should come on for the summer at grass.
Tomorrow we had Royal Salute in at Carlisle but have decided to pull him out as we feel we may target him at a hurdle race and build on his confidence after he was brought down in a chase before he joined us. His confidence is growing gradually and we would hate to knock him back.
Saturday we have Allez Cool and Sybil Grey entered for Kelso.
Allez Cool ran a stormer on awful going at Hexham a couple of weeks ago. He jumped like a buck and got into a battle for the front early on, he finish absolutely drunk and gave us a scary moment or two after the race. We assumed he would need ample time to recover from this, however when Debbi rode him four days later, he was far from exhausted and has been prancing about ever since!! Allez goes for another chase.
Sybil Grey goes in the conditional jockeys distance hurdle. Twizzle has been laden with problems this summer and we hope to see her in that winner enclosure soon!!
Mitcd ran on the flat at Newcastle last week finishing a close 5th, she ran well and got caught for toe in a quick finish. She will now revert between both hurdles and the flat as she seems a very versatile mare.
Onderun has still some shares up for grabs, Club places have filled up fast and we can’t wait to have some great days racing this season. We hope to head to Ayr with him next weekend. Get in touch with Victoria for more details on becoming involved.
