Master Vintage declared for Warwick

On my way to Sandown to saddle Muthabir.  There are now six runners but conditions are hardly perfect, although the favourite’s yard have not been in form.

Master Vintage is declared for Warwick on Sunday for The Adlestrop Club.  He ran a cracker last time out at Doncaster but went up six pounds for coming second.  Danny Hiskett once again rides and let’s hope Vinnie can cope with the very soft ground.

We decided against running Timetobenefit at Hereford as the ground will be too soft for her but hopefully she can take advantage of her handicap mark in more spring like conditions and we are keen to step her up in trip.

I had an enjoyable night attending the Well Child Cheltenham Preview last night, by kind invitation of ITV Racing’ Ed Chamberlin.  With Sam Thomas at Carlisle, I was happy to stand in for him on the panel which included Charlie Longsdon, Richard Hoiles and Racing Post editor Bruce Millington.

Well Child are a wonderful charity and Ed is a great ambassador for them.
