Off to Windsor today to saddle Golden Deal in the 5.10pm.  She is a nice filly we purchased at the Newmarket Breeze Ups and is by leading sire Havana Gold.  Tom Queally rides and she wears a hood on her debut.  She goes nicely at home but I think she will appreciate a bit further in time.

Tulane is declared in the 2pm at Leicester tomorrow.  He will appreciate the 7 furlongs and will hopefully have learned from his Chepstow experience.

Secret Look was stepped up in trip at Lingfield on Saturday night.  Tom Marquand thought that on better ground, he might fair better as he travelled more sweetly with these conditions.

My selection of Acclamation in the sires competition at Goodwood, resulted in a game third behind Sea The Stars.

I was lucky enough to be a guest of Hunscote Stud at Goodwood on Saturday where they had their annual box.  A great view of the most beautiful racecourse in the world and some fine racing to boot.  Joined by the Inverdale family, we managed to make a profit on our paddock selections in the Stewards Cup.  A fair achievement.
