Off to Huntingdon today with Totterdown and Western Storm. Hopefully of a couple of good runs, although the opposition is tough today.
Thanks to the rain, we were able to school on the grass this morning with Tom Bellamy and Danny Hiskett in the saddle. It was good to get some of the novices over baby hurdles, having done lots of jumping in the outdoor school over the past month or so.
Lady Of Authority is declared at Wolverhampton on Thursday. She steps up to a mile on a track she has run well on in the past. She may have her own ideas about the game but appears in good form at home.
The horse profiles for your five to follow competition today are:
Vinnie has run some cracking races for us in the past, including winning at Leicester after a long absence and an excellent second at Doncaster last year when stepping up in trip.
He has always been a hard-pulling type but certainly has a lot of ability. He will start over hurdles but will hopefully be over fences this season at some stage.
Elsa is from a good, tough jumping family and always showed promise at home. She is a big mare who has taken time to mature and having had one run in a bumper, will ultimately make a chaser.
Whisper has the size and scope of a chaser and we were delighted with his success at Huntingdon over hurdles last year.
He stays well and is hopefully handicapped to do well over fences.
