Work morning Wednesday and as the string’s exercise increases, thankfully there is a prospect of rain on the way.  With the frosty mornings, the clippers have come out as thanks to the winter coats, haircuts are needed.

Decisions to make for entries on Sunday and Monday – opposition and ground dependent as ever.

It’s this time of year I enter horses to follow competitions for the upcoming jumps season proper.  Fascinating to see Samcro take on Buveur D’Air in the Champion Hurdle.  One of the many exciting clashes for the months ahead.

Also interesting to hear that Buveur D’Air has had a wind op.  At this stage my money is on the reigning champion, as I’ve always been a big fan as readers of this blog will know.
