We have declared Stoney Cross for Ludlow tomorrow in the 12.20pm – the two mile National Hunt novice hurdle.  A home-bred of Sue Welch’s, she has a good pedigree and showed enough promise in her bumper to think there would be a race or two in her.

Hopefully the ground won’t be too soft and we can find out a bit more about her tomorrow.  Danny Hiskett rides having schooled her a lot at home.

We had a good morning of schooling as the frosts have kept away.  Apart from the flat runners, we should have some jumpers on the course after Christmas.

Delighted that Adlestrop Stables has been shortlisted for the Lycetts Team Champion Award.  A great effort by all the staff here and much deserved.

We have a very competitive team and I know they will do all they can to win the Award – however to be shortlisted is a great achievement by all and emphasises what a fantastic place Adlestrop Stables is to work and have your horse trained.
