Two runners at Lingfield tomorrow with Juan Horsepower in the 12pm and Lady Of Authority at 3.25pm.  The former is new to the yard and is a sweet horse but has a few miles on the clock.  We will find out a bit more about him tomorrow.

Lady Of Authority won well enough at Wolverhampton stepping up in trip and we try her over a mile and a half for the first time tomorrow.

This is a far more competitive race than her victory at Wolverhampton but she appears in good form and hopefully she will put up a good show.  Noel Garbutt rides both and takes of three pounds.

A busy morning of visitors and thanks to all for the cards and pressies.

First lot we schooled some horses with the help of Tom Bellamy and all went well.

Thanks to the Horse & Groom in Upper Oddington for giving our staff an excellent Christmas party last night.  The food and drink were to a high standard, so much so that all team members looked bright and bushy tailed this morning!

This year was the first presentation of ‘The Teddies’.  A bit like the Lesters but of the Lindt chocolate variety.   Some very worthy winners among the staff and it was very pleasing to see the Bellamy brothers win the ‘longest ejection’ and ‘back chat of the year’ respectively.
