Totterdown is declared in the Imperial Cup on Saturday at Sandown.  The rains have come and conditions should suit.

He won a nice prize on the track earlier in the season and also ran very well in valuable handicap there.  He will need to improve a fair bit to trouble the judge in what is always a competitive race.  However we are taking his hood off and hoping this might bring about a bit of improvement.

Danny Hiskett rides and off a nice low weight, let’s hope he puts up a good show.

Great to pop over to Baydon at lunchtime to see one of Sue Welch’s home-breds out of Tiger Line and Chris and Claire Bonner’s.  He is a really athletic four-year-old by Arvico and looks a very promising type.  His mother did well for us here at Adlestrop and we look forward to this chesnut gelding joining the string shortly.
