Two runners today.  Kootenay River runs in the 3.45pm at Kempton and this is his first run for us having shown good form in bumpers and being placed over hurdles.

Hopefully conditions will suit today and we have put cheek pieces on him.  He appears in good form at home and let us hope he runs a good race for his wonderful owner, Lizzie Prowting.

Lady Of Authority runs in the 5pm at Wolverhampton with Georgia Dobie onboard again.  She ran very well last time out when a fast finishing second and if things go her way today, she should be thereabouts once again.  She looks in great nick and we will go hurdling with her at some stage.

On Saturday it was great to welcome our yard sponsors Martin and Sue Harvey to the yard along with Peter and Colette O’Donnell.  It was Peter and Colette’s first visit to Adlestrop Stables and it was great to show them around on a beautiful morning.

It was also great to welcome a hen party to the gallops organised by Josie Inverdale, daughter of John.  Josie and her four Loughborough mates came to the Cotswolds for the weekend and by the look of it, the wedding should be a good bash.
