Organdi has been declared for tomorrow evening at Uttoxeter in the mares only handicap hurdle.   She won last time out in February with Danny Hiskett onboard and he once again takes the ride.  She has been off the track since with a niggle but appears in good form so we are hopeful that she can put up a good show tomorrow night.

Sad to hear the news of the passing of John McCririck.  Like most who knew him, I was very fond of John.  He was nothing like the image he portrayed and was extremely caring.  I kept a postcard he sent me twenty years ago that proves the point.  He was an intelligent man who when I worked with him on the Morning Line, was always the best prepared and had a wonderful sense of humour.

His wife Jenny has been a fantastic partner to him and will be lost without him.  However I’m sure she will gain great comfort from knowing that her husband was so immensely loved by those that knew him.
