We have declared Flying Dragon in the 1.15pm at Bath tomorrow and Georgia Dobie takes the ride in this apprentice handicap.  Georgia has ridden winners for us before and is an excellent rider and hopefully will get a good tune out of him.

He is stepping up in trip but hopefully as he learns to settle better in his races, this will be to his advantage.  He prefers a sound surface so hopefully the ground will dry out between now and then.

Although there has been some rain around recently, there has not been enough therefore most of the string are now on holiday enjoying the sunshine and grass here in Adlestrop.  Look forward to bringing them in next month and the horses realising their full potential in the autumn.

Delighted to welcome our former assistant Catch Bissett to the yard this week, who is in the area on holiday.  Catch was the first BHA graduate to work for a trainer and became our assistant, thanks to the sponsorship of Tori Global.

After three years with us she went home to Scotland to work for Nick Alexander and has recently been issued her permit to train.  Catch was the winner of the ‘Employee of the Year’ at the stable staff awards in 2019 and we look forward to her training many winners in the future.
