Very pleased to see Fine Theatre appreciate the better ground at Worcester on Monday.  He stayed on well up the straight and was not beaten that far in fifth place.  Hopefully he can build on this performance as he looks in particularly good form since his race.

Urban Champion runs in the 8.25pm at Wolverhampton this evening.  It is his first time in a handicap and it is a competitive event, however he has always shown promise at home and hopefully he will settle well and put up a pleasing display.

Pop Mistress makes her hurdling debut at Warwick tomorrow in the two mile maiden hurdle.  She was the impressive winner of both her bumpers but has been off with a tendon injury since.  She has taken well to hurdling at home and Tom Bellamy takes the ride.  One or two decent types are in the race but let us hope she continues to show promise for her patient owners.

Alright Chap (pictured) is declared at Ludlow on Sunday in the 2.35pm.  We have been looking for better ground for him as he doesn’t appear to like soft conditions.  He has always worked nicely and jumps well at home and we look forward to the ground suiting him better at the Shropshire track.
