We have declared Flying Dragon for Wolverhampton tomorrow evening in the 7.30pm. We have put a hood on him to help him settle better in the early part of his race. Jonny Peate who is attached to Mark Johnston’s yard has been booked to ride and claims seven pounds. I have known his parents for many years and he looks a promising young rider in the making. Hopefully his claim will be valuable.
Organdi has several entries next week in the hope of finding the best ground possible for her. Looking forward to giving her more experience over fences but all options look competitive at this stage.
It was great to be a guest of owners Tim and June Watts at Warwick yesterday to support the County Air Ambulance. The charity do a great job and are integral to the racing industry. Former jockey Jason Maguire’s life was saved by an air ambulance and we look forward to continuing our support for them.
The Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe on Sunday looks a classic in the making and with predicted soft ground, it will be a hard one to call. At the prices, Raabihah looks each way value having run so well in the race last year.
