A morning of cantering, physio and dentist on a beautiful spring day – the opposite to what we had yesterday.  Made some entries for next week to replace yesterday’s Huntingdon abandonment.

No runners over the weekend but look forward to going to Chepstow tomorrow to support our yard sponsors, Tori Global who are holding a charity raceday in aid of Clic Sargent.

Also making a brief visit to Ireland on Monday to visit Willie Mullin’s yard.  The trip was purchased thanks to the generosity of Adlestrop Club member Jay Taylor at our Charity Golf Day last year.  Jay has kindly asked me to go along in order to give the trainer some advice on how to get horses back from injury.

Well done Danny Hiskett for riding the winner of the big race at Warwick today.  I demonstrated how to ride a finish Dunwoody style the other morning and it looked like he took it onboard! Good ride.
