Thanks to the hard work of all the staff, the horses have been kept on the go all over Christmas and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s work morning as we prepare the runners for their upcoming races.

Congratulations to all connections of yesterday’s King George winner Clan Des Obeaux – especially to Sam Twiston-Davies who thoroughly deserves every big race success he achieves.

The race produced a few disappointments with Lostintranslation making a noise and Cyrname not appearing to fire.  However the winner looked and performed magnificently and could yet be a live contender for the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Today’s Welsh National is always a favourite and it would be great to see Now McGinty triumph for the inform Edmunds yard.  He put up a fine run against Santini last time out at Sandown and has been trained for the race.
