Looking forward to going to Goodwood this evening for the 7.30pm to saddle flying Dragon.  It will be interesting to see how he runs stepping up in trip.

We have entered Pop Mistress (pictured) in the mares bumper at Uttoxeter on Thursday.  She went nicely this morning and hopefully will continue to show great promise.

It’s Oaks day at Epsom and as a local boy, always found the first week of June a fascinating one.  Today’s race looks very open and if having a bet, would probably look to one of the outsiders running on faster ground for the first time.

Tomorrow’s Derby looks another fascinating affair with a worthy favourite in Bolshoi Ballet.  Would dearly love john Leeper or Mac Swiney to win the classic, however my each way bet is Third Realm who looks as though he will act around Epsom by the way he won the Lingfield Derby Trial and looks to have both speed and stamina.
