Off to Doncaster today to saddle Robin Des Smoke (pictured) in the bumper at 3.40pm.  The winner of a point-to-point in Ireland, she has always shown promise and we look forward to her debut for owner Lizzie Prowting today.  It looks a hot contest, however we will find out a bit about her and we look forward to her going hurdling in the future as she jumps very well.

Master Vintage is declared at Leicester on Wednesday in the 2 ½ mile handicap chase at 3.10pm.  He jumped with great aplomb from the front at Uttoxeter on his last run and although once again the ground will not be ideal, he appears in good form and will hopefully give another prominent run for The Adlestrop Club.

Delighted for all concerned with Secret Reprieve’s excellent victory in the Welsh Grand National on Saturday and especially jockey Adam Wedge, who began his career here at Adlestrop Stables.  He is an excellent rider and deserves much success.

Yet another wonderful weekend of racing and congratulations to all at Team Ditcheat on a wonderful seven timer.
