We were all delighted with Organdi’s great victory in the novice handicap chase at Exeter on Thursday.  Under a fine ride from Danny and with conditions in her favour, she travelled and jumped very well winning with her ears pricked.

The handicapper will no doubt have his say but we look forward to campaigning her when ground conditions suit and hopefully there will be other races to be won for her enthusiastic and patient owners.

The horses appear in good form and although we don’t have many entries at present, it’s great to enter Picanha at Kempton at the weekend although rain will be needed.

Delighted to be invited to the McCoys at Cheltenham on Thursday evening.  There were many worthy winners including standing ovations for Simon Claisse and Richard Johnson.  Both extremely popular devotees to the jumping game.

Many thanks to all at Godolphin for giving Team Adlestrop such an excellent day at Newmarket on Friday.  Jo, Faisal and myself were invited to Dalham Hall Stud and the races in order to collect our Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards in person.

It was great to view some of the excellent stallions at Darley and then be treated to a super lunch with great racing, capped by a victory for owners Hunscote Stud and Chris Humber in the last.
