Tulane runs in the first race at Windsor tonight at 5.40pm. He ran an excellent come back race at Sandown and the ease in the ground should help. He will be ridden by Georgia Dobie who claims three pounds and she has already ridden a winner for us. She came to sit on him the other day and hopefully if he settles well, he should run a good race as he steps up in trip for his very patient owners.
Delighted to win the Heythrop Hunt Golf competition at the Wychwood Golf club on Saturday, along with Ambrose Waddell-Dudley. Ambrose won the tournament last year and I was delighted not to inconvenience him too much in his quest for the double.
It’s always a fun event when Charlie Longsdon plays his annual match. As he came off the eighteenth, it was obvious to see he was holding his club the wrong way round.
Very much looking forward to Royal Ascot this week. I’ve chose War Front to be leading stallion of the meeting in our annual competition and hoping a few Ballydoyle outsiders will help me in my quest.
