Off to Leicester this evening to saddle Flying Dragon (pictured) in the 8.05pm.  This is his first run for us having been purchased in December.  He runs in the colours of The Dreamers, a wonderful syndicate and hopefully he will give them some fun this summer before going hurdling in the autumn.

Present From Dubai is declared in the 5.55pm at Huntingdon tomorrow.  We are dropping him back in trip for this run over fences and hopefully the ground will ride on the easy side of good.  We have left the hood off him and hopefully he will put up a good show as he appears in good form at home.

Pop Mistress and J Gaye have been declared at Southwell on Wednesday with Pop Mistress making her debut in the bumper.  Hopefully she will show some potential for her patient syndicate, whilst J Gaye makes her hurdling debut in the mares novice hurdle.  She has never been out of the first four and has taken well to jumping and we are hopeful of a bold show.

I’ve had a busy weekend being on The Opening Show on Saturday and Luck On Sunday yesterday.  I have known both interviewers, Luke Harvey and Nick Luck for many years and it was great to have an opportunity to promise National Racehorse Week.  The replay for Luck On Sunday is available to watch here if you’d like to:
