So pleased to see Corrany run so well at Stratford yesterday.  Given a fine ride by Lilly Pinchin, he travelled well and stayed on in the straight for a very pleasing third.  In the process he has raised some money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and will hopefully get his head in front soon when conditions suit. He enjoyed a roll in the mud when he got home.

Methodtothemagic is declared in the 2 ½ mile handicap hurdle at Southwell tomorrow run at 5.30pm.  Having won over course and distance last time out she has gone up nine pounds in the handicap, however once again Finn Lambert will take off a valuable five pounds although the ground may be on the softer side this time.  She appears in good form and hopefully she will continue to reward the patience of her enthusiastic owners.

Plenty of rain throughout the country which may not suit our entries later in the week – Sheila Nash and Shibuya Song.  Both mares are in good form and we are keen to run should conditions suit.
