Tulane is declared at Kempton on Wednesday evening in the two mile handicap run at 8.30pm  We are stepping him up in trip for the first time and hopefully now he settles better he will improve for the step up.  He has been wonderfully consistent for us and deserves to get his head in front.  Once again Luke Morris takes the ride.

We have entered Lady Of Authority and Gentleman Moore at Uttoxeter on Sunday.  Things did not go Gentleman Moore’s way at the track on Friday.  He has always been tricky at the start and despite having his regular handler Andy with him, he did not jump off due to a standing start and the starting tape landing in front of him.  Hopefully he can make amends at the weekend.

Timetobenefit ran well until the straight on Friday and appeared to enjoy being up with the pace.  We will now drop her back in trip with some headgear and hope that this brings about a competitive run.

Great to welcome Hannah Bishop and Ian Kingston to the yard on Saturday morning to see Lizzie Prowting’s Picanha, Minella Whisper and Robin Des Smoke.  Ian is a member of the Adlestrop Club and it was good to see Muthabir stride on with Smokey on the gallops (pictured).
