Madame Ritz disappointed at Wolverhampton on Friday.  She has suffered with allergies in the past and we will now treat her for this in the hope that she can return to form soon.

Short on entries at present as many of the string build up their fitness for the autumn.

I was a guest of owner Steven Smith at Goodwood on Saturday.  The boxes on the course have the greatest view in the world and it was great to see Charlie Hills having a good meeting.

I was delighted to attend the Festival of Eventing at Gatcombe yesterday to help present Tina Cook with the winning prize in the RoR class.

Her winning mount David Cricket, is a daughter of the great race mare Lady Cricket.  Tina is daughter of Josh Gifford and it was wonderful to see this ex-racehorse perform so well in his new career.
