Off to Stratford today to saddle Lady Of Authority in the 2.20pm who is making her hurdling debut.  She has won twice for us on the all weather and the ground may be too soft for her today, however there are not many other options for her and it will be great to get her out for some jumping experience.  She has a very enthusiastic group of owners and I’m sure she will give them some fun over the coming months.

Golden Deal runs at Chelmsford tomorrow in the 7.40pm.  She was so narrowly beaten at Lingfield last time out and hopefully she can put up another good show tomorrow evening.

I hope you took my cynical advice in backing Waldgeist in the Arc.  Unfortunately the ground did not suit Enable which emphasises how wrong the saying is that good horses go on any ground.

We often forget that the thoroughbred is a descendant of the Arab horse and you don’t find much mud in the desert.

Enable has been a wonderful standard bearer for the thoroughbred mare and let’s hope she breeds one as good.
