Two runners today with Iron Horse (pictured) running in the 2.05pm at Chepstow and Tulane in the 4.35pm at Southwell.
Iron Horse runs over three miles for the first time and hopefully he will appreciate the galloping track and it will allow him to get his act together over fences. He has run well on the course in the past and appears in good form at home. Danny Hiskett rides.
Tulane definitely deserves to win having been so consistent and we are hoping the drop in trip on the fibre sand will do the trick. Once again he looks in great nick and we are hopeful of another competitive run with Luke Morris onboard.
Lady Of Authority runs at Huntingdon tomorrow in the 2 ½ mile handicap hurdle at 2.45pm. This will be her first run in a handicap and she has had a break due to some niggly problems. However she is working and schooling nicely at home and hopefully our patience will be rewarded with a decent run.
We also have entries at the weekend on the flat and over jumps and we look forward to getting a few more of the string out over November.
We were delighted to take part in the Racing Welfare Virtual West Open Day yesterday. If you haven’t seen our video, you can view it here:
Thanks to all who contributed to Barnsy’s bench which was placed in the churchyard yesterday at St Nicholas’s in Lower Oddington.
It is a beautiful area and thanks to everyone’s generosity we have also been able to tidy up the churchyard and I am sure Barnsy would approve. We thought it appropriate the the bench was placed there on Remembrance Day and we look forward to many visitors using the bench in years to come as we remember our great friend.
