Saturday 17th April, 2021

A beautiful morning in the Cotswolds with sunshine and blue skies.  An appropriate day to celebrate life – especially that of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

We had a constructive work morning as we prepare runners in the hope of some rain.

Congratulations to owners Bunny Roberts and Steven Smith who both had extremely pleasing wins at Newbury and Ayr yesterday.

Looking forward to the Scottish Grand National tomorrow in the hope of a Scottish success with Aye Right for Harriet Graham.  A horse that pleases the eye of any National Hunt fan.

It was great to watch re-runs of the race on Racing TV this morning – especially watching Noble Lord run a fine second behind Paris Pike.   Looking forward to winning it ourselves with Lesser in 2023.
