With the rains coming to the West country, we have decided to not run Brave Helios at Newton Abbot tomorrow, as he prefers a sounder surface.  We will hopefully return to the track Monday week for a handicap chase.

Tulane showed he needed further than six furlongs on his debut at Chepstow on Thursday.  I am sure he will come on for the experience and we will try him over seven furlongs next time.

Tragic news from Haydock yesterday with the fatal injury to stalls handler Stephen Yarborough.  Well respected and like all stalls handlers, brave and courageous.  The whole racing family’s sympathies go out to his friends and family.
