Thursday 12th January

On the way to Leicester to saddle Speed Demon in the 2.40pm – hope they don’t have too much rain.

Arctic Chief and Time Wise are declared for Huntingdon tomorrow although the forecast does not look good and there is an inspection at 8am.  Arctic Chief has been off for some time but showed ability in bumpers and has always worked nicely.  He has a good jump in him but would not want the ground too soft.

Time Wise again would not like the ground too soft as she got stuck in the mud at Warwick on her hurdling debut.  Let us hope the rains do not come.  She will be ridden a bit more prominently this time and would want a longer trip in time but she is a well-bred mare, who has shown plenty of ability at home.
