We have entered Beautiful People and Brave Helios over the next week and hopefully we will find a good opportunity for both of them to follow up their good runs recently.

The main jumping string are building up their fitness nicely, with our physio Maggie Turner giving them a check over this morning as we gradually increase their exercise.

Great to visit Bob and Pauline Scott’s Park Farm Stud in Essex yesterday.  Bob and Pauline have a lovely four-year-old mare with us this year called Mrs Barnes who finished second in her only point to point.  Looking forward to this daughter of Ask winning both hurdles and chases for them.  Every victory will be celebrated well, I can assure you of that.

When setting up their stud, Bob and Pauline took on both Noble Lord and Central Committee as companions for their young stock (pictured).  By doing so, both ‘Nobby’ and ‘Central’ certainly won the lottery and have lived in the lap of luxury ever since.  At 24 and 22 respectively, they have certainly had a golden run and deservedly so having been two great warriors for this yard.
