Fighting Poet did not appreciate the slow early pace at Wolverhampton this afternoon but stayed on in the straight. We will ride him closer to the pace in future, especially on the all-weather as he appears to want every yard of the two-mile trip.
We have declared Corrany at Worcester tomorrow in the three-mile handicap hurdle run at 7.40pm with Finn Lambert onboard. We have changed his headgear to blinkers which he has worn before and hopefully this will help him travel better early on in the race. He has run well over fences over course and distance and the ground conditions should suit.
We purchased two nice National Hunt prospects at Goffs sales yesterday at Doncaster. Swift Jet was placed fourth on his debut in a point-to-point in an above average field. Whilst Little Big Kev was runner up on his debut showing plenty of promise. The market as ever was very strong but hopefully we have found some value and very much looking forward to running them in the autumn.
