Timetobenefit runs at Hereford on Saturday in the two and a half mile, conditional jockeys novice handicap hurdle.  She has had a wind op since her last run and hopefully this will be a help, however the heavy ground is far from ideal.

She has always shown us ability but has never had the best of luck and let us hope we see an improved performance on Saturday.

A frosty and foggy morning today as the string had a morning of cantering followed by a weigh in.

We have Mighty Elsa entered on Sunday and Robin Des Smoke entered next week, however for most of the string the ground is not in their favour so hopefully we will have a drier New Year.

Congratulations to Nick Rust, Bob Champion and Nigel Payne on their inclusion in the New Years Honours list.  All three have given horseracing great service in difficult times.

As we move into tier 4, let us hope that covid-19 recedes soon.  2020 has been a difficult one for everyone, however all connected with Adlestrop Stables have done their very best to weather the storm.

Our staff have worked extremely hard to keep the show on the road and thank you to all who have supported us through these difficult times.

May 2021 bring us more resilience, courage and reason for optimism.

Happy New Year.
