Delighted for all concerned with Present From Dubai winning at Wetherby this afternoon. Settling far better with a hood, he was given a fine ride by Danny Hiskett to take up the running two out and stayed on well after the last. Jumping well throughout, he could do with a stronger pace in future but hopefully will go over fences at some stage and continue to give his patient owners some fun and success.
The somewhat inevitable news that racing is abandoned until the end of April. Obviously racing understands the bigger picture however it will be a difficult time for many in the industry. But I am sure we will do everything we can to eradicate this virus and get the racing show back on the road as soon as possible.
There will be some difficult conditions to be made by owners and trainers over the coming months but I am sure everyone will put the horses welfare first.
