It was great to get some schooling on the grass this morning before more rain arrives.  We schooled both Beautiful People and Organdi (video above) over fences in preparation for finding some okayish ground when the right opportunities arise.

It was good to school both Keep It Brief and Lesser over hurdles and we look forward to them both making their hurdling debuts in a few weeks time.  Will Kennedy kindly joined us this morning to help with the session.  Will is a great professional and it’s always good to have him about.

Present From Dubai and Iron Horse both schooled over fences.  Iron Horse will hopefully be out in early February, whilst we hope to give Present From Dubai his chasing debut once he has a bit more practice.

We have entered Ocho Grande at Kempton on Monday on the all-weather. He was purchased at Newmarket for the Race Against Prostate Cancer syndicate and with the ground being so heavy at present, we have decided to give him a run on the all-weather but taking him hurdling.    Hopefully he will give his enthusiastic syndicate plenty of entertainment over the coming months for a very worthy cause.
