Dandy Lass showed a bit of promise last night in the fillies maiden at Windsor.  A hot contest, she showed signs of greenness on ground that was a bit on the firm side for her however she was not beaten that far by the leaders.

Liam Keniry suggested we drop her back a furlong and run her on the all weather if there is no rain about.  She is the type to come good in the autumn, rather like her part-owner Michael Barnes.

Looking forward to Lady Of Authority running at Kempton tomorrow where hopefully she will have another chance, despite a five pound penalty for her win last week.

We have declared Tulane at Sandown on Thursday.  He’s been off for a fair while with an injury but has always shown ability at home.  Jane Elliott, who has been impressing many, takes the ride and let’s hope this race tees him up for a successful summer campaign and he rewards everyone patience.

Off to the Doncaster sales tomorrow to try and fill some orders.  It is a competitive market but hopefully we will come back with some new prospects.

Many thanks to all at Heros Charity who entertained the Adlestrop Club so well yesterday.  The Club have visited the charity before but now they are not only training horses but training young people and it was great to see former Adlestrop Club horse, Catkin Copse go through her paces in front of the Club.  She is a fantastic ride and is much loved by all the students.

All who attended were inspired by Grace Muir’s great enthusiasm for the cause of not only the horse but also young people, who despite their sometimes troubled backgrounds, are learning to be valued members of the equine industry.
