Both Robin Des Smoke and Present From Dubai had pleasing runs at Plumpton yesterday.  Smokey jumped and travelled well from the front in the mares novice hurdle only to be outpaced from the last by the well fancied winner.

She looks to really enjoy her racing and jumps with great accuracy and we look forward to her providing a lot of fun and entertainment for owner Lizzie Prowting in the future.

Present From Dubai once again jumped and travelled well in his second chase, only to be out paced in the straight on ground that was probably not quite soft enough for him.  Hopefully the handicapper will drop him a few pounds as he is carrying plenty of weight and we will look for some easier conditions in April.

On our way to Wetherby today to saddle Lesser (pictured) in the 2.50pm.  There are a couple of interesting opponents who look pretty promising but we are pleased with our unbeaten bumper winner and we look forward to his hurdling debut.

An interesting day for The Adlestrop Club tomorrow with two runners – Master Vintage at Market Rasen and Muthabir at Haydock where we also run Mrs Barnes as she steps up to three miles.  A busy week and hopefully they will continue to run well.
