We decided to give Lingfield a miss on Thursday with Keep It Brief and Methodtothemagic.  Hopefully there are alternative options for them over the next couple of weeks.  Lack of rain is causing a problem to many but hopefully some rainfall is due at the weekend.

Much has been written about the smaller fields due to the lack of rain but as all trainers know, it only takes one injury on too fast ground and their racing careers have to be put on hold for twelve months or more.

Delighted to welcome the Racegoers Club to Adlestrop on Saturday morning.  It was a pleasure to show the members our horses on the gallops and give them a tour of the yard.

The group was lead by Mary-Ann Sandercock who does a great job of organising the Racegoers Club.  We have known each other a long time as we both worked for Graham Thorner in our younger days.

So great for the sport to see so many female jockeys riding winners on Saturday.  Very pleased A Plus Tard is in my horses to follow list this season.  I thought he’d win the Cheltenham Gold Cup this year – it will take a good one to beat him next.
