We continue to exercise the horses in Adlestrop and are adhering to all precautions since the Prime Minister’s announcement last night.

The National Trainers Federation are doing a great job of keeping all trainers informed of their responsibilities and it’s in times of emergency that you often see the good in people.

It is a case of taking it day by day with the horses as many will probably have to go on their summer holiday early as the virus spreads.

Fortunately we have lots of paddocks here for the horses to summer in and many National Hunt horses in the UK can look forward to an extended summer holiday.

This year’s Five to Follow Competition was a home victory for once with Nigel Hiskett – father of Danny, winning first prize and assistant Hannah Gregory in second place.

Thank you to everyone who entered and we look forward to next season’s competition which will start on the 1st November, when hopefully the world will be back to normal.
