A morning of both work and schooling with Ian Popham and Danny Hiskett riding their prospective mounts for next week.  Pleased to report all seem in good form

Made some entries for Taunton on Tuesday hoping for a fairly dry forecast which would increase our chances.

It was good to welcome the Brown family yesterday afternoon to visit Next Lot and then Call Me Emma, their broodmare, at Batsford Stud.  She is due to have a Kayf Tara foal anytime soon.  Call Me Emma was placed in bumpers and hurdles for us before getting an injury and let’s hope her offspring can make up for that.

Just a reminder if you have not booked your places for the Cheltenham Preview on the 6th March, or the Question of Sport on the 23rd March – please do as soon as possible as both events are filling up!

Yesterday’s photograph was easy to identify – but who is this a statue of in Parliament Square? The first to email the correct answer will win an Adlestrop Club keyring torch!
