Great to welcome Jenny Stowell and Tot Calver to the gallops this morning. As members of the Beautiful People syndicate, they saw both Beautiful People and Organdi on the gallops. Having won six races between them, we look forward to adding to that tally when hopefully both will be on the course in August.
It was great to take a leisurely walk up the gallops with them, having ridden out first lot on my new hack Ally – who has been kindly loaned to us by our neighbour Mandy Woolliams. He is a beautiful sixteen-year-old skewbald and he has settled in very well.
It will be a shame not to go to Goodwood this year, as it was always a very happy pilgrimage. Siskin is the favourite for the Sussex Stakes whilst Pricewise in the Racing Post tipped Mohaather who was the most impressive winner at Ascot on Saturday and he was my tip in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot when he had the most unlucky run and certainly has a great deal of ability. It would be wonderful to see him win for my old mucker, Marcus Tregoning.
