Off to Doncaster today to saddle Arctic Chief (pictured) and Muthabir.  Hoping both run well and better ground and a tongue tie is the answer to the former and three miles the answer to the latter.

Have declared Cosmic King and Sheelbewhatsheelbe at Huntingdon tomorrow.  Cosmic King showed promise in bumpers made a nice hurdling debut at Ludlow recently.  Whilst Sheelbewhatsheelbe ran satisfactorily on her jumping debut at Hereford.  Hopefully the course won’t get too much rain between now and then.

Beautiful People ran pleasingly at Taunton yesterday and would have been fourth but for a mistake at the last.  A more galloping track should suit her.   Whilst Timetobenefit stepped up from her bumper debut, travelling nicely and jumping well in the mares novice hurdle.  She stayed on at one pace in the straight behind some useful opponents and will eventually get three miles once she learns to settle a better.
