Fighting Poet (pictured) has been declared in the 4.25pm at Lingfield on Friday with Rab Havlin onboard.  We are dropping him back in trip following his Kempton run which will hopefully help and he has run well over course and distance previously.

Rab rode him in his first race for us and the form has worked out well, so hopefully he will be competitive on Friday for the Richard Phillips Racing Syndicate who are due a bit of luck.

Methodtothemagic jumped brilliantly at Lingfield on Monday, however was a bit too enthusiastic and did too much in the first half of the race.  However she stayed on well again and next time we will drop her in as we did on her chase debut and I am sure this will mean a return to her previous form which has worked out well.

A good work morning today prepping for a fair few runners if only it would rain – but such matters are out of our control so best not worry about it although frustrating for all.
