Off to Warwick today with Western Storm and Sheelbewhatsheelbe running in the first two races. The ground will be on the soft side for both of them, however it will be good to find out more about Western Storm having recently had a soft palate operation. Whilst Sheelbe will I am sure be suited by better ground.
We had a good schooling morning with Ian Popham and Danny Hiskett in. The ground was riding very well following overnight rain.
Looking forward to the Adlestrop Club Question of Sport tomorrow night at Cotswolds Club, Chipping Norton. A keen contest is inevitable with the usual rivalry of Inverdale and Pougatch and the Upthorpe Racing team looking for yet another victory over the entered teams. This year there will be stiff competition with my old school, St Andrews of Leatherhead, having a combo of old boys and old teachers. On their last visit they were very close to victory and I am sure there has been a lot of swotting going on!
