A beautiful morning of sunshine on the gallops as we work our runners for the weekend and beyond.  We have both Flying Dragon and Keep It Brief entered at the weekend, whilst we get others fit for summer jumping campaigns.

Mattie Ross ran a super race at Southwell on Monday, finishing second to a highly regarded winner.  Twelve lengths clear of the third, Mattie travelled nicely under a fine ride from Danny to challenge in the straight and I am sure she will have learned from the experience.

Depending on how she comes out of the race, we may well think about running her in another bumper in a few weeks.  Delighted that she is providing so much fun for her enthusiastic owners, The Zara Syndicate – led brilliantly by Guy Butchers.

Yesterday we were very pleased to welcome Dominic Ryan, Tot Calver, Susan Poulton and Phil Surtees to the yard to see the horses.  Emphasising again what a healthy and delightful way to spend a summers morning within government guidelines.
