Beginning to turn out a few of the string for the summer holidays but we still have a few to work. It was good to have Danny Hiskett in riding out following treatment to his collarbone.
Off to the Breeze Up Sales for the next couple of days in Newmarket – hoping to fill some orders and pleased to be building our flat string for the summer.
A fascinating Guineas weekend in prospect as I finalise my horses to follow lists for various competitions.
Although wary of what happened to Air Force One last year, I expect Churchill will win the Guineas on Saturday with both Al Wukair and Barney Roy as possible dangers. If Dream Castle settles, he could be the value at 16-1 though.
In the 1000 Guineas Rhododendron looks a worthy a favourite although Daban was impressive at Newmarket. The horse that came second to her though, Unforgetable Filly looks the value at 25-1
