Methodtothemagic (pictured) is declared in the mares bumper at Huntingdon tomorrow with Danny Hiskett onboard.  We bought her last May at Doncaster Sales and she has grown and strengthened since she arrived.

She goes nicely at home and her Irish point-to-point is working out well.  With not many mares bumpers about it is looks a very competitive event but hopefully we will find out a bit more about her tomorrow for her enthusiastic owners the Dalziel Family, Tom White and John Inverdale.

Spring is in the air at Adlestrop this morning with birds singing, the sun up and the bulbs out.  According to the forecasters this won’t last for long but there is certainly a spring in their step for many of the string.

Delighted to get our new purchases on the gallops today and we are pleased with all three.  More details will be announced soon about

If you have not already done so, please book your places for our Question Of Sport which takes place on Thursday 27th February.  It once again promises to be a great evening and we will be raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.   More details can be found HERE.

Very sad to hear of the passing of both James Banks and Robert Alner.  I did not know James but know many who did and he was a great character.  Whilst Rober Alner was undoubtedly a great stockman who made a great impression on many in our industry.
