Most of the string are now back from their holidays and looking great.  Definitely the best group of horses we have had at Adlestrop for some time and we are looking forward to the season ahead.  The summer jumpers continue to get fitter as we head for our come back in August.

Today Tom Segal does his ante-post tips for one of my favourite races of the year, the King George at Ascot.  It’s always an exciting race as normally the three year olds take on the older horses for the first time.

I often joke with Tom that I know which horse he will tip for these races and I knew Japan at 8-1 would be his selection.  We all hope Enable can win it again, however Japan ran an excellent race in the Eclipse and will definitely appreciate the step up to a mile and a half.  He certainly looks the value bet to give Ballydoyle yet another Group 1 victory.
