At last the boss is back from holiday and so is Nigel. We hit the crossbar a few times while they’ve been away and are now looking forward to a good second half of the season.
The ground has been too quick for the percentage of our runners but that’s the type of horse we buy, soft ground staying types who will improve slowly and hopefully be successful eventually.
Stormy Blues ran well again at massive odds the other night at Wolverhampton, 125/1 and only beat two lengths I don’t think he’ll be that price next time, he’s entered again for Lingfield on Wednesday.
We have some nice bumper horses to run in the coming weeks namely
and Malina Ocarina.
These are a lovely bunch of four year olds and have been working well at home so the next step is the racecourse, it can be quite daunting for them first time out with the crowds and the noise etc but it’s amazing how they get used to it.
Mead Vale is a possible runner on Monday at Ludlow and we could have runners at Wincanton Thursday and Chepstow Friday.
Mead Vale Monday, 28 January 2019 – 4:30
(Four day) at Ludlow
Stormy Blues Wednesday, 30 January 2019 – 1:50
