All of our horses ran very well this week despite not having any winners,

Deauville Crystal ran her heart out again at Ascot on Saturday, she’s only four years old and she’s nearly seventeen hands so there’s a lot more to come. she’ll probably go back over hurdles now and stay a novice over fences for next year when she should be a hard one to beat. Speredek ran at Ascot on Friday and even though he lost his winning streak he ran a blinder to finish in second. He’s a smashing horse and I’m sure there’s a big race in him to come, he could also alternate between hurdles and fences as he’s very versatile and he’s only six years old. Next week we have entries on Tuesday at Lingfield with Point N Shoot and Speronimo in the Novice Handicap Chase. On Thursday we have Georgina Joy at Towcester and Take A Break at Taunton. Greybougg could be entered at Newbury on Saturday, he loves the track and he ran well there last time before unseating his rider at the last. It’s a very competitive time of the year with all these expensive horses appearing at seemingly every meeting but we’ve got a few up our sleeve and shall hopefully continue our good start through to the second half of the season.

Speredek strikes again….

Speredek has won again at Exeter by fifteen lengths, he has now won his last four races and looks to be improving all the time. He was ridden aggressively by James Bowen, he made all the running to win easily in a competitive two mile handicap hurdle. Chasing is his game really but he’s not too shabby over hurdles either, he could run next at Ascot over hurdles or fences. Saturday we have Sapphire Noire and Mead Vale running at Uttoxeter, Sapphire is improving all the time and Mead Vale is having his first run. Next week on Wednesday we have Level Of Intensity and Take A Break entered at Hexham, on the same day we have entries at Chepstow which are Ballymagroarty Boy, Farmer Lad, Lady Mix, Point N Shoot and Camron De Chaillac.

It has been an emotional week…

Sadly we lost Lake Placid this week, he was a lovely kind horse who had a future over hurdles. It’s always very sad when this happens and the staff in the yard feel it more than most. On Saturday at Wincanton Take A Break runs and has an each way chance, he ran really well at Worcester and has the visor back on. On Sunday Deauville Crystal runs at Sandown, this mare is very genuine and loves the track. We have a busy week next week, on Tuesday at Hereford Deckers Delight is in over the fences, she’s not very big but she does jump well. Also on Tuesday at Lingfield we could have Farmer Lad race, Hes a staying type who needs soft ground and a trip. On Wednesday at Exeter we have Midnight Request, Speredek, Deauville Crystal and Atlantic King as all possible runners. On Thursday at Taunton Dharoos is entered and the strangely named Mutoondresdashorse is in at Ludlow,he’s a nice horse to go hurdling and has some decent flat form.

It’s a quiet weekend this week with only one possible runner and that’s only if we have the rain that’s been forecast. Speredek is in a two mile handicap chase at Ascot and it’s his first run of the season. He’s won his last three so let’s hope he keeps improving, he’s a lovely horse and is ready to run a big race. Monday we have Tequila Secret at Plumpton and Atlantic King at Southwell, both have each way chances and are in good form. On Wednesday Speronimo is in a handicap  hurdle at Chepstow and must be better than his last run, he’s a big horse and a slow learner. Thursday Greybougg and Nachi Falls are entered for Newbury, Nachi made a terrible mistake at Cheltenham last time which was very unlike him, for a moment we thought he’d been injured but thankfully he was fine. On Friday Deauville Crystal is entered at Fontwell in a mares beginners chase and having run well behind a good horse last time has every right to take her chance.
