Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing Blog 15 January 2018

Camron De Chaillac is running today at Plumpton, he has a favourites chance as he won last time out. He won’t mind the trip and the softer the ground the better. We have two entries for Ludlow on Thursday they are Sin Sin and Deauville Crystal, then on Saturday we have the stable star Speredek in the big race at Ascot. It’s a tall order but he’s earned the right to have a cut at a big prize, he’s in great heart at home and won’t mind the ground whatever it turns out to be. We have a new addition to the string, a lovely filly by the up and coming sire Arkadio, she really looks the part and should be on the track in the spring time.
