Excellent racing at Cheltenham this afternoon, the day starts with the JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial at 12:40. I’ve heard a few things about the Nicky Henderson filly, Never Adapt who was impressive on her only start in France. Snapped up by JP Mcanus soon afterwards, her work at home has been very good. Like any newcomer, Never Adapt could run green but a nice effort is hoped for. Montestrel co...

Today is the start of the three day Cheltenham November meeting. Some great racing is on offer between now and Sunday. The going is given as good, Cheltenham will have done a grand job with the watering. The lack of rain is becoming frustrating now, racecourses have dried up again this week and many have firm in the description. A few tracks in the north have more sensible ground after seeing rai...

We had a good day at Market Rasen on Thursday, Aldrin won for his owners in grand style. Buzz was given a lovely ride by Charlie Hammond and won as he liked without coming off the bridle. The win was Aldrin's third from his last six starts, the horse has only run 7 times for us. David Pipe has done a great job with him. Aldrin is learning and improving all the time, he's far from the finished art...

Settimo Milanese ran like a horse that needed his break yesterday as we feared. He found the race coming quickly after Aintree, the petrol tank was running on empty. His ability and willingness kept him in contention, but Charlie wasn’t happy with Settimo from an early stage. This showed in his jumping. Settimo had been running in Ireland before we purchased him, he’ll now go on holid...

Although we’ve had no runners since Settimo Milanese excellent 2nd place at Aintree ten days ago, last week was a very busy one. I was at the Newmarket sales for four days. We said goodbye to Mountain Rescue whilst purchased some new horses. We managed to buy our number one choice for the new Northern syndicate with Donald McCain. The horse in question is called Dominating. He’s a ver...

We have a runner at Aintree today, Settimo Milanese lines up in the 1:15. Settimo Milanese has been impressive in his two wins for us, in fairness those races haven't been great and this is a big step up in class. We'll find out a lot more about Settimo this afternoon. If he can be competative in a 0-130 around Aintree, we've got a smart horse. We're looking forward to a great day out.

We've got a stable morning today so no time for the normal Saturday blog.It's been a busy week. Doncaster sales Thursday, meeting up with quite a few people and buying the horse we were so keen to secure. Potentially I think Roddy could be the best we've bought. He's a stunning horse. The next ten days will also be very busy. A few runners planned and the Newmarket sales. I'll be there for the f...

The first of our winter horses runs today although it far from winter ground! Trigger Nichol should run in the 4:25 at Ludlow. We’ll check the going before we let Trigger Nichol take his chance. We need rain, it’s incredibly dry for this time of the year. Taunton have abandoned their next meeting and Wincanton is apparently 50 – 50 for Sunday. Trigger Nichol runs against race f...

Excellent racing today, Champions Day at Ascot plus three jump fixtures also take place. Champions Day comes late in the season, it’s always bit of a debate if the meeting should happen earlier in the year. It’s soft / heavy ground at Ascot, John Gosden has the big four running, Stradivarius, Lah Ti Dar, Cracksman & Roaring Lion. If the quartet win, the bookies will have taken a hu...

We have two runners today, Aldrin runs at Huntingdon in the 3:45, we then head to Kempton with Mountain Rescue who lines up in the 8:15. It will be nice to have runners under both codes on the same day. Aldrin bids to follow up his win at Southwell last time out, the handicapper raised Buzz 6lb for his efforts. Aldrin came out of the race in good form and we hope he can put two good efforts in ba...

We were due to have just the one runner this week, Included was going to take her chance at Newton Abbot yesterday. Unfortunately, storm Callum put paid to that. The ground went from good to heavy within 24 hours. I’m not sure if we’ll run Included again this year, she enjoys quick going whilst next race options are a few weeks away. We might school Included over a fence before sendin...

Settimo Milanese won nicely for his owners again on Tuesday. This 15k private buy is looking great value and an exciting recruit. Settimo won eased down by 7 lengths, he showed a sound turn of foot in the process and put the race to bed in a few strides. How good Settimo Milanese is we’ll find out at the end of the month, we have race options at Cheltenham & Aintree. Long term he’...

We have our first runner and likely only runner of the week this afternoon at Southwell. Settimo Milanese runs in the 3:25, Charlie Hammond rides once again. Settimo Milanese won by 29 lengths on his second start for us. The win looked impressive but we’re not sure if the race fell to pieces or our horse caused it to. We’ll learn a lot more today especially with the likes of the smart...

Aldrin won cosily for us and his owners at Worcester yesterday. The win wasn’t unexpected despite his big odds of 16-1. Buzz opened at 25-1 on the racecourse. His owners helped themselves to the fancy prices. Aldrin needed his first run back as mentioned on here, he’s a big horse that takes plenty of work to get fit. Buzz has a nice engine, he’s also the best-bred horse we&rsquo...

We have our first runners of the week this afternoon, likes a bus, two come at once. Mountain Rescue runs first in the Silver Cambridgeshire at 5:15. Mountain Rescue missed out on running in the main Cambridgeshire race by just two runners. The Silver version is still a valuable contest though with 50k up for grabs. Mountain Rescue didn’t run his race at Leicester last time out, the ground ...

Despite having just, the one runner this week quite a few things have been happening this end. Leoncavallo was a good 2nd on his chase debut, it was 30 lengths back to the 3rd place horse. Leon ran to round 140 but was outstayed by the Nicky Henderson horse as we thought he might be over 2m4. Leoncavallo isn’t the biggest horse in the world and isn’t bred for chasing. I’d be wor...
