It’s the start of the Cheltenham November meeting this afternoon. Looking at the card today compared with Saturday & Sunday, it’s certainly gets stronger from the weekend. Nothing really stands out from a punting point of view on Friday. Kapstadt in the 1:50, should give you a run for your money. Vision Des Flos ran very well the other week and might have more to come now he&rsqu...

We’ve not had any runners this week but that should change soon as most of our Winter team will be on a racecourse in the next couple of weeks. Trigger Nichol is ready to make his debut for us, he’ll likely start in a bumper. Ilovemints has quite a few options at the end of the month whilst Newt, Audacious Plan & West Of The Edge will also be running in a few weeks’ time. B...

We completed our recent shopping spree for new horses this week at the Doncaster sales, Henry Smith was secured for £22,000. Henry Smith is a smart flat horse, but will go jumping next year. Our new recruit handles all ground and travels through his races very strongly. He looks one to go to war with in the Spring of 2018. Shares will be available. 95% of the time when on the lookout for ne...

Our Winter team of horses have got off to a great start. Audacious Plan followed up his Huntingdon win 4 weeks ago by winning the prestigious Durham National at Sedgefield on Thursday of last week. The Durham National is a £30,000 race. It was a fabulous win, the Audacious Plan owners had a brilliant day. The horse cost just £8500 and he’s already won owners over £25,000 i...

We had the fantastic day at Sedgefield on Thursday, Audacious Plan won the prestigious £30,000 Durham National. It was fantastic to win another big race. Brian Hughes gave AP a brilliant ride, they looked in complete control from the word go. Days like these live long in the memory. We’ll keep trying to take on the big owners and hopefully beat them. Audacious Plan cost just £85...

We have two runners this afternoon at Sedgefield. West Of The Edge in the 2:35 & Audacious Plan in the Durham National at 3:10. West Of The Edge makes his seasonal debut. We start over hurdles rather than chasing, it’s a nice way to blow the cobwebs away. WOTE is very well but the going will be a worry for him, he’s never finished in the first 3 on good ground. West Of The Edge lo...

It’s been good to see some smart National Hunt prospects run this week. One such horse was Ravenhill Road trained by Brian Ellison. He made his hurdling debut yesterday at Sedgefield. An Irish P2P winner and winner of two bumpers, Ravenhill Road made no mistake jumping in public for the first time winning by 23 lengths. The horse looks classy, he tanked through the race and jumped like an o...

Ridden by Charlie Hammond, Audacious Plan won by 12 lengths, there was never a moments worry and some tidy bets we’re landed by his owners. AP was the first of our ...

We head to Huntingdon this afternoon with Audacious Plan who runs in the 4:50. Our sponsored jockey Charlie Hammond takes the ride. Audacious Plan ran a very good race on debut for us 9 days ago at Uttoxeter. We bumped into a well handicapped horse on the day that carried 16lb less than AP. It was 30 lengths back to the 3rd place horse. We run again quicker than we would like but we don’t ...

It’s good to see decent jumps racing this afternoon and some familiar names making their seasonal debuts. Finian’s Oscar would be the standout horse on show. The Colin Tizzard trained, dual Grade 1 hurdles winner lines up in 3:05 at Chepstow. Finian’s Oscar makes his chase debut today, you would expect him to make high rank over a fence. He’s already won a p2p and could de...

Audacious Plan ran a lovely race on debut for us on Sunday. AP finished 2nd beaten a length and 30 lengths clear of the 3rd place horse. Giving 16lb to the winner "Lunar Flow" who was very well in turned into an impossible task. We were delighted with the effort, it was Audacious Plan best run for two years and he’ll be a lot of fun for his owners this Winter. We head to Ludlow today with ...

We have a runner today in the 4:35 at Uttoxeter. Audacious Plan lines up in the 3 mile chase, Sam Twiston Davies takes the ride. Audacious Plan is the first of our Winter team to run, he’s a new horse to us and makes his stable debut. Tony “as we call him” has some smart previous form but lost his way. He was a cheap buy at £8,500 pounds but sometimes a break and change of...

The flat racing still takes centre stage at the moment. To be honest I’m ready for the jumps season now and I’ve not really kept my eye in on the level for the past few weeks. There’s good racing on offer today, some valuable flat races with up to £250,000 up for grabs. The 2:40 at Newmarket looks to be the highlight of the day, Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes. Persuasive look...

I visited the yard of Alastair Ralph this morning, Alastair is based on the Shropshire / Worcestershire border. Trigger Nichol is in pre-training with Alastair and his team. Once Trigger Nichol reaches a certain level of fitness he’ll make the move to Dr Newland’s. Most of our horses in training with Dr Newland start off with Alastair. The horses always come back looking very well and...
