A good week so far with 2 winners and a strong 2 days at Cheltenham ahead of us. ‘Jenny’s Surprise’ showed what a genuine mare she is on Monday at Lingfield. She looked booked for 2nd turning for home but she stayed on better than the favourite and went on to win nicely. A great ride by Paddy. Simon schooling…

A solid weekend with our winner coming Friday at Sedgefield. ‘Champagne Well’ showed a great attitude to battle to the line nose to nose with the favourite. His experience probably helped in the last furling as he started to get on top and won by a length in the end. A great ride by Connor!! ‘Champagne Well’ winning his first…

I had an early start and long journey today to Sedgefield with 3 runners. ‘Troubled Soul’ is our first runner at 1:10. She won her last start at Kelso and she is in great form. The trip is a bit shorter today but we felt that it was an opportunity we couldn’t miss. We hope she can go close. Alain…

I can’t believe it’s December!!!! Christmas is coming!!!! Another wet cold morning on the gallops but we rewarded all the staff with hot bacon sandwiches which put a smile on everyone’s cold faces. A mixed day yesterday. We drove all the way to Doncaster for the last 2 races (our bumper was the last race) to be abandoned due to…

A beautiful morning in Naunton this morning. It makes up for a horrendous morning yesterday. The winds were gale force and it was pouring with rain just to add to the awfulness!!!! ‘Cuddles McGraw’ didn’t let the weather get to him!!! Paddy gave him a great ride to win the novice handicap chase over 2 miles 4. He jumped really…

A frosty start in Naunton. 2 runners today. ‘Shows Over’ set off early this morning on the long trip to Sedgefield. He has been running consistently well and we hope he can get his head in front. He is a really sweet genuine horse and deserves a win. Connor rides him in a 2 mile handicap chase at 12:20. ‘Belle…

A good day for FOB1 yesterday as ‘Ocean Cove’ got back into the winners enclosure after a good 3rd at Uttoxeter. FOB1 in the paddock before the race with Connor. That’s another 3rd in the FOB colours for Connor as he stood in the same place last weekend when ‘Liosduin Bhearna’ was 3rd in the Bumper at Uttoxeter. We don’t…

A busy weekend with 2 meetings on both days. Fergal is going to Haydock today to support one of our yard hero’s today. ‘Alvarado’ has been placed in every National he has ever ran in and today looks a super race for him. Adam Wedge rides him in a 3 mile 4 handicap chase. He seems in great form with…

A quieter week this week so far which was needed after a really hectic fortnight!! It looks busier again from today onwards!!! We had a coating of snow yesterday which was worrying as it never usually comes this soon!! ‘Alvarado’ and ‘Champagne Well’ didn’t let the lack of visibility put them off!! And ‘Jenny’s Surprise’ still looked great and worked…

They enjoyed their first Cheltenham winner…
