Monday October 30th
Another brilliant day. You could say we were unlucky loosing the bumper yesterday in the stewards room but it just confirms that we have a nice mare on our hands in ‘Grageelagh Girl’. She travelled through the race like a good horse and some very slight interference just before the line caused the turnover in the result but it takes nothing away from her outstanding performance.
‘Aye Aye Charlie’ ran a lovely race over hurdles for he first time. He travelled and jumped well and stayed on strongly at the end to be a solid 3rd.

‘Lovely Job’ was unlucky as they took all the fences out up the home straight due to the sun causing a big shadow on the fences. He is such a good jumper that we really needed the fences to stay in. He still battled on to be 2nd so we were very happy.

A lovely morning at the yard……
Today we have 2 runners at Ayr.
‘Global Stage’ runs in the Maiden hurdle at 1:30. He is in great form and we are hoping for a big run. We wish the Yes Know Wait Sorries the best of luck.
The stunning ‘Global Stage’.
Then we run ‘Socksy’ in the 2:40 which is a novice handicap chase. She as taken to fences really well and she will handle the ground and trip so a solid effort is what we are looking for. Paddy rides both.
