Saturday May 19th

A beautiful morning at the yard.

It’s a real pleasure to be watching the horses work in the glorious sunshine. We have to thank all of our Saturday work riders who come in just because they love it. Laura has rarely missed a Saturday for the last year and a half come rain and/or gale force winds!!! Everyone will be gutted that she is on holiday next Saturday and will miss riding out but she deserves a holiday!!!!

Laura this side on ‘Mighty Leader’ and Nick far side on ‘Sissinghurst’ who isn’t far away from his first run of the season.

Laura with Fergal and ‘Mighty Leader’ who has an entry next week at Worcester in a Novice Chase.

Today we have 2 runners.

‘Luna June’ runs in a Mares Bumper at Bangor. She ran a promising but green 4th at Taunton and we hope she can build on that today. Alain rode her at Taunton and rides her again today.

Our other runner today is ‘Bells N Banjos’. He runs in the 6:35 at Uttoxeter which is a 3 mile handicap chase. Paddy rides him. He has been disappointing this winter but we hope the better ground can rejuvenate him.

Just one runner tomorrow. The legend ‘Tangolan’ runs at Market Rasen.

Thanks for reading.
