Thursday November 9th

Another great Bumper winner on Monday.

‘Strong Glance’ was very impressive and went away in the final furlong to take the prize easily. He is a strapping jet black Gelding by ‘Passing Glance’ and he looks to have a big future ahead. 

Owners Jess and Sam and son Harry with their homebred ‘Strong Glance’. Jess baked a celebratory cake!!!

We had a good schooling morning this morning. A few pics-

Jacob on ‘Petite Power’ who is in great form.

Paddy schooling ‘Jenny’s Surprise’ over fences this morning. She was brilliant.


Foxtrot racing came to see ‘Jenny’s Surprise’ yesterday as they have taken her on for the season.

Paddy on ‘Cheltenam De Vaige’ who heads for Huntingdon next week.

Simon on the lovely ‘Lovely Job’.

Ally on ‘Master Dee’ who has entries for the weekend.

‘Cap Soleil’ makes her hurdling debut today at Newbury. She runs in a mares novice hurdle at 2;10. Paddy rides her. This is her schooling at home.

We also have ‘Cuddles Mcgraw’ at Newbury. He runs in the bumper at 3:55. Paddy rides him. We wish them the best of luck.

Paddy has his first ride under rules today at Ludlow. He rides ‘Chilli Romance’ in the 3:30. The race is a hands and heels race where jockeys can carry their whip but are not allowed to use it. It puts an emphasis on balance and rhythm in a finish instead of relying on a whip.

Paddy pictured here with ‘Rockery Garden’ earlier this season.

No runners tomorrow.
Thanks for reading.
