Wednesday May 16th
A beautiful morning in Perth.
Myself and Abbie travelled up in transport yesterday and arrived last night and settled our 4 runners into the racecourse stables.
They all seem very happy this morning and jockeys Brodie and Lilly arrived late last night so we’re up for riding out this morning.
Lilly on the Left on ‘Blue Comet’ and Brodie on the Right on ‘Benechenko’
Lilly on the Left in ‘Creevytennant’ and Brodie on the Right on ‘Quantum of Solace’.
Today we have 3 runners at Perth and 1 runner at Newton Abbot.
We run ‘Quantum of Solace’ in the 7:05 which is a 2 mile mares handicap hurdle. Paddy rides her for the 007 Partnership. She completed her first run for us at Soutwell after a long lay off and we hope to see a lot more from her today.
Our 2nd runner of the night is ‘Benechenko’ in a 3 mile handicap hurdle at 8:35. He has been ultra consistent this season and we hope for another solid run. Birthday girl Brodie Rides him and we hope she rides a birthday winner.

Our last runner at Perth is the legend ‘Creevytennant’. He runs in the Hunters Chase at 9:05. Lilly rides and she won this race on him last season. Fingers crossed she can do the same tonight.
This is the trophy ‘Creevytennant’ won last year. We have to take it back to the course before racing and hopefully we can bring it home again!!!!
We have 1 runner at Newton Abbot at 5:15 in the Bumper. ‘Imperial Elixir’ runs for Imperial Racing. Richard Patrick rides him. He has been a bit disappointing and we hope he can show a bit more on better ground.
Our runner at Perth tomorrow is ‘Blue Comet’ in a Novice Chase.
Thanks for reading.
