Some extraordinary weather over the last 24 hours, sun, thunder, lightening, hail, heavy rain, flash floods, fog and now at last sun again and hope it stays fair for Perth’s evening card, first race 6pm and the going is soft with heavy places. Not ideal for any of our three runners but we will let them take their chances and we start with Humphrey Bee in the 8.05, Lucy rides and 4 run, he ran well on his stable debut 3 weeks ago and this is less competitive but I am not at all sure how he will handle the ground.
Then Back on the Road runs in the 8.35, Jamie rides and 6 run, again ground not ideal but he won this race last year and I am hopeful he can run well again this time, he has been busy but running well all spring. Finally Blackmore runs in the 9.05 (isn’t that trainer’s bed time?), Lucy rides and 8 run, he seems in much better heart after a break since two disappointing runs in the early New Year, trip on the short side, ground on the soft side but he’s in good order. Lucy also rides Merry Minster in the 6.35 and Quel Elite in the 7.35.
