Musselburgh jumping season begins, 5 runners tomorrow and logistics part of my brain overheating. The groudn should be on the easy side of good and we kick off with two runners in the 1pm, King Brex is creeping down the handicap should enjoy the better ground and Kit rides; Goldtrek has been an enigma so far this season as I am certainly not getting the best out of her, I have changed a few things since she ran at Kelso a month or so ago, tomorrow we will find out if they have had any effect!
We then run Issabella Gem in the 2pm, Lucy rides and 10 run, this is her third quick run and I whilst I expect her to continue to improve I suspect we won’t see the best of her until she goes handicapping. Then in the 3.30 we run Or de Grugy (Lucy) and 10 run, I think he remains well treated but don’t think he will really enjoy the faster Musselburgh pace, its an open enough race though and he goes there with a good chance. As an afterthought I declared Commercial Express for the 4pm, Kit rides, 9 run. Lucy also rides Captain Baldwin in the 1.30, Angel Sun in the 2.30 and Laybach in the 4pm. Logistics now sorted and a mere 4 vehicles travelling from Kinneston to Musselburgh, Mrs A ferrying the jocks (Kit coming by train from Durham), two lorries and Trainer on his lonesome, no doubt my phone will keep me company…..
