Lovely warm and sunny autumn morning after a stormy old week.  Wet overnight at Hexham, ground turned heavy so Landecker a non-runner, declared in the hope they would miss the rain so no runners this week and unlikely to have any entries until Carlisle on 26th Oct, a disappointing absence of opportunities for the time of year but we look like being very busy from then on.

Landecker at Perth last month, non-runner today, great picture from Dennis Penny

Having a good time here though with the yard very full and the new facilities proving a revelation, will they improve how they run, time will tell!

Lake View Lad this morning, making good progress

New recruit Moores Novelty looks like he can jump OK!
