As predicted the weather has turned cold and frosty, no bad thing really but racing plans all a bit uncertain.  So it’s Wetherby next so long as their optimism re beating the weather isn’t misplaced,  I was hesitant to committing to an “overnighter” in the circumstances but they aren’t predicting any problems and the race conditions suit our two intended runners well.  11227978_904990242889143_5910119677390297194_oWe start with Road to Gold in the 12.25, Lucy rides and 11 run, I can’t really imagine what the ground will be like as it was heavy when we were last there in November and the back straight was under a foot of water at Christmas time.  Needs must however and Road to Gold should handle it, he has to give weight to the entire field and there are plenty of promising young horses among them but he won last time and should continue to progress stepped up in trip.12342514_905111816210319_6544243550426843051_nThen in the 3.15 we run Little Glenshee, again she has to give weight to the whole field, this is her ground, her trip and her type of track so I am hoping for a good run, she is very fresh and well and has had a minor wind operation since she last ran in December.  Delighted to be going down to Wetherby on a Saturday with the two Kinneston runners wearing the “number one” number cloths but will be tough giving weight away all round in the prevailing conditions.  After tomorrow I am hopeful that we will have a strong contingent (numerically anyway!) for Ayr on Tuesday and a few runners at Musselburgh on Wednesday…
