Fine weather this week so far, forecast not great but we’ve had a productive time so far with Caught in the Act, Allforthelove, Gold Opera and Always Tipsy working nicely on the “horseshoe” gallop this morning and plenty of others out schooling, cantering about the farm and working on the all-weather of course. Tomorrow at Carlisle we run Bertie Milan in the 4.30, 7 run, Lucy rides and the ground is heavy with gales, rain and hail forecast. He won this race last year, wears a first time visor and is back down to the same handicap mark so needless to say we are hoping for a decent run, plenty of tough enough opposition though.
Last weekend seems a while ago now but a productive time at Wetherby on Saturday with all three of our runners making the winners enclosure though one did arrive there rather later then the first three! Backontheroad didn’t really get into a rhythm in a competitive race at Musselburgh on Sunday but should be seen to better effect back there next week all being well.
