A welcome interlude from the Kinneston blog for all readers I am sure, time to resume with a runner at Perth tomorrow and the National Hunt action starting to pick up properly later next month.  It may have been quiet on the racing front but we have been very busy here preparing a team of about 35 horses for the new season, it’s that wonderful time of year when the horses are looking great, appear really fresh and well and their time off has allowed little niggles to melt into the background – long may they remain there!  Weather wise after a grotty start to August we have enjoyed a fantastic week of warm sunshine and tonight’s forecast rain will actually be welcome on a number of fronts.   It will be good to be back in action tomorrow, Isla Pearl Fisher runs in the 5.50, Kit rides and he seems in very good form, we’ve kept him fresh since he missed his engagement at the end of July, he hasn’t seen our all-weather since but he has done masses of other work and should be fit, we just don’t want too much rain overnight so fingers crossed.  Lucy is in action today down in Wales at Bangor-on-Dee where she rides Civil Unrest in the 5.05pm.
