Dull and feeling a little colder today but very open for the time of year; all being well we will head to Kelso on Sunday where the ground will be no worse than soft – we have five declared runners in an eight race card. Marlee Mourinho runs in the 12.20, Peter Buchanan rides and 11 run, so long as this doesn’t come too soon after last week I would hope that he will run better on this sounder surface.  Then in the 12.50 we run Marlee Massie, Peter again, 11 runners, hopefully he can continue his gradual progress; in the 1.50 Little Glenshee should run well if her crashing fall at the track two weeks ago hasn’t left it’s mark, 5 run and Brian Harding rides.  A pause then before we run Allforthelove in the 3.20, 11 run, Peter on board, he drops back in trip and may find it on the sharp side.  Finally Backontheroad makes his seasonal debut in what looks like an extraordinarily competitive Hunter Chase at 3.50, Jamie rides, he seems fit and well but will hopefully find easier opportunities, 13 run including Kit on Douglas Julian for Katie Scott.
