Heavy snow this morning, plans thrown up in the air and we have had to keep our two Musselburgh bumper runners at home due to it being unsafe to travel, that’s a first, luckily Catch and Dutch Canyon left before the weather closed in and he ran an OK sort of race to finish 5th, I guess we will drop back in trip with him next time.

The Kinneston drive at 11am this morning

Let’s hope they get home before the weather closes in again and┬áplease no disruption at Haydock or en route tomorrow where we run Lake View Lad in the 1.30 on ground that will be heavy. We’ve been fortunate to find a three runner Grade Two novice chase; he goes there in great form and track, trip and ground should all suit well so fingers crossed – Stephen Mulqueen rides, he’s the outsider of the three but you know what they say……

Lake View Lad

The meeting is subject to an 8am inspection and they are inspecting at the same time for Newcastle’s Sunday fixture which looks more doubtful, the Jedforest point-to-point on the same day has already been abandoned but hopefully will be rescheduled to next Saturday.

and the M90 at 11.49am today
