So the weather appears to have quietened down after a stormy few days, some extremely wet weather about but we escaped the worst of it unlike Hexham who have had an astonishing 5 inches of rain since their fixture a week ago, let’s hope it dries up enough to let their fixture on Tuesday go ahead.  Musselburgh has also escaped most of the rain and the ground there tomorrow is good and we have one runner, Dance of Fire in the 2.45, 10 run and Lucy rides.

Dance of Fire – will be ridden to get the trip tomorrow

Hmm, he was disappointing in his first two starts for us late last year and I’m not sure why, he works well and will appreciate the better ground so hopefully we will move a step closer to finding the key tomorrow, he certainly doesn’t lack ability.  Lucy also rides Leading Score in the 4.25, The Wise One in the 4.55 and Porto du Sud in the 5.25, all for James Ewart.  A long day return to Haydock yesterday where Clan Legend travelled and jumped impeccably until tiring in the final 3f to finish a well beaten 4th; either he didn’t stay or this came a little soon after a tough race at Kelso, he is bright and well today and may squeeze in a run over 2 miles later in April if conditions are suitable.

Clan Legend – I would love to take him back to Hexham but there isn’t a single race there for him at any of their nine spring fixtures….
