Another fine quiet day and horses working well, Newcastle tomorrow where we have 3 runners on ground that is described as heavy with soft places, likely to be testing but hopefully a little rain tonight to keep it wet; we are well represented in the first where we have 2 of the 5 runners, Another Mattie with Peter Buchanan on board and Allforthelove with Brian Harding, the former shouldn’t be too far away if he handles the ground and the latter might find the trip on the sharp side but should appreciate the track and ground, on achievements to date Mattie will have the better chance.  Then in the 3.55 we run Ceilidh, Brian Harding rides and 9 run, not at all sure about the ground for her but  she’s a big strong mare and she will have progressed considerably from her debut at Haydock in November.
