Cold today, cloud cover so minimal frost and some selective schooling this morning.  Frosty at Newcastle for tomorrow’s card but they have the frost covers down and there shouldn’t be any problems though we can expect the ground to be soft, tacky and holding.  Being Eider Chase day it is one of their flagship fixtures and we have one runner, Presenting Rose in the 4pm, Stephen rides and 7 run.

Presenting Rose

I think she will be fine on the ground and she is fresh and well; she won her last start at the end of December and hasn’t missed any work since.  We don’t want to over race her this season so have been patient and she has done nothing but strengthen and improve so hopefully she can continue to progress.  All being well it will be back down the road to Northumberland on Sunday for the Tynedale point-to-point where we have Here’s to Harry and Afterclass as possible runners with Crawford making his debut on the latter.
