Regrettably not enough rain overnight at Hexham so Makhzoon pulled out this morning and for same reason no declarations at Kelso all of which leaves me feeling rather agitated, horses seem fit and well so desperate to get going but patience required, grr.  Murky here this morning, plenty of work for the horses and schooling nicely over the baby fences were Makhzoon and Little Glenshee, over hurdles Frankie’s Promise, Standintheband and The Flaming Matron.

Lucy has a few rides on Sunday, Lillieoftheballet in the 2pm, Bright Abbey in the 3.45, Laybach in the 5.15 and Kalanissa in the 5.45, not sure if I will go or watch on telly along with the excellent card from Longchamp which I rarely get a chance to enjoy.
