This tree came down during second lot narrowly missing Jim in the tractor!

A stormy morning and after persevering with the first two lots in conditions verging on unsafe I decided to put third lot on the walker.  Somewhat surprisingly the ground is good to firm at Perth and they are attempting to water the home straight to take out some firmer bits (not easy in a 50mph wind), I will head up there early evening to assess conditions for myself but if they are OK we will run Makhzoon in the 5.10, Lucy rides and 13 run, he is in great form but coming back from a  break to carry top weight in this competitive handicap is likely to be a bit much for him.  Lucy also rides Sea Change (2.10), Purkab (2.45), Altnaharra (3.55) and Carrietau in the 4.30.  Looking forward to going racing again!
