A glorious autumn afternoon here at Kinneston; warm and sunny, a lovely soft light.  Hopefully it will last until tomorrow at Perth where we have a few people coming for lunch after seeing their horses here in the morning.


And I’m delighted that we have a runner, Landecker in the 4.30, 8 run and Lucy rides.  He’s matured into a game and consistent handicap hurdler and whilst the ground being heavy, soft in places, isn’t something that I think particularly suits him it may well be more of an inconvenience to the opposition.  He was a good second at Hexham in May and whilst his fitness has to be taken on trust after his break he ran well in this race last year after a very similar preparation so fingers crossed!
