A fine day today but we’ve had a wettish few days and the ground at Perth has ended up very soft, precisely what we didn’t want for our two horses in full work.  With no other options for them over jumps for at least a month they have been declared but will most probably both be withdrawn.

This is the problem with the jump programme in the summer, you want to have good ground horses ready to run but then nature intervenes and there is nowhere to go, hence there are so few horses in training up here at this time of year. Hmmph, anyway, Andhaar is declared for the 9pm this evening, Kit rides and 7 run, this would potentially have been a nice little race for him and tomorrow Isla Pearl Fisher is declared in the 5pm, Kit again is riding and 11 run.
