Plenty to look forward to after Ayr yesterday, Papamoa showed improved form to finish 3rd, he is just a bit high in the handicap at present, Tipsy Dara put up a brave effort to finish 4th, she struggled to travel with seasoned handicappers on only her third start over fences, Buffalo Ballet then came a close 2nd in the concluding bumper on ground conditions that were not in his favour, it was an excellent run considering he was squeezed out and lost all his momentum a furlong from home.
No luck pointing today and when I arrived home at 4.10 I passed Lucy on the drive heading off for a momentous week, Stratford  tomorrow where she rides On Gossamer Wings in the 2.40, then Cheltenham or Sedgefield on Tuesday, Huntingdon on Wednesday, Cheltenham Thursday and Friday, Newcastle Saturday and Carlisle Sunday… We are also heading to Cheltenham for the usual “busman’s” on Tuesday and Wednesday then maybe Seeking Power at Hexham on Thursday if conditions don’t dry out too much, home on Friday, Newcastle and Kelso p2p Saturday and maybe even Carlisle Sunday, really looking forward to it all, can’t wait, dream result apart from Lucy…………. the mighty Kauto of course.
