Bitterly cold this morning and due to get colder, long range forecast not good and with an exceptionally busy 10 days racing coming up I’m very concerned about disruption, hmmph.  Schooling day today despite the weather and 6 went nicely over hurdles and 7 very well over fences, all due to run soon if the weather behaves…. Two fourths at Haydock yesterday, fed up with fourths another “hmmph”, a pleasing enough 2nd effort over hurdles from Silk or Scarlet over what will no doubt prove to be an inadequate trip, he wasn’t in love with the ground either and every time I step Clan Legend up in trip he comes unstuck, bang there 2 out and then faded – back to 2 miles and fences next.
