Great racing at Perth yesterday with a wonderful atmosphere but mixed sort of day for team Kinneston;

Another Mattie before the start of the 25th Perth Festival
Another Mattie before the start of the 25th Perth Festival

Another Mattie a strong finishing 4th, Landecker shying at the start and taking no part, Rossini’s Dancer running well but only for two and a half of the three miles, handicapper has him I think, Allforthelove pulling up and Milano Magic running a gutsy race to finish 2nd in the last.20140423-F14_7114_original  Back there today where in the 2.50 we run Caught in the Act (Lucy) and Northern Acres (Kit), 12 run and the ground will be pretty soft after more rain overnight, these two both need to put recent disappointing efforts behind them.  Then in the 3.20 Humphrey Bee makes his stable debut, 9 run, he seems on good form but its a while since he ran.  In the 3.50 Lucy rides Makhzoon, 8 run, this looks very competitive and he remains on a high mark despite advancing years, then, speaking of advancing years, Jamie rides Back on the Road in the 4.55, 8 run, the soft ground might just find out his stamina though he won round the course last May.20140423-F14_7235_original20140423-F14_7287_original20140423-F14_7014_original
