Summer racing this weekend at Cartmel and Kelso

By | 2018-05-25T20:29:37+00:00 May 25th, 2018|

Another lovely day and good to be back on the yard to catch up after a long week at the Sales.  Delighted with our purchase Manetti, like him even more now he is here, a little sad re our two departures but they sold well and it is important that we develop our business model to [...]

A special winner at Hexham last night with Andhaar rolling back the years to win the staying handicap hurdle in good style, the Bissetts have put a lot of care and attention into bringing their old favourite back to form and it was wonderful to see it all come together.  In the same race Frankies Promise [...]

A winner! Hexham & Sales coming…

By | 2018-05-25T20:30:07+00:00 May 21st, 2018|

Delighted that Allthekingshorses won the NPPA Conditions Race at the Border point-to-point yesterday, sent off the outsider of five he stayed on strongly to win what may well end up being his final race in good style - great for Jamie to bag another winner and keep him hungry for more! Allthekingshorses (Jamie) And [...]

Glorious weather so far today, blue skies and sunshine, a little cooler and will be late back from Perth tonight so a quick preview of our five likely runners tomorrow, ground given as on the easy side of good still and will need to remain that way for them all to line up. Koala Keel [...]

Fine weather, warm and sunny and conditions drying out at Perth ahead of their two day May meeting which kicks off tomorrow evening, we have 7 declared runners on ground that I hope won't end up any quicker than good otherwise we may end up with a few less. We start with Moore's Novelty in [...]

Hexham, Perth then Sales Season

By | 2018-05-11T21:51:05+00:00 May 11th, 2018|

Fine weather this week, a bit cold but bright, breezy and the odd shower.  Down to earth with a bump at Kelso on Wednesday with neither runner making the frame despite me believing they had good chances; as I feared the ground was a bit lively for Always Tipsy – he just jumps a bit [...]

Old Season – New Season & Ayr tomorrow

By | 2018-05-11T21:40:56+00:00 May 6th, 2018|

Lovely warm late spring day, nature bursting into life and the National Hunt break flew past in a flash… what has changed is the ground; I suspect Hexham broke the record in going from “waterlogged in places” to “watering” in the space of 10 days – the trick now is not to allow frustration to [...]

Perth today and Perth yesterday

By | 2018-05-11T21:30:05+00:00 April 26th, 2018|

Cool again today, blustery showers and ground at Perth much softer than anticipated, much huffing and puffing but its been an exceptionally long and wet winter followed by a cold and slow spring so it is what it is and we have five runners on soft/heavy in places today. Christmas in USA We start [...]
