We are triple handed today- the wonderful Stopped Out at Haydock and the two youngsters Splash of Verve and Legal Advisor at Wolverhampton. These two need to step up on current form to figure but ‘Monty’ must have a great chance in a race he has been second in before, he gets every yard of the trip and will love the soft ground.
We also have runners back at Woverhampton on Saturday plus Celtic Agent in at Cheltenham in the bumper, the predicted soft ground there looking most suitable and you would like to think he would go there with a decent chance, he is a big strong horse who should relish the Cheltenham hill.
The quick ground put paid to Lady Buttons participation at Wetherby and she now has two entries at Worcester next week, in the mares and the maiden hurdles. Good looking 3 year old Episode is also entered in the maiden bumper, he is a half brother to Avidity. He is pictured below with Julie, the dark bay in the foreground.
But lets not forget our Owners Day on Sunday….its forecast to be fairly warm but there could be one or two showers mid morning, luckily we have a marquee ready to keep everyone dry. There will be a parade of horses first and we are so pleased that Niall Hannity is coming to discuss the horses on show with Phil and there should be some interesting discussion. Phil is also most relieved that he will have some help in this department!
