Congratulations to the Brooke family on this team effort, Mum Julia is his regular work rider up the gallops, brother Dan often rides him too.

Stag’s Leap was always travelling comfortably round this sharp left handed track , and when sent into the lead round the home bend he strode to a very nice victory for Henry. We were busy at Musselburgh and we didn’t have the best of days up there, but this did brighten our afternoon!  Pass Muster and Factor Fifty were unplaced and Istimraar 5th but not beaten far on his first start out of juvenile company. Not a good experience going to Musselburgh and not coming back with a winner, but all four horses that ran today are back safe and sound.

Tomorrow sees two of our bumper horses from last season making their debuts over hurdles: ‘Up the Bees’ in the 2 mile novice hurdle and ‘Transient Bay’  in the 2m4f. National Hunt novice hurdle.  We also have Cathedral and Perennial down at Wolverhampton so its a busy day for the yard.  Good luck to all connections and there are a good number of The Waking Ned Partnership making their way to Hexham tomorrow to see their big horse ‘Stenna’ on his jumping debut.
