Katy on Moscow Presents

Katy on Moscow Presents

After a fantastic day at Cheltenham with Sprinter Sacre proving a brilliant highlight, we are looking forward to our next runner at Hexham tomorrow, its time for Moscow Presents to make his belated chasing debut and he is paper favourite for this 3 mile novice handicap chase. Phil and Adam were pleased with his schooling on Monday and Hexham is a good place to start novices off as many of the fences have an inviting uphill pull to them. Good luck to his Owners Nobaj ltd, their red and yellow silks may also be carried aboard Courtown Oscar in the Midlands Grand National on Saturday if he makes the cut tomorrow at decs stage.

Tara Time was only 5th yesterday, running too freely on the soft ground and not getting home on this undulating track. We have not lost any faith in this enthusiastic mare and she will be given time to get over this before returning on good ground on a flat track sometime next month. She was bouncing in the paddock and looked superb.

We love this photo of Sarah and Simon ( Mr & Mrs) walking back to the yard, Sarah is aboard Eddie as you can tell from his white tail! Simon may be on Goldan Jess, back in work for his tenth season racing. Thanks to Katy for taking it.

We took some photos of the youngsters at Dibble Bridge on Sunday, they will be making their way to Green Oaks at turnout time. Robin, our regally bred yearling by  Robin des Champs is growing into the most beautiful looking colt.

These two boys are also so growing well and turning into lovely NH  stores – Pickworth’s Scoripon colt ‘Twix’ and Avidity’s full brother, Coco.

Flat bred ‘Rebel’ ( Marmot Bay x Swiss Spirit) is the image of his 5 time winning dam. This time next year he will be learning to gallop at Green Oaks!

Lady Chapp is last to foal….here she is looking well, about 5 weeks to go before her Presenting foal is due.  Looks like she has enjoyed a good roll in the mud.

Back at Green Oaks the stables are looking great all painted out by Mark, and with the EVA mats installed.
