Grand National Day
All eyes will be on Aintree but we are four handed at Sedgefield and Wolvs today – its also the Bedale point to point just up the road from our new place.
Moscow Presents is favourite at Sedgefield in the 3m 3f handicap hurdle, he didn’t like Hexham last time but is still well handicapped enough to get his head in front if on a going day. Sakhee’s City runs in the same Race as Rocky Two, and he will strip fitter as its Rocky’s first run back. ‘Sam’ is also much higher rated but he has to contend with a favourite rated about 10lb higher than himself which wont be easy. Adam Nicol is looking forward to riding him again today and tells me he feels fantastic at home. He is a great tall, powerful gelding and is going to make a really smart chaser in time.
The camera was busy yesterday, here are some shots from the horses working in the school and at their bedtime!
The horses all seem incredibly happy in their new barns and love looking at the view down the fields.
