Stargazer with Sammi yesterday

For sale page updated

Our high class flat horse, ‘Stargazer’ heads to Newcastle this afternoon for a Conditions Stakes qualifier – can he make it 4th time lucky, he has been 2nd at the track 3 times now for us! The step back up to 2 miles doesn’t worry Phil and he must go there with another each way chance. Good luck to the Hassall family who own him with us. Our other 2 runners are both fillies – ‘Midas Maggie’ who we feel will have benefitted from her first start for us and Kilcoran who is having her first start on this surface. The forecast is set to be driving winds and heavy snow/sleet/rain so it’s not going to be the nicest of afternoons there!

Yestedays Doncaster runner ‘Richard Strauss’ couldn’t back up his Musselburgh win and a less testing track will play to his strengths in future, he goes to Catterick over the New Year period.

Tomorrow we will have KILCULLEN FLEM trying to improve our good 24% Chase win strike rate this season as he lines up for the 3m 2f Chase at Carlisle – with plenty of rain today it’s sure to be testing and it should be right up his street, he’s a thorough stayer.
