A moist outdated week and the bottom is popping our method on the proper time as a lot of the horses are able to run. We’re not alone as there are 82 runners at Kelso tomorrow for what seems like a superb card with some correct aggressive racing and we now have 4 runners, the bottom is presently good to tender with good locations.
A low profile begin with two good properly bred younger fillies making their hurdling debuts within the maiden hurdle at 1.40; in the end they need to each show significantly better than their bumper type suggests however at this stage it will likely be about schooling and doing our utmost to make sure they’ve a constructive expertise – they’re Melchoir (Bruce) and Tangiers (Danny McMeniman) – 14 run.
We then run Extremely Violet within the 3.23, Conor O’Farrell rides and 9 run, he’s a humorous form of horse that we spent a lot of final season attempting to work out. Having gained his final two flat begins in France final 12 months he definitely has extra capability than he has proven thus far over hurdles, I’m unsure we fairly have all of it labored out but however he ought to fee greater in the end and I might nonetheless wish to assume he can run a pleasant race tomorrow.
Lastly we run Travail d’Orfevre within the 4.35, he gained his bumper properly previous to taking a couple of runs to seek out his method over hurdles, he completed up with a pleasant win right here at Kelso within the spring and could possibly be ok to defy this huge weight on his chasing debut – Bruce rides and 10 run.
Massively wanting ahead to be being again on the racecourse with runners, we haven’t had a runner for over 5 months which is unprecedented (don’t assume we now have ever been two months with out a runner). It might not occur once more but it surely has been a interval of transition right here with a number of new horses and a refreshed staff of employees. I couldn’t be a lot happier with how the horses’ preparation has gone; while they are going to enhance for a little bit of match health they’ve performed loads of work and appear match and wholesome sufficient to run with credit score, the proof nevertheless shall be within the operating and we can have a significantly better concept of the place we stand in 10 days time by which period we must always have had 18 or so runners… fingers crossed!
