Even though we only have a small team for the all-weather season, it is good that they are keeping the show going with some good efforts.
Heer's Sadie ran her best race for a while when third at Lingfield last week and the step up to one mile looked to be no problem to her. She should win a similar race this winter.
I'm happy to report that Engrave is fit and well again after her short break and she'll be back running for the N.E.T. Racing Club this Thursday at her favourite track, Chelmsford.
She lost her form over the summer but that means that her handicap mark has fallen and she is off a rating she should win off now. She usually needs the run after a holiday as she is a stuffy horse but she has done enough work to go well this time.
It's an amateur jockeys race but our usual rider Ross is banned on this occasion so we hopefully have the services of 12-time Champion jockey Simon Walker so there will be no excuses from the saddle.
