Our rare foray into jumps racing has had to be postponed after Huntingdon's meeting was abandoned today due to water-logging. We were due to have Clenched running over hurdles for the first time but that'll be put on hold now until after Christmas when there is an ideal race at Doncaster. Hopefully the festive period can bring a bit of settled weather and some drier ground.
Hopefully there are no weather worries this week as we are on the all-weather for all of them.
Starting on Tuesday we have Eloped having her second start for us at Southwell. We knew the trip would be on the sharp side for her last time but she blew away the cobwebs and dropped a couple of pounds in the ratings as a result. Stepping up to 1m6f on a galloping track should really suit her and I hope that she can fare well for her new owners.
We will be triple handed at Lingfield on Wednesday and another filly will be having her first run for us when Moralisa hits the track. She has shown bits of form for her last trainer without winning and she seems to have settled really well into our routine. We will learn plenty about her here but it's good to get her running for the N.E.T. Racing Club.
Before that we have Hurricane Kiko running. The blinkers have woken him up a bit too much in recent runs and he hasn't been getting home after running keen early on. We're taking the headgear off and stepping him up in trip so hopefully he can save his energy for the end this time.
Stintino Sunset completes the trio and she couldn't be in better form having won at Chelmsford last time. She is a real trier and has run well at the course before so hopefully she can get a fast pace to chase and come with a late rattle again.
Clenched is entered over hurdles at Warwick on Thursday but the ground is likely to be heavy so we'll save her for another day.
