The yard couldn't be in better form at the moment and the three runners this week all finished in the frame with a winner amongst them too.
Running Spanish Mane over a mile at Brighton was a bit of an experiment as that trip usually stretches her stamina but the hold up tactics were carried out to perfection by jockey Rose Dawes and the pair finished fast to win by a length. Spanish was winning the eighth race of her career, including five for us, and she really is a star for the yard and her syndicate of owners. It's still early in the season so hopefully there is another one in her too, especially now we know she handles the unique undulations at Brighton.
The following two runners kept the good form going as Hurricane Kiko ran a great debut race at Newmarket to finish third behind two nice horses. He was so chilled out beforehand and seemed to really enjoy the experience so hopefully there's more to come from him.
Arpina finished second for the third time in a row, again bumping into a horse who was gambled on and obviously plotted for the race. She deserves to win a race of her own now and hopefully it's not too far away.
When the yard is in form, you hope it won't stop so fingers crossed this week's runners can keep the ball rolling.
Smokey Malone will be the first entry of the week at Brighton on Tuesday. He himself is in good nick at the moment and has form at the course too. As ever, he is dependent on there being a fast pace and luck in running at the end but I see no reason going into it why he can't run well.
Fen Tiger was entered for Thursday at Leicester in the hope that it rained this weekend as he loves soft ground but unfortunately they didn't get as much as forecast so it's still good to firm and he will be unlikely to run. After winning last time, we know soft ground is the key to him so he'll be worth the wait for the right conditions.
The Mouse King shouldn't mind conditions at Newmarket on Friday and he seems to be on an upwards curve after surprising us with a great second place last time at Chelmsford. The one mile distance seemed ideal for him on that occasion so hopefully he can carry the form over to the turf from the all-weather.
Sunset Salute is also in a claimer at Chester that day and it looks the right grade for him having not shown much last time.
