I'm pleased to say the we have a full house of horses in the yard currently with a mixture of some running, some on holidays and others in pre-training. Of those ready to run we have about ten or so with more planned to hit the track from early January.
I had hoped to make a flying start at Southwell last week as the course held its first couple of fixtures for the year but things didn't quite go as well as I had hoped. None of the horses were disgraced though and the likes of Limerick Lord and Go On Gal will be a bit sharper for next time and should be in for another successful winter at the track.
We just have a trio of entries for this coming week, starting with Wilson at Lingfield on Tuesday. His best run yet for us was last time at Kempton which was also his first go on the all-weather. He showed that day that he handles the surface well so there's no reason why he shouldn't build on it and run well again despite a wide draw.
On Wednesday we will be making a rare visit to a jumps track with What About Barb in the bumper at Warwick. She was bred by fellow Newmarket trainer Stuart Williams who doesn't have a National Hunt licence so he kindly sent her to us to train. It's always hard to know how you will run in this type of race as most of the others are unraced too but she is pretty fit and will hopefully enjoy the experience.
Completing the week will be Oud Metha Bridge at Kempton on Friday. He has really come back to form recently and his third place last time was a very solid effort and he helpfully went down a pound in the ratings too. He doesn't have much room for improvement off his current handicap mark but he will most likely give his best and can hopefully be in the money again.
If you haven't done already, don't forget to check out the latest syndicates we have available in a wide range of horses on our OWNERSHIP page. Spanish Mane is proving extremely popular whilst shares in the other two fillies are selling all the time so don't miss this chance!
