Wednesday 12 November
Tuesday is the day that the Handicapper publishes his assessments of the horses that have run in the previous week. It is a time that all trainers and owners log on to the BHA website to see just what he has done to their charges. Stuart and I had a bit of a shock when we had a look to see how Ogee, College Ace, and Mattaking had been treated, as there at the end of the page was a new flat rating for E Major, who has been raised again to 77, so the form of his last run on the flat must be working out very well!! Remember, £40 per week will secure the last share in this lovely 3 yr old who will be back on the gallops on Saturday after his bug. By the way College Ace went up 9lbs, Ogee 1lb, and Mattaking 3 lbs - which are all OK, and would still leave them all on marks from which they should be capable of going close. If you are interested in 'The Major' give me a call for further information (07909 518902) - with his flat rating, and looking at the way he has taken to hurdles, he could be very exciting!!
