Cheltenham Here We Come
Important Business runs tomorrow at Cheltenham. This is the first runner on the hallowed turf of Prestbury Park for Nick Brown Racing, so let's hope we do ourselves justice.IB runs in the 2m 5f Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle at 3.35, and we would hope to run well. The trip will suit having not stayed a stiff 3 miles last time, and going left is preferred, and being a boys race, and having one of the best conditionals in the country in Sam, can only be in our favour. Saying that it is very tight, so fingers crossed.Bobby Gee is also entered there on Sunday and the way things look, he will take his chance, he worked well again this morning, and although it will be a big ask first time out this year, he may be declared to run. What a thrill for his new owners to have their first runner at Cheltenham. E Major schooled over hurdles this morning for the first time - and was electric, Stuart was still having a good blow when he phoned me to tell me how well E Major had gone. They will press on with him now, and he should be making his hurdling debut shortly.
