Mattaking off to Fakenham
Matty has been declared to run at Fakenham tomorrow. There are just 9 runners in the race and he looks to have a decent chance if putting his best foot forward, and also always assuming that he has not been adversely affected by his last run when he fell heavily. At home he seems to show no ill effects, so we are hopeful. All we need now is for it to warm up a bit as there are plenty of abandonments due to frost - Uttoxeter and Warwick join Haydock in going by the boards this week. Let's hope we get to go to Norfolk, which strangely seems to be a degree or two warmer than the rest of us at the minute thank god!!
