Busy Day In Berkshire
It will be a lot of fun at Newbury tomorrow, where E Major makes his hurdling debut, and Kikos runs in the handicap chase later in the afternoon, with Bahreyna declared to go in the last (but that will be subject to ground conditions). Jamie Moore takes the ride on E Major, and it would be nice to think that he can do as well as his brother Ryan, who was the last man to sit on E M on the racecourse, and he won on him - let's hope he passes on some good instructions! Sam takes the ride on Kikos who is in good form. He will appreciate the drop in trip, and should go well in a competitve little heat. A shame the ground is not a shade better, but it is about as good as it gets at this time of year. Jimmy Macarthey rides Bahreyna in the last if she runs - as the ground may be very cut up for her by then, and she is giving all the right signs at home, so fingers crossed they all run well and come back safe and sound!
