Ogee at Aintree
Good Luck to Mrs Robeson and Sir Evelyn de Rothschild today as they take Ogee to Aintree to do battle in the Grade 1 Novices Hurdle. Stepping up to 3 miles will suit and he should run his usual honest race (although Lydia Hislop and Jonathan Neesom probably still think he needs blinkers), but it is obviously a red hot contest.Jimmy seems to be confident according to the paper so keep fingers crossed. It is 3 years since we were there with Olney Lad - and it really is a fantastic festival - there sure are some sights on show!!
