Tuesday 8 December
Rousing Rob was checked over yesterday, and it seems as though there is no major injury. He will be going to the vets tomorrow for them to have a further look and assess what we are to do. I will be going with him, and all concerned parties will sit down after his examination to discuss the best way forward. All that have ridden him are convinced he has enough ability to carry on with, but he is starting to stretch finances and patience to the very limit, so I will be having a chat with the members of The Chicheley Partnership after Wednesday. Jardin De Vienne is fine after his run, and will be aimed at another run in about 3 weeks time, when proper headgear will be employed. Rock Wren is declared to go at Leicester tomorrow. He is in great from for his handicap debut, and Jimmy Macarthy takes the ride.
