Friday 18 December
Plenty of snow about this morning- makes life a little difficult, but did not stop the vet coming and scoping a few. Most clean, a couple not so good including Bobby Gee, but a course of antibiotics will sort him out before Boxing Day. Jardin De Vienne is clean and will be heading towards Folkestone or Plumpton early in the new year. He has schooled over hurdles in blinkers and was a shade sharper so hopefully they will galvanise him to a better run, unfortunately it seems as though the handicapper feels he has dropped him enough for now and has not adjusted his mark downward after his last run, and he remains on 102 - a pity as we had hoped to drop him in grade again and squeeze him into a 0-100.
