Change Of Plan
Plans have been changed for both Daurica and College Ace who were both intended runners at Cheltenham this week, but due to slightly mucky scopes this morning they will both be staying at home and go on a course of antibiotics. They should both be back on the track shortly. Kikos was also scoped and the good news is that he scoped clean - the way Jardin De Vienne has been working with him, we would not have been surprised if Kikos was slightly dirty, but he is as clean as a whistle, so JDV must be on fire!! We have no idea why JDV has come alive, it must just be the sun on his back, as Stuart said this morning - 'he is just very quick at the moment'. He schooled with Sam on Monday and was brilliant - so all in all I can't wait to see him run next week. He is entered at Plumpton on Monday, and will also have an entry at Southwell on Wednesday. Important Business who also schooled very well on Monday was also scoped and he is clean so his stronger work can continue - he appears in great form.
