Ogee to Cheltenham
Ogee faces 17 rivals in what looks like a fiercly competitive (are there any other at Cheltenham) 3 miles 3 1/2 furlong handicap chase. It is good for the yard to have runners in these big Saturday handicaps, and after his recent spin around Towcester he should be spot on for his seasonal debut. Willow Wren swerves Wetherby, and may go to Huntingdon next week. Welcome to Andrew Lambert who has joined Nick Brown Racing and taken a share in Omaruru, we wish him all the luck with his first venture into racehorse ownership and look forward to a successful and enjoyable time together. Robo will have the finishing touches put on him tomorrow, as he is an intended runner on Tuesday - just can't say where, as it does depend a lot on where others are aiming to go! Kikos will work tomorrow, and if we get a dry week next week, he will go to Huntingdon next Saturday. Bobby Gee is fresh and well, and will be aimed at races at Lingfield and Leicester at the end of the month. News about the injury list, which thankfully is a list of one - Important Business, who is a Michael and Fiona Kehoes and is going on the walker as part of his recuperation programme. The vets will scan him again next month, after which he will hopefully be back to Fences Farm after Christmas.
