Aon For Ogee
Ogee is among 7 declarations for the Aon Chase tomorrow at Newbury. Jimmy Macarthy walked the track again this morning, and found it to be in good order, Ogee scoped clean, so off he goes. It is just one notch above his grade, but he is in great form and will be doing his best. Bushlark did her very best yesterday, which may not be good enough. Persian Forest, the half sister to our latest purchase, was very good looking, but ran disappointingly, hopefully she will improve for connections. While on the subject of family members, Niki Royal, a full sister to Kikos is entered to run in a mares maiden hurdle at Newcastle next week - again we will watch with interest. She is already the winner of an Irish point to point, so could well have a future.
