Friday 16 December
Sam was in this morning and schooled a few. He gave Colebrooke a jump up the hurdles a couple of times and really got the drop of him. Jamie Moore really has the measure of the little fellow, but with him out injured Tom O'Brien took over at Fontwell last time, and didn't get quite the same tune out of him. You really need to grab hold of his head and make his mind up for him, which Sam learnt this morning - so it was a very worthwhile exercise as it looks as though he will be doing the steering on Monday, when, judging by current going descriptions and weather forecast, Colebrooke will be off to Bangor On Dee. Sam also schooled Montegonian - who went very well upsides - but will unfortunately be unable to take the ride when Montey makes his debut at Wetherby on the 27th as he will be in the middle of his ban. We will use the best jockey available. To go to Wetherby as an owner call 07909 518902 - shares just £20/week (all inclusive)!
