Kikos is back at Fences Farm! Thanks to Michael and Fiona for having him and doing a great job with him - he looks great - sorry about your walker though! Another welcome return to Fences today for The Fonz who has had a little chip removed from a hock which will put him off games for a bit - but at least he is home. Colebrooke seems in good order ahead of his run on Saturday - ground at Sandown is Soft, Good To Soft in places with dry weather forecast up to the meeting, so it should be OK. We are still on course to get young Brendan Powell to take his handy 7 lbs off and negate our penalty. Smart Exit is in fine form after his run, which he has taken well - 24th at Leicester is his target. Montegonian will have an entry at Kempton on Sat 14th, he has been down the jumps field and schooled again, and is very very good, we just hope he can carry it forward to the course this time! Shares are still available £500 + £20/week all inc (please - no timewasters). We still want to qualify San Telm for the EBF Final at Sandown in March - and were mindful of a lack of qualifiers over 2 miles. For this reason we were considering running him at Huntingdon next week, but feel that this will come just a bit too soon, so we will be patient and look at Bangor, Fakenham (unfortunately 2 1/2 miles) or Doncaster to get him in the final. Omaruru continues his remarkable route back to the racecourse, and is cantering away nicely. He looks amazing and has now gone round into the front yard!
