Friday 20 January
No - nobody ever says nice things about me! But All Annalena,, who ran at Ludlow yesterday paid a massive compliment to San Telm by winning readily by 7 lengths! She was running over 5 furlongs further which helped her to travel and jump, but taking all that into consideration ST did beat her 24 lengths (giving her 7 lbs) at Fakenham, so his form looks pretty smart now. ST really is a lovely horse and we have high hopes for him - let's hope the EBF Final plan comes off, as he could have a big day this season! Two runners from Fences Farm on Sunday - Justazippy goes to Market Rasen in a competitive handicap hurdle - her form was franked last week when a mare that was 16 lengths behind her at Hereford won easily at Huntingdon. Honeycreeper goes to Towcester - she pulled up last time, so hopefully will get back on track here, at a course where she has gone well in the past - she isn't very quick but she is very tough! We are looking forward to welcoming plenty of folks over to watch work tomorrow, among them a few new faces - hope the weather is kind!
