Monday 16 April
Kikos is declared to run in Kempton tomorrow, where they will hopefully miss the forecast overnight rain. He is in great form at home, and it will be good to see him out again.Sam rides. Omaruru has been scanned today and the results were not good I'm afraid. He has suffered an injury to the top of his suspensory ligament, and will be off games until the new year at least. He will have the most up-to-date treatment on the market, and the best of care, and hopefully come back as good as ever. I will be in touch with his owners to discuss options going forward. E Major is entered in Kempton as well tomorrow and has top weight under J A McCarthy. He will need to come down the weights a bit before he is winning again - but he does go there in top form. Ogee will go to Cheltenham later this week, and along with EM and Kikos, did a super piece of work on Saturday. The Kayf Tara filly is cantering away nicely, and went very well herself on Saturday.
