Wednesday 5 September
A quick catch up this morning as I find myself in the office for a few minutes. Kikos ran really well last week, he jumped like a buck, but just failed to stay the extra 3 furlongs. He has come out of the race in good order, and we will find another race for him in 2-3 weeks. E Major is also well after finishing fourth in Fontwell. A step up in gear, and probably removal of the headgear and he should be up to winning soon. Benefit Cut continues to impress and had his first pop over a pole today. He does everything very nicely. San Telm and Colebrooke are both in superb form. Colebrooke bucking and kicking and ST just wanting to get on with life - they are both not far off a run. Tannerman is cantering away nicely, and hopes are that the wind op has worked! Smart Exit has also just started cantering as he is a bit fresh - he is in super form as well, and the same applies to him re his breathing!
