Movers And Shakers
Tuesday - and the adjusted handicap ratings for last weeks (up to Saturday) runners are published, and this weeks movers in the charts were: SAN TELM +9 (126), GRASSFINCH +6 (119), COLEBROOKE -5 (120), SMART EXIT -2 (103), JUSTAZIPPY -1 (118). Just about what we expected, although ST has probably gone up 1 more than we thought, but saying that GF is 1 lower! Pleased with the -5 for Colebrooke as well! Gives us a chance! The first three in Smart Exits race on Friday have gone up 17lb,8lbs and 8lbs - which just goes to show what a tough task he had off top weight!! His time will come and we may not have to wait long!Colebrookes targets have not changed, and San Telm is still on course for Cheltenhams open Meeting.Grassfinch could head to Ascot next off that mark. Work morning on a Tuesday, and Tannerman has worked first lot and earnt himself an entry in Southwell next Monday (12th). He will also be entered in Huntingdon on the Tuesday (13th). We will assess the state of the opposition and ground before making a decsion as to where he runs. The Fonz (this mornings workmate) will also get an entry in Soutwell (0-130) where the ground is currently Good, which will suit both.
