Ark Builders Wanted!!
It's wet now!! Warwick has fallen foul of the weather, and has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track, so no day out for Norse Wren today. Benefit Cut is fine after his run, and we will now plot a route for him. We are all thrilled with his run, even though he was beaten into second. Timeform are equally impressed by how he pulled so hard early, yet had the stamina to stay on in the final stages - exciting! Tannerman schooled again yesterday - in fact most of his days are spent jumping something! He was good yesterday, and this part of his game continues to improve - but it needs to - his form figures are starting to look like a man with a lisp narrating a novel! His options are - Dec 4th 0-95 Southwell 2m 4f, Dec 5th 0-100 2m 1f Hereford, Dec 6th 0-100 Leicester 2m. It looks unlikely Ogee will get a go this weekend with all this rain about, and we must hope that Fontwell can race next week, as the options are limited for Smart Exit (in great form) if it is lost to the elements! On the other hand, the wet weather should mean that Grassfinch gets her conditions on Saturday.
