Friday 7 December
Justazippy is declared to run in Sandown tomorrow. She faces 9 rivals in the mares handicap hurdle with Denis O'Regan the owners choice to do the steering. I think the step up in trip will suit, but in Sandown and on ground described as Soft, Heavy in places I would not be so sure,although she is talented, and should run well! I am hoping that the front page of todays Daily Mail is wide of the mark, as it states that the next week will be the coldest for 20 years. If that is the case then there will not be too much racing next week, which will scotch plans for Colebrooke (Huntingdon Thurs) and Benefit Cut (Huntingdon Thurs, Bangor & Cheltenham Fri). I am looking forward to watching work again tomorrow morning - it has been a busy November, with two trips to Twickenham and a weekend in Cheltenham!!
