Monday 25 February
A cold, but good morning up the hill on Saturday, and good to see Kevin,Jo and John there second lot to see their horse Tannerman go through his paces. Everything went well, including Smart Exit, who has scoped clean this morning and will go to to Lingfield on Wednesday. Ogee and The Fonz (TF - Bangor Friday and Doncaster Sat, O - Doncaster Sat) both looked in great order, along with Grassfinch and Reyno (Ludlow Thursday) Colebrooke just went for a walk as he had his jab on Friday. He will continue to walk and trot today and tomorrow and resume faster work on Wednesday. San Telm was also scoped this morning, but unfortunately he has still ot shaken off the respiratory infection that has been struggling with. He will be on the easy list for another week. This is very frustrating because he is starting to look very well handicapped, and we could do with running him - but you just can't put them under pressure and stress when they are not well! If this job teaches you one thing it is patience!!
