Thursday 18 April
Benefit Cut seems fine after his win on Tuesday. Timeform are impressed, giving him a rating of 118+ and the comment of 'more to come'! Benny is a smashing horse for the future, and I can't wait to see him jump a fence!! Talking of Benny, I may have to pop out to Ireland in a week or two to have a look at another member of his family, so if anyone wants a nice prospect then get in touch!! Tannerman has his 2 entries in Towcester on Tuesday, and at this stage the handicap hurdle looks the preffered option. It is a conditional jockeys race so hopefully we will be able to secure the services of Brendan Powell for him as well - he only has 3 more wins before he loses his claim!! Smart Exit has come out of his race in good form, just not in Stuarts good books after his 'assault' after his run. There are a couple of options for him early next month if there is still a bit of juicy ground about - if not he will head off on his holidays. The photos of him (left) are here with the kind permission of Toby Connors.
Butter Wouldn't Melt - and Exit has an innocent look about him as well!!
Exit and Jamie Moore =- whos theory on why Exit kicked Stuart was superb!!
Benefit Cut clear at the last!
