Friday 19 July
We are all on course for Tuesday in Southwell! Tara as expected, has not been declared for the bumper in Stratford on Sunday. The ground will be very quick, and the track will not suit. Southwell always do a great job with their ground, and they will water to produce as near Good ground as they can - so we will go there. Apologies for the late news yesterday - internet problems, and also apologies to those who received the same text message twice on Wednesday evening - phone problems!! Anyway - we seem to be all up and running again - and I will give everyone a call on Monday to confirm Tara's declaration and sort out the badges. Howard Cooke popped in yesterday to have a look at his horses, and we look forward to seeing Martyn and Terence tomorrow to see Benefit Cut, San Telm, Smart Exit and Omaruru. Those that are doing anything more than walking exercise will do it before breakfast due to the heat!!
