Wednesday 27 November
Maypole Lass, who made such a wonderful debut over hurdles on just her third ever start in Leicester last week, had her form boosted nicely yesterday. Magical Skyline, who was fourth (7 lengths behind ML) in Leicester won the juvenile hurdle in Sedgefield yesterday. A slightly fortunate winner as she did look booked for second when the leader fell at the second last, she still did it nicely and gives the form of the ML's race the solid look that I thought it would. I thought before her debut that there were 4 decent fillies in the race, and they finished 1 2 3 4, so the fact that the fourth has now won, backs that theory up. ML worked nicely yesterday and is still on track for Aintree on December 7th. Colebrooke will have entries at a number of courses from December 13th. He will have multiple entries, and we will assess the opposition etc. Smart Exit will be aimed at Uttoxeter on December 20th. Omaruru will be aimed at Towcester on December 19th. San Telm, and Benefit Cut will both receive a little more treatment either side of the weekend, and we will make a plan for them when we have the all clear to crack on. Guest Of Honour will head off to Michael and Fiona's tomorrow where he will be let down as we try and find him a nice home. There is good news about his replacement - our bid has been accepted, and 'Brett The Vet' will cast his eye over him on Monday. Fingers crossed!!!!
