Tuesday 30 September
Searching For Showers
Officially the driest September on record - it can end now! Horses ready to run, so we need some ease in the ground for most of them. For this reason, Cloonacool has been entered in 2 races in Stratford on Monday. A Maiden and a Novice hurdle, with the 2m 3f novice looking like the best option of all the 4, but only if we get the rain. There is some forecast, but how much?? We will have to wait and see! Benefit Cut will take a trip down to Lambourn tomorrow, where Brendan Powell will give him a pop, and a cgood swinging canter - he will enjoy his away day! BC could head either to Cheltenham later this month, or Aintree a week later, with Aintree possibly looking favourite - but a lot will depend on ground again. Maypole Lass will skip Bangor on Thursday, and we will carry on with the original plan and head to Ludlow next week. She seems in top form!
