Thursday 2 October
Decision day yesterday. Cloonacool will head to Stratford on Monday to contest the 2m 3f Novice Hurdle. At the moment Brendan will ride. San Telm will not take up his engagement on Sunday - he needs just another week/ten days to put him spot on. Maypole Lass will go to Ludlow on Thursday - 11 entered, and it looks like a nice way to start the season and test her handicap mark, she appears in fine form at home. Jockey bookings are not confirmed for her as I type this, but we will know more in a day or two. Benefit Cut thoroughly enjoyed his away day yesterday, and has come back safe and sound, and ate up last night and this morning. He will head to Aintree over 2m 4f later this month.
