Friday 6 February
Cloonacool (George to his friends) is declared to run in the 1.15 in Newbury tomorrow. He has to give weight to some smart rivals, but his is a proven handicapper, and we are keen to see how he fares going left handed. A great day to have a runner with some quality racing on offer in Berkshire! Reyno tries to get Stuart off the mark today - he has all the talent in the world, but is sometimes a little shy to use it - those who have seen him work will testify to that! Good luck to all. Everything else is fine, Native Princess continues on the road back, San Telm is having a couple of days easy, but will be back in full swing next week. Smart Exit is going well, and should be back on track soon. No joy finding a sprinter at the sales yesterday - all the ones who had the right form profile were not suitable after inspection - we continue the search for that animal, and a new horse for a jump syndicate at Fences Farm, not forgetting a new horse for a long standing client a Fences as well! Busy times - off to Newmarket again now to show a man a horsebox - its all go!
