Wednesday 11 March
What a day the first day of the 2015 Cheltenham Festival turned out to be!! I will never forget the name Douvan!! He looks the real deal - and he could have been ours!! Never mind - we can't have them all! As mentioned I could not put anyone off the Mullins big 4 yesterday, and our eachway selections ran well. Today we would like to see Bouvreuil and Ordo Ab Chao do their bit to frank Cloonacools Newbury form. Yesterday Qwey did his part yesterday finishing a fine 5th in the Supreme, and hopefully the two today can do it as well! Back at home, Benefit Cut worked well, and is still on course for Haydock next week. Dawn Commander was ridden away, and all seemed to go well with him. Native Princess will be released from box rest next week, and resume on the walker. San Telm worked well, is in good form, and will head to Warwick at the end of the month. Good stuff again in Cheltenham today, the ones I like, and therefore are to be avoided are: Vyta Du Roc, Kings Palace,Un Atout (EW),Sire De Grugy, Sire Collonges (EW),and I had a strong word for Jetstream Jack on Monday, from a man that would definitely know - so I would be with him each way.
