Monday 27 July
Dawn Commander is declared to run in the 8.10 in Worcester tomorrow. From an initial entry of just 10 - 9 have been declared, and he will be giving 5lbs and upwards to everything else in the field. Stuart has decided to enlist the aid of cheekpieces to help DC travel in the early stages of the race, which over 2m 7f is a bit shorter than ideal, but there are no other options for a stayer off of his rating. DC appears to be in great heart at home, and a good contingent of his owners will make their way across to Worcester tomorrow night. After the weekend rain, Stuart will take the opportunity to school a few tomorrow, and we will have a few owners in to see their horses have a pop up the hurdles.
