Thursday 12 November
Smart Exit worked very well yesterday, with new boy Sneaking Budge, and has earned himself an entry in Chepstow next Wednesday. I have maintained for years that Smart Exit 'will be a better horse next year', and I do think that those owners that have kept the faith in him will be rewarded this time round. He looks to have finally matured, and his work has been very good. Even the sages at Timeform believe that he is still improving - so could it be that this year will be his year! Fingers crossed. Cloonacool is in fine heart and will have an entry in Ascot on Nov 20th. Christmas Twenty is also really relaxed and well, and he will head to Huntingdon on December 6th. San Telm will be aimed at Uttoxeter on Nov 22nd. Bold Conquest is bucking and kicking, and will head to either Doncaster on 27th or Southwell on December 1st. Savingforvegas will head to a mares bumper later in the month. Bonellis Warbler and Pine Warbler have both schooled well, and will make their hurdling debuts shortly. Wolf Of Windlesham heads to Cheltenham on Saturday. So it's all go and I am sure that they will all give their owners some cracking days out, and there should be some wins in them!!
