Wednesday 3 February
Christmas Twenty is declared to run in Towcester tomorrow, and Brendan Powell rides. Pulled up on his last start over 2m 4f in Fakenham on New Years Day, CT is dropping back to 2 miles and will have cheekpieces on for the first time. This is a talented horse, and when it all clicks he will win his fair share! Tomorrow is just another step along that path - but saying that - if t clicks tomorrow, he could run very well. Cloonacool was just a little stiff on Monday, and had a session of light therapy yesterday on a hind leg - he will be fine. Sneaking Budge remains the same, he too had a bit of light therapy on his swelling, but that didn't seem to touch it - although Stuart reports a small change in it this morning.
