Pendil Novice Chase
Cloonacool takes his chance in the Pendil Novices Chase in Kempton tomorrow. 5 run, and if he stays, he will run very well - unfortunately we won't know that until we try. He shows plenty of speed on the track, and if he does see out the extended trip, he could be a very good horse indeed. Tomorrow we find out! I have arranged a private facility for members attending. This is called The Lounge Bar, and overlooks the Parade Ring. There will be soup and a roll available, and a pay bar. The Bar will be provided FOC if we exceed a spend of £250, so whatever you do - get your drinks here, otherwise it will be costing money - should be achievable!! Badges are to be collected from the Owners Entrance as ever, and they will point you in the direction of the box. Good to see Pillard run a really nice race to be second in a Warwick Juvenile Hurdle this afternoon. He was 5 lengths behind Sneaking Budge in Sandown, so his run this afternoon, gives SB's form a really solid look. He has had his bandage removed this morning, and Stuart reports his hock to look much better. Good luck to connections of Last To Leave who makes his racecourse debut in a Southwell bumper on Sunday.
