Tuesday 23 October
Classic Ben heads to Worcester tomorrow for his second chase start. His debut was very acceptable, in a hot heat, over an inadequate trip, but he jumped well, and will have learned a lot. Tomorrows trip of 3 miles is much more suitable and we will adopt slightly different tactics, which we hope will work well. he is in great form, and Ciaran, who schooled him this morning, rides. A Little Chaos heads to Fontwell in her second bumper. Dropped in trip she should go well. Lilly's Arc will be declared in Southwell on Thursday. She needs to run, and this will be a good starting point. After this run we can see if she stays in Mares bumpers, or heads off over hurdles. I will be heading off to the sales tomorrow, and then down to Cheltenham on Friday and Saturday, so a good few days coming up!! Hopefully we will get some proper rain soon, as the soft ground horses are very close to being ready to run.
