4th December 2021

Plus 4 and dry when driving in.

Good old (young) Voyburg.. You saved the day when winning the first at Exeter yesterday..

A winning first for many of his owners.. The Peter Kerr run KBRS The Ten Sages..Geoff and Carol Bailey, Rosemary Charrington, Paul and Sue Baker, Geoffrey Williams, Norman Carter, Cilla Wills, Paul and Suzanne Higgs, Allan and Sally James, John and Pat Lee, Peter and Thelma Leslie, Iain and Angela Bell, Gwen Meacham and David and Fran Ratcliffe..

Sadly only Norman Carter, Cilla Wills and Paul Higgs were present for the great win..Anyway they enjoyed their moment, as did Chester Williams the winning rider.. Chester had a great day winning 3 of the first 4 races.. Chester also looked after Voyburg when he was working for me last season.. so all in all good news.

The rest of the day was not so productive.. Bobhopeornohope struggled with jumping Sandown’s bigger fences and finished 4th.. if only he had jumped better he would have gone close as he was only beaten about 7 lengths..Fair Frontieres was hugely disappointing..Thruthelookinglass ran green and showed enough to suggest that he will be fine when he learns about life and he strengthens up..

Saturday morning and another day on the road..Aintree..

David Bass, Ciaran Gethings and Harrison Beswick were all in the morning. We jumped Party Fuzz, Mr Grey Sky, Inca Rose and Sayadam.

David Molineux was here third lot to see his KBRS horse Firth Of Gold

Garry and Tracy Betley were here to see their KBRS horse Phantom Getaway

Simon Edwards was here to see his KBRS horse Percy Veering

Two runners today.  Imperial Aura heads to Aintree and Mat and Rockys Treasure head to Wetherby..Tomorrow we run Pipesmoker and First Flow at Huntingdon and for my thoughts on all their chances please click here..

We normally do owner videos on Saturday morning but today they will come as voice messages..

To end the week on an email sent by Alex Turner...
