Jimmy The Jetplane was third as was Trojan Star who probably ran the best race he has for us. Sadly Milan Express pulled up.. She was never happy on the ground and it seems she is worried about her past sore shin problems.

David Bass was in this morning for two lots. We worked a few and a video can be seen here.

Bill Foylan called in third lot to see his horse Grand March while Tim and Charlotte Syder called in later to see their Kayf Tara/Seemarye gelding.

A rather thin looking Grahame Whateley called in late morning to see his horse Rhaegar.. Rhaegar is a non runner today in the bumper at Wincanton..

We have three runners today at Wincanton. Patsys Castle, Thumb Stone Blues and Rhaegar. For my thoughts on their chance please click here.

I have added Cresswell Legend to the Goffs Aintree sale which takes place tomorrow night after racing. I hope I can find somebody to buy him.. please get in touch if you would like to own him .. he is a pretty special horse.
