Plus 3 and dry when driving in. The roads seemed as busy as yesterday

Talking yesterday ..Last minute invite to wander around some local fields with friends...the other side of Moreton in the Marsh..

Back to today..

Rosmuc Relay and Donnie Brasco had an away day.

Todays the first day of the dreaded lockdown.. Point to Pointing has been stopped during that period, but thankfully racing can continue.. And two owners are allowed to go and watch even if only for 45 minutes.. To many that will be great news for jump owners who like to see their horses run in the flesh… Long may it continue..

The weights for the Ladbroke Chase came out yesterday and for those of you who have been around for a while will recall the race when it was called the Hennessey.


We have three entries.. Imperial Aura who will not run while Vinndication and Two For Gold who will remain in the race for the foreseeable future so that we an asses how they have come out of the respective races last weekend. 

Imperial Aura will not be running in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham next weekend... It is too soon after his stunning win last Sunday at Carlisle..There are other races for him that might suit.. Ascot on the 21st of November The Chanelle Pharma Chase and then there is the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon on December 6th.

Graham Potts our vet was in for a visit..

We have two runners today. Subway Surf heads to Market Rasen while Blazon heads to Kempton and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.
