Plus 9 and dry when driving in.

Ajero winning at Kempton yesterday took our season total to 32.. the same as we had all last season…

Julie and David Martin and Dan Hall's young horse, who is a half brother to Charbel, has now won 2 of his three starts over hurdles and looks progressive.. David Bass was impressed as you can see from his post race interview..

Yes 32 for the season so far..Two different seasons as last year we were cut short and we raced on heavy ground for most of it.. This time we have been able to pick and choose..

Whatever it is so good to see the horses running so well. And the jockeys riding likewise.. David Bass even rode a winner for another yard at Kempton making it a double day for him.

I was at Ludlow to saddle Shinobi.. He too ran well under a 10lb penalty to finish second.. I don’t enjoy being second as you know, but I was pleased with his run.
