Hi everyone, we had just the one selection yesterday after Newcastle was abandoned. The diminutive Black Corton ran his usual consistent race after 9 weeks off.

Hi everyone, we had 4 losing selections across 3 races today resulting in an 8 point loss which was painful given the progress that we’ve made recently. Our first selection Cap Soliel was well backed into 4/1 but was frankly disappointing and never really got into the race at any stage and finished a distant…

Hi everyone, our only selection so far this week was Messire Des Obeaux at Huntingdon on Thursday. He looked a picture in the paddock after over a 1000 days off the course and he was well backed into 5/1 and apparently all the right connections were on course to watch him so they obviously thought…
