Circumvent misses out at Ayr

Carlton Blue has ran two disappointing races but continues to work well at home and we are putting the poor runs down to the soft ground.

Dance With Dragons is in good form and may contest a race at Chantilly.

Kalicamix, after his successes in Deauville may be sold to Hong Kong.

Bluegrass Blues race a good race at Newbury from a poor draw and everybody was pleased with his run.

Keep The Dream runs on Wednesday at Kempton, he has a poor draw but will probably need the race anyway.

Puteri Nur Laila runs at Folkestone tomorrow, she continues to work like a winner at home but has been disappointing on the course, blinkers have been fitted this time.

Don Libre has come out of his Kempton race well, we will probably keep him to that sort of race for the time being.

Kaiser Wilhelm runs today and is probably best watched.

Silverheels was disappointing at Newbury, he broke too well and ran far too free.

Hunt A Mistress and Joy to the World both finished 2nd last time out and are progressing well.

Circumvent ran well enough at Ayr to be 2nd in the Listed race despite the very soft ground. He is a fantastic horse and normally earns money where ever he runs.

The yearling sales are upon us and we have decided not to go to Goffs in Ireland as they have a greatly reduced catalogue which means because of the strength of the pound, they are selling the best horses at Newmarket. You also have the added cost of the transport from Ireland to Whatcombe. Having said that, 2 of 3 that we bought in Ireland last year have won and the other will win.

I noticed they had an all Arab race meeting at Newbury yesterday. The way things are going they will have an all Arab owners day in England soon. Lets hope there are a few gaps at the sales so that the indigenous population can get a look in!

Don Libre wins again!

We have been plagued by poor ground all year, chopped, loose, soft, making results on the course difficult to predict.
Carlton Blue has only had his ground twice this year, he needs fast ground.
Don Libre kept us out of the cold column with an easy win at Kempton at the weekend.
We run some promising two year olds this weekend, the most forward of which is Bluegrass Blues.
Gifted Girl, Swingland and Circumvent are all back in full work and going well.
Flashbang has her usual bad draw but is fit and well and should go close, worth an each way bet.
We have bought our first yearling by Verglas, please see the video on the horses in training page.
