Skaters Waltz - is running on Friday in a 40,000 Euro claimer over 7 ½ furlongs. He won a 26,000 Euro claimer last time in France and we claimed him back. This time he is running at Clairefontaine and goes in there with a great chance.
Fort Berkeley - won a 26,000 Euro claimer in France, 11,500 Euro to the winner, he was claimed for a bit more than asked and we came back with 42,000 Euro.
Speed Machine - the ground turned to soft for SM and he didn’t move or run well at all.
Meritocracy - ran really well to come 4th in a 40,000 Euro claimer over 6 ½ furlongs, he did not quite get the last ½ furlong. He went out front running but the other horses would not let him take a breather to get the last ½ furlong.
Gifted Girl - ran very well at Salisbury finishing 2nd beaten by 2 lengths, she had too much ground to make up from last to first, got stopped a couple of times, then had to pull out and got beaten by a couple of lengths. The winner made all from the front and ½ furlong spread the field.
Rotherwick - ran very well at Kempton, the plan was to go out in front, he did not have enough early speed to get to the front, which could have cost him the race.
Blue Grass Blue - ran a great race at Newmarket coming 4th but the ground was too soft.
Dutch Art Dealer - ran very well finishing 2nd, he just hung slightly which cost him the race.
Kubeba - ran really well, he will come on from this race and hopefully improve again. He looks like there is a race in him.
Ssafa – is running in a fillies handicap, she works well at home, this is her first time out for us and she looks in good form.
Dutch Portrait – is going to run at Goodwood, he has come on from his last race at Kempton where greenness probably beat him and he should run really well - all being well with the draw down there.
Secret Success - also runs at Goodwood on the same day and is in great form.
Russian Reward - is a 2 year old we have always liked and may run at Windsor. He is quick from the stalls and all being well should run a good race.
Gifted Girl - is entered in The Winter Hill Stakes taking on some very good horses but she might just be back to her best so could be competitive.
Complicit - takes his chances but we think he likes the soft ground. He ran very well last time in France and we also think he is back to his best - he might be out of his depth.
Tioga Pass – is entered in the Fillies handicap at Goodwood, she is in great form and we hope the ground has no firm in the description.
