Kelso tomorrow, and grrr…. Floor – Kinneston

Chilly and moist once more this morning, a bit higher this afternoon. Off to Kelso tomorrow with 4 good runners and the bottom needs to be mushy. First up is Eloi Du Puy within the opening Novice Hurdle at 12:48. He was a promising third on hurdle/seasonal debut and I’d prefer to suppose he can construct on that in an open race with situations to swimsuit.  Bruce rides and 10 run.

A pause then for lunch earlier than September Daisy runs within the mares novice handicap hurdle at 2:28, she missed a bit of labor final week however is recent and nicely now and I might hope that she will run a very good race stepped up in journey off a low weight. Danny McMenamin rides and 6 run.

Half Monitor reappears within the 2:58, having sadly unseated on the first fence on his chasing debut at Carlisle. He has achieved loads of education since then and jumps nicely at residence however, as after any UR, the main focus tomorrow will likely be on a transparent spherical. Danny McMenamin rides and 5 run.

Lastly, we run Gipsy Lee Rose within the Conditional Jockeys Handicap Chase at 3:28. She was a very good runner up at Hexham final time behind a nicely handicapped horse who duly adopted up, so she should go nicely once more as long as it doesn’t come too quickly. Bruce rides and 5 run.

Arnica additionally didn’t see the race out, he wasn’t match sufficient – barely embarrassing for the workforce horse!  However right here is Saturday’s hero Stainsby Woman again out on the gallops with Jess yesterday (and Wakool with Aimee) …


Floor may be very a lot the speaking level amongst racing individuals at current, with watering going down at Newbury, Doncaster and even Newcastle forward of Saturday’s racing, that is regardless of it raining most days. Fields have been decimated to the purpose of embarrassment at Ascot final weekend and everyone seems to be determined to keep away from a repeat. The supply of the issue is clearly the very dry summer time, situations have been distinctive however they have been the topic of a lot remark and my sympathy with the racecourses is proscribed. The most important flat programs let their jumps tracks turn into burnt, naked and bone-hard; they frequently website hospitality marquees on what was meant to be turf. From what I noticed, there have been zero makes an attempt at husbandry of that turf through the exceptionally dry situations, therefore the present issues. Bounce trainers taking care of their horses shouldn’t be getting the flack in these circumstances.
