Gypsy Rider has come out of his race last week at Kempton very well, on paper his run was a little dissapointing but he made life very difficult for himself by being keen from an outside draw, the jockey came in saying that the horse should be dropped right back to 5f! This doesnt really suprise me as he can look very quick at home! I have taken this on board and have made the bold move of entering him right up at Catterick on Tuesday in a 5f 0-55 for amateur riders. Fingers crossed for quick ground!
Bally Gunner is due to run at Fontwell on Saturday in a 2m6f 0-100 chase for conditionals, Nico DeBoinville is booked to ride, the drop in grade and a step up in trip, plus the benefit of a run will all help him!
Elegant Olive is set to go to her favourite place, Huntingdon on Sunday, ground depending! I am yet to guarantee a jockey as Hadden is on an enforced holiday and Freddy may be riding abroad, A claimer would be a benefit as at the age of 11 near to top weight over 3m2f will be hard work for her, a few pounds off her back will help! There is a similar race at Huntingdon towards the end of September which most possibly will be her next target!
