Happy New Year!

It has been a fairly quiet end to 2015 and start to 2016, the heavy ground has made it difficult for my jumpers, most who would appreciate better ground, hence a couple having a go back on the flat on the all weather.
   The yearlings are broken in and going well and should be back in the yard for the end of the month if anyone fancies coming and taking a look!
Our next runner will probably be Rectitude back on the flat probably over a mile then Alanjou will have a run over fences within the next three weeks hoping to build on a nice enough debut for us at Ascot last month.


There have been a couple of disappointing runs in the last few weeks, however all of the horses have their own excuses so it hasn't got me too worried! Play the Blues definitely didn't get 1m2f so it is back to 1m for her, Moveable Asset was running against a high class field at Kempton but didn't have a huge amount of zest, a bruised foot has since come to light as well as headgear probably needing to be re applied, Rectitude was running very nicely at Plumpton but faded quickly, she did finish and has had a long layoff so we will see next time how much she needed the run.


Play The Blues runs tomorrow at Wolverhampton in the 4.40, she is in great form having been 4th last time out after a long break, as well as being drawn 2 which is a nice draw. However she will have to put up with an extra furlong to run and hopefully not get caught in traffic but I hope she will be there or there abouts.
   Hopefully Moveable Asset will run at Stratford on Thursday in the 2m Novices chase, It looks like it will be a pretty competitive race though.

The two yearling as going nicely and will hopefully have riders on board within the next 2 weeks, it was nice to see another Lawman colt in Marcel winning the racing post trophy at the weekend


Play  The Blues has come out of her Kempton race well, now is the difficult task of finding another suitable race as now, with the hindsight that her last run has probably put her spot on I am keen to find the right race as I am confident that now she is in top form. 
Moveable Asset was a bit disappointing at Kempton on Sunday, although he jumped well, as they went off very quick, he soon found himself without much company, at which point I think he gave up on trying, he has done this over hurdles before so I hope putting the headgear back on next time will help, His jumping seems good enough for him not to frighten himself jumping in visors.


It has been quite a quiet few weeks with the National Hunt horses getting into full swing with their work in preparation for the Winter season.
The Flat horses have had a little quiet spell too to re charge them for an all weather campaign.
   There are not many races for Gypsy Rider until November but Play The Blues gets underway again at Kempton next Wednesday in the 8.45 1m handicap, she has not run for a while but has gone well fresh before.

Now back on to the jumpers,
Moveable Asset 

Worcester yesterday

Moveable Asset
made a pleasing chasing debut at Worcester yesterday in the 2m Novice chase, despite finishing third of four runners, the two in front of him were pretty high class over hurdles and he jumped round well giving the impression that he should be pretty competitive in handicap company.


Gypsy Rider goes to Chelmsford this Thursday evening, I felt that the 6f trip was a bit quick for him on such a sharp track so I have upped him to a mile, one of the gallops in Lambourn is the same surface as Chelmsford and he finds it pretty easy so hopefully he can stay the extra 2f

Moveable Asset goes to Chelmsford on the 8th for his chasing debut, fingers crossed for a good experience!


We have moved!
We are now at Delamere cottage stables (confusing I know) which is much closer to the gallops with a lovely barn of 19 large stables and a covered horse walker.
    The horses have all settled in well and we hope to have great success from here.
Gypsy Rider goes to Windsor on Monday if the ground is quick enough for the 6f apprentice handicap, this may be a very competitive race but he is a tough little horse, after this he will be aimed at a race on the all weather at the end of the month for my first runner at Chelmsford.

This Week

Moveable Asset
 didn't relish the much tougher opposition with no let up in the weights at Worcester last week, he is in schooling for a debut in a novice chase soon

Gypsy Rider
Found the ground a bit soft at Chepstow so couldn't pick up over the 7f trip, I am looking for a 6f race for him as he is still bouncing from his Brighton win!

Play the Blues
 is having an easy time until the right race comes along for her

Victory Rich
are all in pre season work for the jumps season ahead!


It has been a busy week so far with three runners and a winner!

Moveable Asset
ran a very promising race at Worcester on Monday, finishing 3rd in the 2m  0-120 handicap hurdle, he jumped very nicely and should be out again soon over hurdles before going Novice Chasing

Play The Blues
was at Wolverhampton yesterday but being drawn 11 of 12 over 7f which is her minimum distance was too much to overcome, she may have a little break until they start running races to suit at Lingfield on the all weather again
