REPORTS
JUNIPER
Juniper had her second start in a 2m3f handicap chase at Chepstow on Friday.   There were excuses for her last time out at Warwick when she pulled up so we were hoping she could take a step forward here.  Sadly things didn't get off to a great start with a standing start, something she wasn't used to and which meant that she got further back than ideal initially.  She managed to jump her way nicely into contention, however turning in she was tracking a leading group.  She galloped on home at the same pace and having jumped extremely well, finished a creditable 5th.  Adrian Heskin reported that she didn’t handle the ground too well and that she would be better suited to good ground in the Spring, so we look forward to her next run on a sounder surface.
SEDDON
Seddon lined up in a very competitive Pertemps Qualifier up at Musselburgh on Sunday.  He travelled and jumped exceptionally well from the front and looked to be dictating the race.  As they turned for home, he looked to be going very well but having missed 3 out, could just gallop on at the same pace.  He will likely come back in trip now for his next run and with a drop in class and a step back in trip we look forward to running him again.
FAIRE PART SIVOLA
Faire Part Sivola had his first run back since New years eve up at Doncaster yesterday.  We decided to freshen him up after he pulled up on heavy ground at Uttoxeter.  It was his first time up in trip in a qualifier so it was a bit of a fact finding mission.  Most of the hurdles were taken out due to the low sun which was an inconvenience.  He was a bit lit up early doors and turning out of the home straight he lost his footing and nearly came down on the bend.  From there on he lost his confidence and was never able to get back into the race with a competitive mindset.  We will draw a line through it and as he has come out of his run so well, we will look to run him again in 2 to 3 weeks time.
ENTRIES
HARRY'S HOTTIE
Harry’s Hottie holds an entry at Lingfield Park next week Tuesday in a Mares' Maiden Hurdle over 2m3f.  She ran well there in November and the track and trip suited her.  If the ground is too testing, we will look for another option which could be Wetherby on Wednesday.  She’s been in good form at home and we will need this third run in a novices’ hurdle before getting a handicap mark.
POLDARK CROSS
Poldark Cross has a couple of upcoming entries at Wetherby, Fontwell and Carlisle.  He pulled up last time out having not handled the ground too well.  He seems to have come out of the race absolutely fine and is training well at home.  We will look to run him again as soon as we get some softer ground.
GALUDON
Galudon is likely to make his yard debut in a bumper in the coming weeks and currently holds entries at Fontwell and Chepstow.  He is a big chasing type and will need soft ground so we will wait until the time is right for him.  He has some good form in the book - most notably finishing 2nd to Journey With Me in a point to point bumper last March.  We will be looking to go Novice Hurdling with him next season, so hopefully we will learn plenty about him from this bumper run.
RAFFLES GITANE
Raffles Gitane has been in great form at home and holds an entry in a Mares' Handicap Chase at Leicester next Thursday over 2m4f.  She has come out of her recent win well and we will take a look at this race before deciding whether to run her or to wait for a couple of other options later in the month.
