EXCITEMENT HAS STARTED FOR THE NEW SEASON AHEAD…

15-07-2016

NEWS: Excitement is definitely building for the coming season with things starting to get busy at the yard. More horses have been returning from their breaks, new staff have started and we've been extremely busy making general improvements around the yard which hope to show you all on your next visit. Last week we reported some intended runners, but due to various reasons we haven’t sent out a runner since Sporting Milan’s win at Worcester in the last week in June. ENTRIES: We have 4 intended runners over the coming few days; Jack Bear has been declared to face 11 rivals at Haydock tomorrow evening (8.35). He won impressively on soft ground at Nottingham on his debut for the yard at the beginning of June, but missed his target at Newbury last Thursday because the ground became too firm for him. He remains in good form at home, will get his favoured soft ground and goes to Haydock with a favourites chance. Jamie Spencer takes the ride and should suit him well. The main danger is likely to be the Simon West trained Brandon Castle. Polstar has been declared to run at Newton Abbot on Sunday (3.45). This will be a slight drop in class whilst he steps up 2 furlongs in trip, which should help him recapture his form. The race should be his easiest test this season, though he still remains above his last winning mark. The ground and track should suit and Harry Teal claims a valuable 10lb again. Polst is working nicely at home and we are hopeful he can start moving back in the right direction. Ahraam is entered in a 1 mile handicap at Nottingham on Tuesday. He was entered to run over hurdles last week but we decided to go here instead. He hasn’t run for the yard yet, so this will be a bit of a fact finding mission. He has strengthened well since joining us as well as leaning to relax since he joined so all things considered we're hopefully he can be competitive off a mark of 57. Sporting Milan holds entries at Worcester on Thursday and Uttoxeter on Friday. He managed to win by a neck at Worcester on his handicap debut on 29th June and has been raised 10lb for that. Sporting and the 2nd horse finished 28 lengths clear that day so the rise could well have been worse. He is an improving horse who is progressing physically and mentally all the time, so we’d be very hopeful he would be competitive off his new mark of 99. We will look at the entries before deciding where he goes. Until next week. All the best, Harry
