THE BEAST FROM THE EAST!

02-03-2018

THIS WEEK We've had another pretty quiet week on the track with very little to report and since the dreaded 'Beast from the East' is now upon us it is uncertain whether we'll be surfacing again for the rest of the week!  We have however fortunately been able to get most of the horses out including our Cheltenham string all thanks to our brilliant team, braving the Arctic conditions up here!  So for now we'll just ride the storm and keep focusing on the excitements to come... IMG_3311 REPORTS Ruby Yeats was pulled up on her second chase start at Warwick last Friday.  She jumped off in a handy position but an early mistake put her on the back foot.  She never got into a jumping rhythm and found herself falling back through the field, eventually pulling up on the final circuit.  She is likely to switch back to hurdles on her next start. IMG_3240   Vinnie Lewis was pulled up in the Eider Chase at Newcastle on Saturday.  He took a nice position early on in this strongly run affair.  He made a mistake as the field past the stands for the first time and this seemed to break his rhythm.  He wasn’t able to hold is position thereafter and eventually pulled up on the final circuit.  He has had a a successful season winning 2 of his 5 chase starts, culminating with his smooth success in the Sussex National.  He will go for a break now and return in the autumn. ENTRIES Cold March had been declared to face 16 rivals at Newbury tomorrow, but the meeting was lost to the weather. Charlemar holds multiple entries this week and is set to make his return off a workable mark of 130.  He is a much stronger horse this season and we are looking forward to stepping him up in trip and learning some more about him.  He is in at Fontwell and Sandown this coming week, but his most likely engagement is at Market Rasen next Sunday. Guiding Stars holds bumper entries at Fontwell and Wincanton this coming week.  He ran a blinder at Worcester on his only start this season, before experiencing a setback and has strengthened for that break.  He is working nicely and we are looking forward to getting him going again. The Go Tou Man is set to have his 3rd hurdles start at Huntingdon on Sunday.  He ran a blinder to finish 5th in a competitive race over course and distance last time and should be very competitive again.  If the meeting is lost to the weather he has other options later in the month. Tierra Verde is also entered at Huntingdon on Sunday and Exeter on Tuesday.  She ran an improved race on her latest hurdle start at Plumpton last month and if conditions are suitable she should run well again.  The weather is likely to dictate where she goes.  She’s taken her last race well and is in very good form at home. Blue Valentine also holds an entry at Exeter, but is unlikely to run because of the ground.  She didn’t handle the testing ground at Wetherby last time and we will wait for some more suitable conditions for her. Rouge Vif is an un-raced gelding by Sageburg and is set to make his racecourse debut at either Huntingdon on Sunday or Wincanton on Thursday.  He is a classy individual from a good French jumping family  and we can’t wait to get him started and learn some more about him. He has plenty of pace. Ruby Yeats has a speculative entry at Sedgefield on Sunday but the meeting is very unlikely to be on. Tangoed is entered at Southwell on Monday and whether she runs or not will hinge on the ground conditions.  She is ready to make her handicap debut but better ground is important to her.  She has another option at Taunton next Tuesday, which looks more likely at this stage. Until next week...
