On Monday our only runner was STONE ROSES at Windsor. Again she proved disappointing as she is failing to transfer what she delivers on the gallops in the morning on to the racetracks in the afternoon. She was held up in the last trio and was ridden, but could make no progress two furlongs out. Hopefully with another winter under her belt she will strengthen and mature and she does still look quite weak.
On Tuesday NAM HAI took his chance at Leicester. He raced prominently and was ridden over three furlongs out. He weakened in the final furlong and may have just needed the race as he has been off the track since June. He is Horses in Training sales bound, so hopefully we will get the opportunity to run him again before then. In the evening AROUSAL again failed to perform at Kempton. Held up in touch, she was asked for her effort on the inner two furlongs out. She made no real progress and finished in a midfield position.
We have no runners today and then return to the action on Friday with PIAZON. He has been in good form of late, but he has a big field to contend with and so hopefully he can come up with the goods. He is another who heads to the Horses in Training sales and it would certainly enhance is profile to go into the sales on top of another decent effort.
