So far this week we have just had the one runner and that was last night at Lingfield when TARANDO made her re-appearance after a decent run on her last start at Leicester. In touch in a midfield position, she was ridden and looked unable to quicken over a furlong from home. She weakened inside the final furlong to finish fifth. She appears to have taken the race well and we will come up with another plan for her. She is capable of winning races.
Today we start the afternoon at Lingfield where BIG SKY is hoping to get off the mark. She has been working nicely and she really needs to transfer on the track what she has been doing at home. In the second division of the race ROSECOMB takes her chance. She is another who has not fulfilled the potential that we know she possesses and she is being dropped back in trip, which will hopefully suit her. We round off the day with STRAIT OF MAGELLAN who is looking to get back into winning ways. He has been working nicely at home and hopefully things will go in his favour here. At Catterick we are hoping to get off the mark with MOTION PICTURE. The form from her previous starts is working out well and as long as she is not inconvenienced by the ground she should run a good race. At Sandown THE MAJOR makes his re-appearance after a promising effort at Lingfield on his racecourse debut. He appears to have come on for the run and we would be expecting another good effort from him.
Tomorrow we start the day at Nottingham with SHOW LEGEND. The race looks quite a tough contest, but if he can recreate his last run at Newmarket he should again be competitive. Later in the afternoon SAMPERA who got a reprieve from the July Sales takes her chance. She won nicely on her last start and looks as though she could be progressive. In the evening THATCHEREEN takes her chance and she would ideally need to get some of the forecast rain. She appears to have come on for her last run which she needed and this will hopefully have put her right on track. We round the evening off with ONE MAN ARMY who has shown he has talent it is just getting him to transfer what he is doing at home on the racecourse.
This morning the horses worked on the watered gallop.
