We were delighted with the effort shown by GENERAL HAZARD on Wednesday at Kempton. He was kept in a prominent position and was asked for his effort over two out. He had no chance with the winner and just missed out on second place. He is sure to have needed the run and will only improve from this effort.

We are all so thrilled with BIG ORANGE’S run in the Dubai Gold Cup yesterday.  He is such an amazing horse and has the courage of a lion. He sat in second most of the way, with a gap back to the main bunch, before kicking for home from the turn in. He kept finding for pressure and saw his race out well, but the winner who he was giving weight too, just had that bit more than him. It was a great team effort and big well done to Gill who travelled him and Twyron who is lucky enough to ride him every day. Also it will hopefully have cheered poor Robert his groom up who is recovering from breaking his leg after being kicked in January by a horse.

We could have runners on Wednesday with ASKUM having double entries one at Kempton and one at Lingfield. She worked nicely yesterday and a decision will be made tomorrow if she takes her chance. At Southwell DAVEY BOY has been entered and he looks to have done really well over the winter.

Yesterday the horses worked on the Cambridge Road.
