Yesterday we started the day off at Newmarket with RONALD R. Steadied at the start he travelled well for the first part of the race and was then asked for his effort. He looked unable to quicken on the ground and was soon beaten over a furlong out. He appears to have come out of his race well and we will look at other opportunities for him.
In the evening we headed to Epsom with DREAM MACHINE. He tracked the leading pair and went second in the straight. He was ridden to challenge and was leading just inside final furlong, when headed in the last strides. He is entered again this week and we will see how he is before deciding if he should take his chance.
On Friday we started the afternoon off at Ascot with JOE’S SPIRIT. He was back at six furlongs which seems to suit him better as he was staying on well to the line.
There seems to be more to come from him possibly over bit further. Later in the afternoon we headed to Newmarket with ARABIAN JAZZ.
Held up towards the rear she was asked for her effort over a furlong out. She did not pick up as hoped and could not sustain a challenge. Later on the card TAUREAN DANCER was making his racecourse debut. He raced in a midfield position and he looked very green when travelling. He was asked to make his effort and got bumped which did not help things weakening inside the final furlong. He looked as though he needed the run and is sure to come on for it.
Tomorrow we start the afternoon off at Newmarket with ROULETTE. She has been working nicely at home and is sure to be a filly that will keep progressing. Later on the card CHEVAL BLANCHE takes her chance. She made the running in her last start and appeared to not stay the mile. She should appreciate the return to seven furlongs. We round off the afternoon at the meeting with BATTS ROCK. He seems to run better over twelve furlongs and has been applied with the sheepskin cheek pieces which should hopefully bring about some more improvement. At Chester our only runner is recent Kempton winner COMPRISE who won in good fashion. Hopefully he will not be inconvenienced by a return to the turf and although it looks a tough little contest hopefully he will do himself justice. We round off the day at Ascot with FREEBE ROCKS a nice two-year-old is making his racecourse debut. He has been working nicely at home and although he will probably need the run he certainly looks a progressive type.
