We have returned back to the action today starting the afternoon off at Yarmouth. Sadly JAWAN did not play ball and would not load in the stalls. He has had his quirks, but has been loading fine at home. Maybe the occasion got to him here. Later on the card we were pleased with the effort shown by SHERIFF on his racecourse debut. Held up in touch towards the rear of the field, he was asked for his effort two furlongs out. He made some headway into midfield and kept on but was no threat to leaders inside the final furlong. It was a nice racecourse introduction and he is sure to come on for it. Our last runner at Yarmouth was COMPRISE. He travelled nicely for the early part of the race and with two furlongs left to run it looked as though it might be his day. He could not sustain his effort and finished out of the frame. Our only other runner was at Sandown where SHIMMERING LIGHT took her chance. Applied with the first time visor she travelled smoothly throughout the race and when asked for her effort she took the lead, but sadly could not hold on. It was a much better effort and hopefully we will be able to get a win out of shortly.
Tomorrow we head to Yarmouth again with the three declared runners and it is great to see FLYING SPARKLE back on the track. She won her maiden nicely at Windsor on her debut and looked to be a nice filly. She should have a good chance if she can recreate that form. Also in the race is RUPERT’S LASS. She had been working better since her debut run and after ironing out her stalls problems hopefully we will now get a smooth run with her. We round off the day at Yarmouth with JIVE TALKING. She has been running consistently until last time when dropped in trip. She should appreciate the step back up and hopefully can do herself justice. We round off the day at Chelmsford where NURSE NIGHTINGALE takes her chance. On her last start at Newcastle she got going late on and was probably unlucky not to finish closer. She seems to like the all weather and hopefully we have found a race she can be competitive in.
On Friday we head to Ayr where GIRLS TALK makes her re-appearance after a promising debut run at Newmarket where she got tired. She has been working nicely at home and looks to have come on for the run.
Due to staff holidays the website will not be updated for the next ten days.
Today the horses worked on the Back of the Flat.
