Right, sorry about that, a fine start to the point-to-pointing season last weekend with Noir et Vert and Skipping Chapel running well prior to tiring and Amulree putting up a career best effort to finish second, most encouraging considering their disrupted training, the West Percy was well-supported and produced excellent competitive racing. No runners under rules this week but we've had a highly productive time here being able to use all the facilities properly for the first time in ages, the horses have all done loads of work on grass, we've had three schooling sessions over hurdles and fences and half a dozen have been away to work at Lucinda's. More work planned for tomorrow and then on Sunday weather permitting it will be off to the Jedforest point-to-point near Kelso where we hope to have three or four runners. Ideally we will then go to Ayr on Monday where we intend to run Forcefield and Four Fiddlers for the Earley Macdonald partnership and Northern Flame for the Peglegs, ballots to be negotiated first but they also have entries at Newcastle on Wednesday where we might run Native Coll and Seeking Power as well, going is good at Ayr and very soft at Newcastle, hopefully somewhere in between at Kelso... so, busy time, let's hope the weather behaves, we have glorious spring-like conditions today....
