at the coalface..

a reasonably productive day at Ayr yesterday with all the horses running well; Daasij didn't seem to quite see out the trip on the testing ground but still made a promising debut finishing 4th, Forcefield was outpaced down the back straight but stayed on nicely to finish 5th, Seeking Power was also outpaced but kept on and also finished 5th - this was a much better effort that last time and I think he can win again given the right conditions, Noir et Vert put up a bold front running display but once again had to give best to the Cheltenham bound Special Portrait and in the bumper Four Fiddlers came 4th.  Not bad and a geat day out with Ayr's owners lunch and some surprisingly mild spring-like weather.
A mild blustery sort of morning today, most of them had a routine workout on the all-weather and then Northern Flame, Minimo and Twelve Paces worked on Lucinda's woodchip.
This weekend it looks like our only runner will be Skipping Chapel who will attempt to follow up his Lanark win in the Winners of One race at Corbridge, hopefully Lucy might have a ride or two also, thereafter next week is a quiet one in the North but we will be hoping to be busy again at Kelso on Saturday 5th where we are sponsoring.
