Much Better

A much better day & whilst the grass remains sodden we were able to use both schools and the all-weather and the horses did plenty of work. We run Northern Flame in the 1.35 at Carlisle tomorrow, 11 run, Paddy Aspell rides and the ground will be very soft.  This horse improved a lot on his second outing over hurdles at Ayr a month ago, he has to step up again & I suspect he will be better over further but it wouldn't surprise me to see him run a big race at long odds if he handles the conditions though ultimately tomorrow is about furthering his education.
I was delighted to be able to collect Isla Pearl Fisher from the Glasgow University veterinary hospital this afternoon, he seemed happy to be home and everyone here was happy to have him back.  It is worth mentioning how impressed I have been with the team at Glasgow in every aspect of the way they have handled this case, it also never ceases to amaze me how much more straightforward it appears to be to receive the right level of medical care and associated communication if you are a horse compared with being a human.
