Delighted with yesterday's runners who both put up career best efforts, Forcefield coming 7th of 17 at 100-1 and Four Fiddlers 3rd of 11 at 40-1. It was a cold day but Ayr look after Owners very well so we were able to keep warm (just!).
This morning the recent runners had an easy day but 9 did fastish work on the grass and Almost Blue, Amulree and Daasij went to Lucinda's where they all worked well. Tomorrow we run Native Coll in the 1.50 at Newcastle, Peter Buchanan rides and we will be hoping for a clear round now that he has fallen on his two most recent starts, he was always Peter's ride but Lucinda has normally run something against him, I am pleased that he is available tomorrow as he has done a lot of work with the horse here, 11 run and the ground is soft. I felt he would have won last time, he still seems in good heart so let's hope we find out tomorrow. Seeking Power is declared for the 3.50, 10 run and Lucy rides, his participation will be subject to a scope this afternoon. Northern Flame was balloted out and will now head to Ayr on Monday or Carlisle on Wednesday next week.
