Capital Venture
A grey sort of week here so far, quiet and mild though so long may it last.  Horses mostly been on the all-weather here and a sortie to Lucinda's woodchip this morning involving The Paddy Premium, Here's to Harry and Amulree.  After a couple of winners the yard feels busy and industrious, lot of people working hard, plenty of visitors and the horses appear in good order.
We have 3 runners at Hexham tomorrow, Lucy rides them all and the ground is soft with some heavy places on the chase track and good to soft places on the hurdle track.
Capital Venture runs in the 1.40, 8 run, 2m NH Novice Hurdle, a few decent looking horses and I'm not sure he will like the ground much however the small field and stiffish track should suit well and he is ready for a run. 
Papamoa runs in the 2.10, 2m 4f handicap hurdle,12 run, ground should be perfect for him will improve when he goes up to 3 miles but the testing conditions and uphill finish will play to his strengths and he seems well.
Seeking Power runs in the 2.40, 4m handicap chase, 10 run, conditions to suit and horse in great form but is 6lb out of  the handicap and would have a better chance carrying more weight against lesser horses, can expect a big run if they go a gentle pace.
Lucy then rides Boston Court in the 3.40 for Wilf Storey.
Seeking Power just denied for the 2nd time last season by Matmata de Tendron, they meet again tomorrow - 3rd time lucky?
