First Lot - Plans!

Sun rises over Kinneston, 3rd Feb 2012
Cold and frosty again this morning but a fine morning and the gallop in good order, some pictures of first lot below. Change forecast for tomorrow, probably too late for Wetherby where Lucy rides Charingworth in the 3.30 and Big Water in the 4.30, both winners last time out but an inspection at lunchtime today does not bode well. Musselburgh much more optimistic, let's hope it's on as it's a cracking card and the perfect way to blow away the cobwebs after celebrating a famous victory in the Calcutta Cup. We run Commercial Express with Kit on board in the 4.30, 9 run and the ground should be good. Lucy rides Kealigolane in the 1.30, Edinburgh Gin Time in the 2.00 (appropriately named but maybe a little earlier than 2.00?), Carrietau in the 2.30 and Sir Tantallus Hawk in the 4pm, fingers crossed and then we look forward to Ayr on Monday where the "bopping toff" will hopefully be featuring in his debut appearance on a Scottish racecourse since his return to his homeland......
