|Four Fiddlers is just denied at the last Kelso meeting|
Friday, 23 March 2012
The fine weather continues and another busy morning with horses schooling and on the all-weather with plenty of visitors in to see them, we now seem to be exercising 24 each day, rather more than we are used to but we have a great team together and there is a lot to look forward to.
Starting this weekend, we run Four Fiddlers with Peter Buchanan on board in the 4.05 at Kelso where the ground is good, 13 run and he has plenty of weight (11lb more than when he was 2nd there 2 weeks ago) in a tight little handicap, I hope he runs well. At the Lanark p2p we run four - Commercial Express (Kit), Almost Blue (Jamie), Flaming Thistle (Kit) and Mersey (Jamie), we had a double on the card last year and will be doing our best to repeat the trick. I of course will be trying to take in both venues which will be a challenge as I don't have a helicopter (yet) but fun I hope. All the action packed in to one day as thereafter we will be quiet until Newcastle at the end of next week. What I'm really looking forward to is Easter Saturday as we may be involved at Carlisle, Haydock, Musselburgh and Morpeth p2p.. ho ho.
