Seem to be a very fleeting experience this year and the heavens opened again yesterday afternoon with the result that unfortunately it will be soft ground at Perth again. Although it is unlikely to suit our three runners we will be pleased to be racing and grateful to the course for staging this extra fixture helped by a new sponsor, Alistair Cochrane, whose company PPS also sponsors the Kinneston team clothing, most helpful - especially in winter! We hope to run; The Paddy Premium in the 2.55, Richard Johnson rides and 6 run, Balwyllo in the 4.25 with Lucy on board and stable debutante King Brex in the 4.55 with Kit riding. Lucy also rides Purkab in the 2.25, Silver Steel in the 2.55, Spirit of a Nation in the 3.25, Colditz in the 3.55 and Toshi in the 4.55 - that will be six in a row for her, busy busy.
Back here this morning tomorrow's runners popped over a few hurdles (along with ground driven late scratching Goldtrek) and Makhzoon, Buffalo Ballet, Four Fiddlers and Papamoa did plenty of jumping over poles, the rest were in the school and on the all-weather. Academy and Elmaatigra were back into work and Isla Pearl Fisher and Forcefield are in from the field and will be shod tomorrow.
