Race, win, repeat, race, win repeat…….

The weekend started with the horses all running well, with lots of near misses. Strongly Suggested finishing second at Stratford, Champagne At Tara third in the valuable Novice Chase at Ascot, Spiritual Man beaten a neck at Huntingdon on Monday and I’dliketheoption finishing second at Ludlow on Monday, and also Pillard and Celtic Tune finishing third.

It was nice to get the monkey off our back! and get back to winning ways with our little star, Timeforwest bringing up a great “threepeat” at Kempton yesterday. It's great when a plan comes to fruition. She will have a few days off now and if she bounces back again, she could go to the mares’ only race at Ayr or Cheltenham in a couple of weeks.

Tonight we run Desert Cross in the 8.45 at Kempton on the all weather track – after having the winter off – we hope he runs well and tomorrow we start the Aintree Festival with one runner, Mountain Path, in the 5.15 Grade 2 mares’ only open bumper.

On Friday we run Eastlake in the Topham – which he won last year – over the National fences and also Go Conquer who ran a good race at Cheltenham and if he takes to the Aintree fences, he would have a live chance.

We also run Mad Jack Mytton and possibly Dream Berry in the 2½ mile Handicap Hurdle on Friday.

Building up to Saturday, More Of That is in great form for his Grand National debut, let’s hope he runs a big race and comes back safely.

Taquin du Seuil will also run at Aintree on Saturday, although the race still has to be decided – being entered in the 1.45 and 4.20 – decisions, decisions! Also we will have 2 or 3 runners in the 3 mile handicap hurdle, including Holywell.

It was a busy morning at Jackdaws this morning when Aidan Coleman was in and we schooled 25 – 30 summer horses in the morning sunshine.
