The temperature has definitely dropped this morning, with the threat of rain.
Paul was in this morning to ride out.
No Trumps runs at Hexham this afternoon, she is The Queen's first runner at Hexham! As she won a Conditional Jockey's race, she escapes a penalty. Tom retains the ride.
Champagne Noir runs tomorrow at Aintree, he ran well on his debut at Carlisle to finish second, he has come on for the run and I look forward to seeing how he gets on. Louse Talk runs at Ffos Las on Sunday, he should appreciate the soft ground and Aidan rides, he ran well last time at Uttoxeter and hopefully we can build on that run.
State Vision is the first of our three runners at Sandown on Sunday, he ran well on his debut last time out at Aintree and has learnt plenty from that run. Loose Chips returns to his beloved Sandown, he has won this corresponding race twice in 2016 and 2018. He seems in good form and Paul rides. Present Endeavour runs in the bumper, he has learnt plenty from his debut at Worcester, Paul rides.
