A busy schooling morning, we jumped 16 horses with Paul, Claire and Amber riding on grass and in the school.
We jumped Just Don't Ask, Lady Ingleby, Old Jeroboam, Checkitout, Vivas, Eclair On Line, Largy Nights, Hillberry, Forth Bridge, Leith Hill Lad, Hoot At Midnight, Shah An Shah, Jet Set, Wilberdragon, Jamacho and Highway Girl.
We also had a father, daughter in for a morning on the gallops.
Four runners tomorrow, three at Worcester and one at Exeter. Dandridge heads to Exeter, he has been running consistently all summer without winning, he has picked up over £10,000 in prize money, paying his training fees! This is a Challenger Middle Distance Qualifier and there are ten runners, hopefully he will run another good race to finish in the first four. Present Endeavour is a lovely young horse who is making his racecourse debut at Worcester, he is from the familly of Ballynagor and Mighty Mogul, he was in training last season, however didn't quite reach the racecourse. He has grown and strengthened over the summer and we will know a bit more about him after tomorrow.
Shanroe In Milan runs in the 3m Novices' Hurdle, he has been chasing and was ultra consistent over hurdles before that. He was lightly raced last season, however has returned to us in great form. Old Jeroboam won two bumpers in the Spring, this will be his hurdling debut.
