We had three runners at Warwick on Tuesday. Little Bruce pressed the lead but weakened throughout the race. Calidad was disappointing, he was stepped up in trip for his stable debut. His jumping was not up to scratch, and he did not finish off the race. However, Indelible Spin put up a cracking performance to finish 3rd under Bradley Roberts. She got carried quite wide on the home bend, but really finished off the race strongly and will have improved for the run. There are still some spaces in the Charlie Longsdon Racing club for only £74 per month. She looks as though she will be a fun, consistent mare. Email email@example.com for more details.
Yesterday showed Bradley how quickly this sport can bring you back down to earth. Since turning conditional he has a 100% strike rate over hurdles, with three winners, and has not been out of the top three on his two bumper rides. However, he suffered a fall schooling yesterday and had a bang to his shoulder. Luckily, it would appear nothing is broken, and it is just ligament damage, he is off to Oaksey house for some physio to ensure he will be back in no time. Oaksey house and Injured Jockeys Fund are invaluable to racing.
