A busy morning, Overworkdunderpaid runs at Wetherby this afternoon with Tom Buckley in the saddle. He has been freshened up a huge amount since his last run, and seems in great form.
We had a morning watching declarations as State Vision was the first one to be ballotted and it comes down to 9.59am watching how many are declared to see if he would get a run. We have three runners at both Doncaster and Huntingdon. Western Miller, Local Affair and Eclair On Line run at Doncaster and Present Endeavour, State Vision and Shah An Shah at Huntingdon. Western Miller is probably still too high in the handicap and likes good ground however the ground at Doncaster shouldn't be too holding for him. Local Affair runs in a low grade handicap and Tom Buckley takes off 7lbs to help her out. Ecalir On Line is making his handicap debut and has been in good form at home.
Present Endeavour has the hood on to help him learn to settle, he raced quite keenly last time so the hood should help him. State Vision has been in good form at home and is learning with every run. Shah An Shah is making his handicap debut with Aidan Coleman riding, he ran well last time out and has been unlucky to have to wait to run until now.
