The new season begins on Saturday 1st of May, and we have a couple of entries to hit the ground running. Almazhar Garde and Snow Leopardess are entered in the feature at Uttoxeter, however Snow Leopardess is now going have a summer holiday instead. Maxi Jazz is entered at Uttoxeter as well; unfortunately, it is unlikely he will get into the race, along with Teenage Dirtbag who also holds an entry at Hexham.
We managed to school a few of our summer jumpers this morning as Luca Morgan, a conditional jockey who claims 5lb, was in to ride out. Brogan was on the lead horse Nightfly, who loves jumping around the ring. Luca then schooled Glimpse Of Gala, Calvario, Maxi Jazz and The Wise Traveller. It is always a relief when they jump well, and they will all have entries in the next couple of weeks. It was also great to see Little Bruce back under the saddle after his recent wind op, he looks to be enjoying it.
High Yield headed off on his summer holidays to Mill House Stud, and Nightline was collected by Clare Hart yesterday. Nightline has been retired from racing and is now ready to find his forever home. He has been a grand old servant and we have no doubt in him being the perfect ROR horse for someone.
Do Wanna Know headed over to Lew House Stables for one last school before his run, and we collected Glencassley who has been at ‘schooling school’. His jumping looks to be fantastic, and we will be excited to see him out.
After weeks of no rain, it is absolutely tipping it down here which is great news. There is a small bit of hope that ‘Soft’ may appear in the going descriptions, however that cannot be guaranteed. Glimpse Of Gala, Do Wanna Know, Nightfly, Raven Court, Hoot At Midnight and Teenage dirtbag all hold entries for the start of next week.
