Homecoming And Pre Kelso

One For Arthur had his official homecoming this morning with a tremendous crowd of people to see him. He is turning into a natural showman and loved the attention. He certainly had plenty of it, and it was very touching to see everyone here to admire him, many who had traveled from afar. We rounded the morning off with a party for the staff at the Grouse And Claret where Vicky and David supplied plenty refreshments and there was lots of cheering.

Arthur will be at Kelso races tomorrow, before the first race so please come along to meet him again.

It is back to business at Kelso with seven runners.

Maraweh makes his seasonal debut over a trip that is possibly on the short side nowadays. Still, he has a long summer in front of him and this should be a good starting point for him.

Shine A Diamond has been running consistently over the winter over three mile and it will be good to see him dropped back a little to two miles five. He prefers fast ground.

Green Flag has not got great recent form but do not discount him as his mark has dropped and he has been looking sharper at home.

Superior Command is back over fences after some good runs over hurdles. He is a course winner and looks well.

Hey Listen has taken time to strengthen, but was given a good ride to win last time on holding sticky ground. He should love the better going tomorrow and goes for the Buccleuch Cup which Dad won in 1993 with Gunmetal Boy.

Finally we have two in the two mile two furlong hurdle; Alizee De Janeiro should love the return to Kelso and good ground, and Urban Kode who may need further nowadays but needs to get himself ready for Perth this summer.
