Where's Tiger looked outpaced up the run in at Catterick coming third on his second start over fences. Unfortunately, he finished a bit sore and will have time to recover.
At home, we welcomed the National Hunt Racing Enthusiasts club to the yard, pictured. A Facebook based group, the members are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and they had a full tour of the yard and gallops and some refreshments organised by Oli. Indeed they finished off the Rhubarb Edinburgh Gin and prosecco, so I think that they had a good day.
The Class Of 2017 four year olds had a morning schooling, jumping up the lines of logs followed by small tyres. All jumped really well and last time they jumped alongside. Again it is a credit to Derek who has got these youngsters settled and educated and the team of riders here who are riding them so well. On the home page (And our Facebook page) you can see the video. Led by Voyage A New York the front pair are Aurora Thunder and Slainte Mhor, then Mint Gold and Crumbs with Pinspot and Izzy's Champion in the third pair.
Tomorrow at Musselburgh we have two runners, both in the two mile handicap hurdle. Vino's Choice and Kelpies Myth have the ability and are suited by the right hand track. I expect them both to be competitive and to be effective in a fast run affair.
