A bit of a non starter day at Kelso as we took out all three runners due to the fast ground. Kelso had watered their track and while it would have been fine for true good ground horses I did not feel that it would suit any of our three runners; it is always sad to take horses out of races, but we have to treat each horse as an individual and their welfare is paramount.
We had a good day though as our hospitality box was well visited and our owners and friends enjoyed the day racing.
