Today we had a press day organised by Scottish Racing and including journalists and film crews from ITV and BBC1. As ever the team here had the yard and horses looking fabulous, and Matthew had bacon and sausage rolls ready for everyone. Pictured are some of the team that go to produce the horses and winners here.
Tomorrow we have two novice hurdlers at Newcastle, Izzys Champion and Emirat De Cantana.
Izzy's Champion has been impressing us at home and while he is still very green he has a nice level of ability and should continue to improve with time. This is a tough novice hurdle for him, but the experience will not be lost on this five year old by Gold Well.
Emirat De Cantana is fairly similar and he needs to learn to be more relaxed through the race. He schooled well this week and he should be fine on the good to soft ground.
