Another absolute scorcher this morning, the pollen count must be high as a few of us were struggling with hay fever!

We were delighted with our runners yesterday, especially HIGH WELLS who came 2nd. Both horses out ran their odds and have come out of their races well. Lots of non runners at all the meetings yesterday, the ground is drying up everywhere due to the hot weather. After our wet winter we seem to get extreme seasons at the moment.

Our jockeys Kielan Woods, Max Kendrick and Lilly Pinchin were in this morning to school some of our summer jumpers. Yes, jump racing is nearly with us and after watching the horses school this morning we’re buzzing for it! We schooled CAST IN GREY, STYNES, JESSICA RABBIT, MISSTHECUDDLES, NORMAN STANLEY, SAMMYLOU and HATTAAB. All schooled very well.

We should have a few runners next week, both on the flat and over jumps. Very much depending on what gets in, there is a lot of entries for the early summer jump meetings as you can imagine.

The Irish Derby tomorrow and Rachael Blackmore, who we usually see riding top national hunt horses, gets a ride in the big race.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
