Winner – Chitra

December 11, 2019

Chitra notched the sixth win of her career in a tightly fought contest at Lingfield on Monday afternoon. Gary and Lesley Middlebrook’s tough homebred daughter of Sea the Moon battled bravely under a well judged Richard Kingscote ride. Breaking well from the gates as is her customary style the filly ended up just behind the […]

Thoughts on Chitra This Afternoon

December 9, 2019

Chitra runs this afternoon at Lingfield Park in the 3.30pm 5f Handicap. Richard Kingscote is aboard the filly and together, the pair have been first past the post three times. Chitra had a good run last time out over 6 furlongs just fading in the final strides after a bold effort hence today’s drop back […]

Thoughts on Arishka

November 29, 2019

Arishka runs in the 8.00 at Kempton Park this evening. Liam Keniry is in the plate for the six furlong handicap. Having won twice earlier in the year it’s fair to say Arishka hasn’t been quite so good of late, so we are changing things up a little here. Adding blinkers to the mix as […]

Thoughts on Chitra

November 28, 2019

Chitra runs in the 12.10 at Lingfield today (Thursday 28th of November). Richard Kingscote who is three from three aboard the filly is back in the saddle. Chitra has gone very close in Class 4 company several times and the sharp 6 furlongs should play to her strengths. The wide draw poses a challenge, although […]

Brief Thoughts on Castelo

November 23, 2019

Castelo runs in the 4.10 at Wolverhampton this afternoon. Jason Watson rides in the six furlong handicap. The filly ran well for a reasonable portion of her return to action after a long layoff and will strip fitter for today’s race. She has nice draw in stall 2. The race is open looking and there […]

Thoughts on Don’t Tell Claire at Kempton

November 20, 2019

Don’t Tell Claire makes her debut today at Kempton Park in the 5.10pm 6f Fillies’ Novice Auction Stakes. Hollie Doyle takes the ride and the filly is drawn in stall 8. Don’t Tell Claire has shown ability at home but it is her first day at school and we’d expect there to be some improvement. […]

Thoughts on Today’s Runners

November 6, 2019

Sarsen Farm sends out two runners thevening. First up is Castelo at Kempton Park Racecourse. The filly runs at 4.40pm in the 7f handicap with Jason Watson in the irons. She has drawn wide in stall 12 which makes life tricky. Castelo had a life threatening injury when turned out in a paddock on her […]

Thoughts on Arishka at Newcastle

November 1, 2019

Arishka returns to Newcastle tonight for the 5.25. Kieran O’Neill rides the filly as the pair bid to repeat their success at the venue earlier this year. The filly has enjoyed both her visits to the track. She blew away the cobwebs on a return to action in a higher grade after break last time, […]

Thoughts On Secret Acquisition at Kempton

October 31, 2019

Secret Acquisition bids break her maiden at the third attempt this evening in the 6.10 at Kempton Park. David Egan will be aboard the filly as she attempts to go one place better than on her two previous starts. She is well drawn and although next season she will be better over a bit further […]

Thoughts on King’s Counsel Today

October 24, 2019

King’s Counsel heads to Chelmsford City for the 1m5f Novice Stakes at 8.30pm this evening (Thursday 23rd of October). Josephine Gordon maintains her partnership together with the gelding. He ran a more promising race last time out over the course and distance when taking a good step forward on his debut. He should show some […]
