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, […]

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.

October 23, 2019

Chitra runs in the 7.40pm at Kempton Park this evening. Kieran Shoemark is in the irons for the 7f fillies’ handicap. She steps up in distance from her recent starts and has a good draw in stall 4. She has been placed a lot recently and this is really an experiment to see if we […]

River Sprite runs in the 7.25pm at Wolverhampton. Kieran Shoemark is in the irons for the 7f novice race.

This looks a good opening for River Sprite, her biggest rival […]

Chamomile wins!

October 6, 2019

Chamomile broke her duck under a confident ride by Pat Cosgrave yesterday evening at Wolverhampton. The well bred daughter of Teofilo was having just her fourth start and stepped up to nine and half furlongs for the first time. With the win under her belt the daughter of Teofilo becomes a useful broodmare prospect as […]

Thoughts on Chamomile and Chitra today

October 5, 2019

Two runners at Wolverhampton this evening. Chamomile runs in the 5.30 with Pat Cosgrave aboard for the nine and a half furlong handicap. The filly didn’t get much luck in her novice races, soft ground and then two wide draws on the all weather. The step up in trip should suit as will the likely […]

Thoughts on Fronsac at Kempton

October 2, 2019

Fronsac runs in the 5.10 at Kempton today. The gelding steps back in trip to seven furlongs under Josephine Gordon. The gelding ran promisingly over a mile here a couple of starts ago and looked as if seven furlongs would suit that day. He wears cheek pieces to ensure that he is sharp over the […]
