Jester Jet, Dorking Boy, Lady Cylla, Via Delle Volte, Snapdragon Fire and Lagonda jumped over a couple of lines of hurdles. Jester Jet as to be expected after jumping fences gave the first hurdle a lot of air but then schooled in her usual slick manner. If todays rain at Newbury hit Ascot I think her chance of turning up has increased.
The vast majority of the others hacked a mile around the sand before catering up the hill a couple of times.
En Meme Temps was taken off his feet, he missed the hurdle down the back and it was all over from there on in. We will need to find him a more suitable track where the tempo of the race isn’t quite so great.
Things were soon put in prospective when I read the horrendous news of a 22-year-old girl losing her life whilst riding work on the gallops for Ian Jardine. A truly tragic accident.
