The horses all had routine canters this morning, we schooled nine 3 year olds down on the schooling strip over fences for the first time. Tommie and Stan did the steering, they all jumped beautifully given it was their first time on the strip.
This afternoon, I walked around the course at Cheltenham, they have done an incredible job given the dry weather we’ve been experiencing. I thought it walked on the slow side of good, they are turning the taps off at some stage between tonight and tomorrow morning. It will obviously tighten up a bit between now and Friday but the team at Cheltenham couldn’t have done a better job if they tried.
