The majority of the horses put in hard yards around the sand – all seem in good order.
Worcester was a success last night, if you haven’t seen Vivant’s race it is a much watch, Twitter has been very busy on the subject since. Richard Johnson reminded us all why he is champion jockey and why McCoy said he was harder than anyone else to beat in a finish. Vivant didn’t seem to want to know but the champion jockey pushed and slapped her throughout and somehow managed to get her head in front where it mattered – a truly, fabulous ride.
David’s Phoebe bumped into one yet again, Tommie gave her every chance but she was just done for toe by an ex flat horse over the last 2 hurdles. She surely deserves to win another, there is plenty of stamina in her pedigree and we will look to step her up in trip.
The BHA were here today to inspect the facilities, check our record keeping and license another 12 stables, all is well and we can concentrate on the season ahead.
I’m looking forward to seeing England bowl but when Ali and Curran can score runs I don’t think King Kohli will have too many problems. Our top order is seriously struggling.
