Yesterday we returned to the action at Yarmouth with three declared runners. We started off in the maiden with the unraced MANTOU and ALMAX. ALMAX faired the better of the two, but he did have some racecourse experience having already run as a two-year-old. Steadied at the start he was held up in a midfield position. He was ridden and was asked for his effort and soon weakened. He is sure to have needed the run and he has the profile to keep progressing with his racing. MANTOU was bumped on leaving the starting stalls and was always towards the rear. He was ridden over two furlongs out and could make no headway, weakening inside the final furlong. We rounded the evening off with JAYEFF HERRING who was not seen to his best and never got competitive at all in his race.
Today we start the afternoon off at Nottingham where we have declared HALA HALA. She has not found her form so far this season, but she has been working nicely and hopefully she can bounce back and give a good account of herself here. In the evening we head to Ripon where we are hoping SPIRITOFTHEUNION will be competitive. She has been progressing really well and on her recent homework, a decent effort from the filly is expected.
Tomorrow we have declared just the one runner at Lingfield and that is ROCK OF LEON. He did not appear to take to the visor last time and on this occasion it has been left off. He is capable of winning races and hopefully he will have his day
On Friday we have declared INVOKE at Bath and HYPERLINK at Goodwood. INVOKE has posted some consistent efforts although she did not do that well on her last start at Salisbury. She looks in good order and with the valuable five pound claimed off her back hopefully she can get the job done. HYPERLINK has recently returned to us and he will be partnered by his usual jockey Alex Ferguson. He has not run since November, but he looks fit and well and hopefully he will give a good account of himself.
