On Thursday we started the afternoon off at Yarmouth where ELEMENTARY was hoping to break his maiden tag. He had been dropped down in trip after proving rather keen at Musselburgh on his last start. He could not quicken up when asked for his effort and it looked as though he may just require the seventh furlong after all. Later in the evening, we headed to Wolverhampton with MACHINE LEARNER. Applied with a visor for the second time he did not appear to be the most willing when under pressure. He ran on again when Luke Morris got him organised, but he was no match for his unexposed rival.

On Friday we headed to Newmarket with AMERICAN PATROL. He looked to lead early on and was joined with six furlongs left to run. He remained up with the leader and had every chance over a furlong from home. He looked to get tired coming up the hill and probably just needed the run.

Yesterday at Newmarket we had declared the two runners. We started the afternoon off with TAUREAN STAR. He did not appear to appreciate the muddling gallop and when asked for his effort could find no extra in the final furlong. Later on the card STETCHWORTH PARK chased the leaders and had every chance over one furlong out. He stayed on at the same pace in the final furlong and did not seem inconvenienced by the step up in trip.

Today we head to Chelmsford with       THE MAJOR. He has proved a consistent horse and is desperately unlucky to still be a maiden. It would be great for him to finally have his day.

On Tuesday we head to Chepstow with NOTALOT. He ran a nice race at Goodwood last time in what was a competitive nursery and previous to that he had been runner up on both his starts. He is definitely capable of winning a race and hopefully we have found the right one for him.

Today the horses worked on the Watered Gallop
