Yesterday we had declared ARMAGNAC at Wolverhampton. He failed to get any cover and led early on. He was soon clear, when pressed and driven two out he was soon headed and weakened inside final furlong. He looked to do too much early on and we will look for another opportunity for him. He will benefit from having the run and hopefully can get his head in front next time.
Today we were delighted with the effort shown by COMPRISE who went on to score his victory at Southwell. He tracked the leaders and was travelling really well at the half way stage. He went into the lead with two furlongs left to run and won in nice style. He has progressed really well over the winter and has shaped into a nice horse. Hopefully there is plenty more to come from him. At Lingfield WONDER OF DUBAI took his chance. He was kept handy and asked for his effort two furlongs out. He could find no extra when under pressure just inside final furlong and stayed on at the same pace. He looked as though he might have just needed the run and hopefully can go one better next time.
Tomorrow we head to Chelmsford with DUKE’S GIRL. She looks to have matured over the winter and seems a much stronger filly. She has been in good form at home, but possibly may just need the run.
On Friday CHEVAL BLANCHE makes a re-appearance after her win in the apprentice race at Lingfield. She has come out of that race in fine fettle and heads to Newcastle with a good chance.
Today the horses worked on the Cambridge Road
