Happy New Year
Rich Again ran yesterday and he ran a very good race in defeat at Newcastle, suggesting that his old zest is still there. He has come out of the race well and I am sure there will be a win in him in 2018.
We have three runners tomorrow at Newcastle races. The first one is Thank You Very Much. She is reverting back to the flat after failing to sparkle over fences the other day. Although we think that might be because we ran her back too soon. She has been in good form over the Christmas period and we are hopeful of a big run.
The second runner on the card is Urban Soul, he will be stepping up to 1m4f and he has three other opponents. He has been training really well since Chelmsford and although 1m4f is an unknown factor, it would open up a few doors if he could stay. He looks fantastic and I am sure he will run a big race to hopefully continue Mr Dance fine start to the year!
Third and finally, Fruit Salad runs in the last race, she looks fantastic in her skin and has really trained very well over Christmas. She is running off a mark of 77 and although she has never won off this mark, we have Callum Sheppard claiming 3llbs off her which will take her back to her last winning mark. Fingers crossed she will also give a good account of herself.
