Henry Cecil Open weekend advert 2023

“Come up and see me, make me smile”

This weekend we open our doors as part of The Henry Cecil Open Weekend. We are delighted to be able to support the event so please come and meet the team at Sefton lodge on Sunday morning (09.00am-12.30pm) and venture across the road to The Severals for afternoon entertainment. Come and claim your free Rebel Racing Cap (whilst stocks last).

Only the four runners last week where we unfortunately drew a blank for the first time in a quite a while.

Shallow was first up at Kempton and made an eye catching debut under Hollie Doyle to finish second from the widest of draws, she’ll now head to Newmarket for the Tattersalls sales race on the 7th October.

Unfortunately the ground went against our two Doncaster runners Run Boy Run on Thursday, and then Fool’s Gold on Friday – ambitiously stepped up in class he’ll now be put away for next season and remains a very exciting prospect. Also on Friday Wonderwall travelled to Chester where maybe track/maybe trip proved his undoing – we plan to pull him back in distance and aim for the November Handicap at Doncaster.

Whilst no runners in the final leg of The Racing League on Wednesday we were delighted to be part of the winning Team Ireland, chipping in with 73 points, a winner and a couple of bad luck stories. Our whole team thoroughly enjoyed the experience, Kevin Blake was fantastic to work with and we hope to get the opportunity again next year.

This week we start at Kempton on Monday with both Maharajas Express and Giant declared to run under Neil Callan.

On Tuesday we debut another Rajasinghe two year old – Cross The Tracks at Yarmouth, Talamanca is also declared on the same card.

Wednesday we could see Back Tomorrow at Yarmouth, she also holds an entry at the same track on Thursday as does Belo Horizonte in search of the five timer. Bodygroove and Talamanca both hold entries at Chelmsford.

Friday sees us make the long journey up to Ayr with a small team including Two Tribes, Sweet Harmony, Revich with both Bernardo O’Reilly (3rd in Silver Cup last year) and Lucky Man (4th in Gold Cup last year) waiting to find which division(s) they find themselves in.

Hopefully we get back on the winners trail and look forward to seeing many of you at Sefton Lodge on Sunday 24th September.
