“Reach out and call his name”

‘Yah Mo Be There’ – made an impressive debut at York on Thursday confirming all of our thoughts that this could be a ‘proper horse’. He travelled comfortably under Hollie Doyle throughout, quickened impressively between horses and signs of greenness saw him get caught by the Karl Burke-trained Clipper Horse ‘Andesite’ which is obviously a very nice horse. We’ll be heading straight to Royal Ascot for the Coventry Stakes (all being well) where I would imagine we will meet again, and I’m sure plenty of winners will also come out of this race.

Earlier on in the week Paint The Town Red finished strongly to take second place at Wolverhampton – she’ll be stepped up in trip to 6 furlongs, maybe on Wednesday at Kempton.

On Thursday, Candy ran on well from both a bad draw and start on debut at Bath; he will have learned a lot from the experience.

We finished the week with a couple of old hands running on Saturday, firstly Lucky Man at Thirsk. After an impressive three-year-old career he disappointed last season and ran a cracker – beaten only a neck into second place after 238 days off the track. Next was the old boy Bernardo O’Reilly at Doncaster who missed the break even more so than normal and failed to land a blow.

Elsewhere, Wonderwall also showed a return to form last Friday at Aintree – having looked like the winner jumping the last he finished third under Brian Hughes for Peter and Micky Bowen. The lads feel they have found the key to him so his next start will be exciting.

Toxic missed her entry at Newmarket yesterday in favour of heading to Nottingham on Tuesday, she steps up in trip for her first start on turf – Kieran Shoemark rides.

Also entered on Wednesday at Kempton is course and distance winner Giant.

A relatively quiet week on the track but lots of dreaming of another great day at Royal Ascot off of it.
