“Sunday Funday”

Just the three runners last week from Sefton Lodge and we had to wait until yesterday to get on the scoresheet for the month of May. A super bit of placing by Richard Spencer saw Cross The Tracks go off the 5/4 favourite and victory never looked out of the question under a dominant ride by Oisin Murphy. Unlucky not to have been landing the hat-trick at the track following his unlucky second place on All Weather Finals Day we really seem to have found the key to this horse.

Earlier on in the week Giant was a shade unlucky at Kempton having been hampered at the start, he finished second beaten only a head and conceding weight all around. Surely he will have his day again soon.

A busy week ahead starts on Monday at Wolverhampton with home-bred Paint The Town Red having her second start – let’s hope she can make the frame under Kieran Shoemark who has already ridden a two year old winner for us this season ‘The Man’.

We then hope to unleash a couple more of our two year old colts although with an anticipated bout of uncertain weather could mean plans are fluid until the last minute.

Candy’s intended start will be at Bath on Wednesday over 5 furlongs under Hollie Doyle. Yah Mo Be There holds entries at York, Lingfield, Newbury and Newmarket – our current plan is to head to York on Thursday once again under Hollie Doyle.

Bernardo O’Reilly, Lucky Man also hold entries at the weekend at Newbury and Doncaster along with Waiting All Night and Toxic at Newmarket.

Elsewhere Composite (George Boughey) holds a range of entries on Friday, Foro Romano (George Boughey) heads to Newmarket on the same day and Wonderwall (Peter and Micky Bowen) could line up at Aintree.
