“Tell me what it’s like across the track!

Last week saw us play catch up in our ‘winner a week’ target hitting the bullseye on two separate occasions.

First up was debutant Cross The Tracks at Yarmouth on Tuesday bellying odds of 25/1 having been available in the morning at 50’s. A fantastic ride from Neil Callan driving him home made all the sweeter by the fact we bought him as a foal for just 3500 gns and he is by our own Rajasinghe. He holds an entry in the Group 3 Somerville Stakes at Newmarket on Thursday.

Our long journey up to Ayr with a team of six runners once again was fruitful – culminating in our second winner of the week, a thoroughly deserved victory for the ultra-consistent Revich. So often the bridesmaid in these ITV Saturday handicaps he was given a magnificent ride from Hollie Doyle to win this race for the second time in three years. Other notable performances saw Two Tribes finishing second in the nursery, Dandy Maestro an unlucky third and the old boy Bernardo running fourth in the Silver Cup.

Another positive week with two winners from just the twelve runners (17% strike rate) and a further three finishing in the money.

This week we kick off with Another Dimension bidding to get his head in front for the first time at Wolverhampton on Monday, before rolling onto Lingfield on Tuesday with Suicide Blonde and the popular Belo Horizonte going for the ‘five timer’.

Thursday sees us much closer to home with entries for Ivory Madonna, Sweet Harmony, Keyser Soze, The City’s Phantom and Pjanoo all joining Cross The Tracks at Newmarket. The Citys Phantom and Pjanoo holding entries in The Newmarket Challenge Whip Handicap – a race first contested in 1830 and restricted to horses owned by members of the Jockey Club rooms to which I was delighted to be recently elected.

Friday we head back to the Rowley Mile for Naomi Lapaglia in the Listed Rosemary Stakes.

A special thanks to all of those who visited the yard yesterday for The Henry Cecil Open Day, a real pleasure to meet so many of you. A special thanks to all of our team for giving up their time and to all of the organisers for putting on such a great event.
