"Nothing cures insomnia like the realization that it's time to get up."


Crystal Peal

It’s another really thick foggy morning and I have had plenty of visitors. First lot we were going to go the Warren Hill grass, but had to change our plans half way through exercise as you literally couldn’t see one hand in front of the other. It has now started to burn off but it will take until mid morning to finally clear.


We have two runners today at Fakenham, and both of them have similar chances. Akula runs in the first and My Guardian Angel in the fourth. They have each had a run on the flat in the last three weeks and the course should suit. I will be hoping of a good run from them both. I think the ground at Fakenham will be on the good, good to soft side, especially on the hurdles course.

The sun trying to break through
