Ashley lies across the Bahamian Bounty ex Qilin colt for the first time

A very mild and breezy morning with plenty of cloud but, fortunately, not a drop of rain. First and second lot cantered up Long and Warren Hill and the yearlings are making great progress. The yearlings look a nice bunch and I am already looking forward to next year with them. 


The colts out of Gold Hush, Fiddle-Dee-Dee and Qilin. 

Astrodiva runs this afternoon in the 4.10 pm race at Lingfield. She still seems in good form and, assuming she handles the track, I would be very hopeful of her being in the shake-up today. A win would be fitting compensation for a filly, who has been knocking on the door throughout so much of her career. 


Ashley gets the Bahamian Bounty ex Qilin colt trotting

Phil and Ian are keeping their heads down this morning after Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat against Shakhtar in the Champions League yesterday. Unfortunately, I have to keep my head down as well with Huddersfield inflicting a 2-0 defeat on The Owls. 


The Act One colts ex Torcross and Highbrook coming on in leaps and bounds
