Omokoroa and Ted Spread lead the string around Side Hill

'' Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.''

A glorious morning, unfortunately, with hardly a cloud in the sky. We have done a couple of good canters with everything this morning, taking first lot, which included Ted Spread, up Warren Hill canter, having a good walk around the wood and then going around Side Hill canter, which is left-handed, similar to Epsom!


Side Hill bathed in sunshine - what a contrast to yesterday!

Yesterday's runners ran two completely different races. Blinke Me ran really well to be second and is a fast improving stayer, who looks sure to win more races this season, whereas Bertie Smalls was very disappointing; maybe he did not handle the undulating track, which many of them don't.


Comrade Bond, Munro's Dragon and Piccarello

One runner today, Captain Clint at Lingfield in the 2.50pm., he has run two good races and this looks another one where he could perform with credit but with sixteen runners around Lingfield you have to get luck in running.




The horses gleaming in the warm sun

Angie and I had a fantastic day yesterday but nobody will guess what we were doing. I will let you all know tomorrow. The clue is, I got covered in oil.
