Last Monday we had a trip to Wolverhampton with Helfire and Hilight who both ran satisfactory - Helfire 5th and Hilight 8th. Felt disappointed for both fillies with the surface riding deeper than ideal for the girls.. it looked ‘fluffy’ possibly due to the sunshine and heat?!? Both girls have come out of the race well and hopefully run again early June.
Helfire in yellow and red cap - 2nd inside final furlong but unable to quicken on the surface.

On Tuesday of last week we took the beautiful Ask Jilly to Ffos Las for her handicap debut over hurdles. Unfortunately she had a crashing fall at the fifth of eight hurdles..... so unfortunate when travelling so well. Thankfully both Jilly and her jockey are fine. We will now concentrate on regaining her confidence and will wait for the right race on the best ground.
