And yes it’s still raining with snow on the way! More freezing temperatures forecast for next week but the show must go on!
Zefferino has an entry for Chelmsford on Friday. He is in great form at home and he deserves his chance as has been the unluckiest horse in racing getting wide draws for months!
Champion Chase finished 3rd at Ffos Las on Thursday. A long way to travel but he loves the heavy ground. He didn’t jump quite as well as previous runs but that ground was as testing as you could get!
Nawar ran on Wednesday at Lingfield with Rab Havlin on board. He traveled really well in the race but as the pace quickened he remained one paced, not picking up and went from sitting second to 6th in the final furlong and a half. Over the next week we will hopefully get to the bottom of why he couldn’t get into top speed.
