Conor Shoemark, Abi Stock and Andrew Tinkler all in to ride out this morning. Cul De Poule schooled this morning with a lead from Champion Court and jumped well. 2nd Lot we took Spice Girl (Conor) and Fairmount (Tinks) to Jon Trice-Rolph’s for a jumping session as I felt both would benefit from it and I was really pleased with how they both jumped. Both have won over hurdles but it is never any harm to give them a refresher and the jockeys always benefit too.

Lady Vitesse runs this afternoon at Ludlow and makes her debut over hurdles. She didn’t quite get home at Huntingdon in her bumper as she ran too freely so we hope she will settle more today and hurdles will give her something to concentrate on. She has schooled well at home and Harry Stock rides her.
