Martin’s Blog 18th July

Work morning and Andrew Tinkler and Mark Caswell both in to ride out. We worked Miss Condi, Enforcement, Cut & Run, Sporty Yankee, Spice Girl, Altesse De Guye. All the rest cantered. Ocean Eleven schooled 2nd lot and jumped well.

Worcester this evening with Buckle Street back over hurdles. He famously won the York Macmillan Charity race in June with Belinda and then nothing went to plan next time at Salisbury on the flat where he totally missed the break and didn’t enjoy the ground either. He schooled well last week and although it is a competitive little race I’m hopeful of a solid run from him.

Chequered View arrived yesterday from HRH The Princess Royal and has settled in well. She is by of Passing Glance and out of The Princess’s mare Blue Plaid and is a lovely stamp so we look forward to cracking on with her.
