Martin’s Blog 6th February

Another stunning morning here in the North Cotswolds – frosty but sunny and some fabulous photos / video footage taken of our horses on the gallops. Paul Davis here for the morning before a day at Doncaster where we have two runners.

As well as running our Racing Club and in-house Racing Partnerships, Paul manages The Lucky Circle Partnership who own Lucky Circle who runs in the concluding Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle under Patrick Cowley. She’s found it difficult in novice hurdles so will hopefully find life easier today and we’ve had to be patient and wait for good ground which we have got today so will give her every chance to put in a solid run.

Earlier in the card dual Cheltenham winning mare Brillare Momento runs over hurdles under Sam Twiston-Davies. She’s another who we have waited for decent ground for and she makes her belated seasonal debut. She’s been to Henrietta Knight over Christmas for schooling sessions and we hope to revert to fences with her soon. I’m hopeful of a good return to the track.
