Jon Hughes and Jo Stainer in first lot to watch the horses work. Quite foggy so we couldn’t see them until they got towards us but we still saw enough and good to catch up with Jon and Jo.

Warren Marston was in and we worked Spice Girl, Lady Vitesse, Dr Dunraven, Lord Condi, Fairmount, Somewhere To Be, Cut and Run, Pomme De Nuit, Hartshorne Abbie, Mister Valentine and Cup of Ambition. All the others either did a swinging canter or cantered.

Two runners today and both in the same race at Taunton – Madame Fiona (Andrew Tinkler) and Twentyoneblackjack (Harry Stock) and both need to improve on their hurdling debuts but both need the experience. Twentyoneblackjack will have a holiday after his run today and is going back to his owners to have a short break and return for better ground in the spring.
