In what has been a quiet week it was great to get two winners at my local track Bangor on Wednesday.

This weekend will also be unusually quiet for me as I’m just sitting on my hands waiting for the rain as the ground is just too quick for the majority of my runners. It’s not just me who is crying out for rain as the small field sizes indicate! As such I’m just sending one to Wetherby on Saturday followed by one at Cheltenham on Sunday.


LOFGREN (Brian Hughes) wins at CARTMEL 27/8/18


Wetherby 2.15

Jockey – Will Kennedy

I’ve put a line through his run at Kelso a few weeks ago, he was jumped into at the 2nd fence and then again a few fences later. After that he just didn’t want to know and I can’t blame him!

Lofgren is one of mine that should enjoy the ground and the trip will be right up his street, I’d say he has a chance in this.


Gray Day

Cheltenham 1:15

Jockey – Lorcan Murtagh

It’s always great to have a runner at Cheltenham but my chances of being in the winners’ enclosure today are unlikely.

Gray Day has been off for a year so it’s great for the team and especially the owners to have him running again. He’ll have no problems with the trip and as long as it doesn’t get too quick he’ll also be fine by the ground but I suspect there may be one or two who may prove too good for him.
