Misu Pete probably ran slightly below what we were looking for yesterday evening, the slight extra poundage, the possibility that we made a fair bit of use of him to keep the rails position and that his best performances have come from sitting off the pace probably all combined to produce the overall performance.
If you follow this link you can see our two Two Year Old fillies breezing yesterday morning; their work will gradually be wound up and both of them are pleasing (with the potential to be exciting!!) as I hope the video shows.
One final thing; Spice Fair found the regime and terrain on Dartmoor not quite as he thought it would be with the result that he became something of a conveyance for the Hunt Staff; going at the balanced pace of the hunt after a life in racing seemed a bit slow to Spice Fair!! He came back to Rowdown over the holidays and the photo shows being ridden by Mike yesterday morning; we will happily employ him as our hack, at least over the rest of Winter, and everyone is pleased to see him back in his old Box.
