We take Rainbow Jazz to Windsor for the first time this afternoon in their Mile Handicap, his first run since the beginning of November. It is a tightly handicapped race with a mixture of some fairly exposed people and, at least three, unexposed guys from significant stables having their first run in a Handicap and about whom it is really hard to form a judgement. Our person is athletic and has always shown ability particularly in two good class Maidens at Goodwood and Newbury over the Summer and in just getting touched off close home in a competitive Leicester Nursery at the end of October. He will come on, at least some, for what he achieves this pm and with Nicola’s Claim has a really decent chance at the weights with the caveat that it is equally difficult to guage the ability of some people who could be really effective three year olds in Handicaps over the Summer.
We were pleased to see so many people at our Open Morning yesterday and the two Two Year Old Fillies moved well upsides with Roodeparis with Bay Fortuna powering along in behind them.
Finally, if you follow this link, you can see the video of Bird for Life’s much deserved win at Kempton a week ago last Wednesday; no danger, this time, of her losing the race and as this Blog is written we are waiting on the Ballot for her engagement at the Sunbury track’s final meeting of the Winter AW Season; the Yard very much hopes that she does get in.
