Bird ran another good race last night. The race was run very slowly which doesn’t really suit her but she still made up a lot of ground late on to snatch 4th. She did lose a bit of momentum having to pull wide to get a run, but I don’t think it cost us the win. We won’t be running her again on Wednesday as it wouldn’t be fair. There really isn’t any races for her at Kempton for months now which is a shame. We might have a crack at 2 miles around Lingfield, if she doesn’t take to it we will get her a holiday until the turf season starts. I’m sure she can win on the grass if the conditions fall right.
Misu Pete runs tomorrow at Chelmsford. The race is at 3pm; it’s over a mile and Ellie will ride him. It’s a similar situation to Truffle on Friday where these last minute meetings don’t attract a full field. He is drawn 3 so hopefully he can get a nice position on the rail; if he does he should run well.
