I thought Miracle of Medinah ran a fair race at Kempton. There were some progressive younger horses in the race and I don’t think he stayed the 7 furlongs. It’s a shame there wasn’t a 6 furlong version of the race. He’s had a few quick runs by his standards and he’s coped with them very well but we might give him a little bit of time to freshen up now. Hopefully the handicapper will relent a little more and we might have a good chance next time.
Bird For Life runs in the 5:05 at Ffos Las tomorrow. The race is over 14 furlongs; Ellie will ride her and she is drawn 1. It’s amazing the amount of times we pray Pete and Truffle to get drawn 1 because it actually matters to them; where as it might actually be a disadvantage to Bird tomorrow. It’s a full field of 16 runners and if she gets stuck in amongst horses she will find it hard to get out. On the plus side the ground should be very fair and this is a lower class than she competes at on the all-weather.
