We gelded Poet Pete after the third of his Maiden runs last April and have given him something of an extended break over four months to strengthen and mature; he goes to Chepstow for their Mile Handicap under Philip Prince (who slightly earlier in his career used to ride work for us regularly) and we are looking for him to show some improvement on what he achieved in Maiden company in the Spring.
An interesting day tomorrow at Ffos Las with both Bird for Life and Chromium going to Ffos Las under Ellie Mackenzie, the later going up to seven furlongs, a trip that looked defo to suit in his last two runs over six in Nursery company; and the great news from Salisbury tomorrow evening is that Threediamondrings' race has a flip start, no stalls in sight . . . . . . . . . .
If you go here you can now see the full details of the spiffing grey Telescope Colt that I touched on yesterday; just nb that in our enthusiasm yesterday we said he was a half brother to Bayston Hill (who incidentally could run at Chelmsford on Saturday); his winning dam is actually the half sister to BH but that doesn't alter how pleased we were to get him through the good offfices of Oliver St Lawrence for £1500!!
