Bird to Love ran pretty poorly last night, she burnt herself out from the bad draw. In hind sight we probably shouldn’t have run but she well get over it. Next time we might look into dropping her in trip and see if we can find an apprentice race. We don’t want to run too often though because we’d like to save her for the turf.
There weren’t many takers for Born To Please’s race at Chepstow on Monday so we might as well have a go at it. The race is at 12:50 and as James is retained to ride Henry Oliver’s in the race Brendan Powell will ride. It’s not an ideal track for her and the ground will be very heavy indeed but if they get the rain they are expecting at least she should be able to cut throw it. The positive is she is bottom weight again which is a massive advantage racing on heavy ground.
