A damp and blustery two days at Musselburgh but good competitive racing and a great atmosphere this afternoon. Of our three runners Cancan and Duyfken both ran tremendous races, Wakool missed the break and was never able to land a blow – he seems much better in a small field. On to Carlisle tomorrow where I expect the ground to be soft though not sure how much rain they will have had today. We have three runners starting with Fortescue Wood making a belated debut over fences in the 2.02, he’s a good horse and we were pleased with his return to action following injury at Haydock last time but I think he wants further than this minimum trip now and the main focus will be on a fluent round of jumping being his first time in what is a good race – Danny rides and 5 run.
The competition is also pretty tough for Bluebell Glen who makes her hurdling debut in the 2.32, she was a fine 2nd in her last bumper and will make a lovely jumper but again tomorrow will be mainly about making sure nothing goes wrong – Bruce rides and 12 run.
Finally we run Wavelength in the 4.07, we were very pleased with his 4th over the course last time out and he shouldn’t be far away if he can build on that – Sean rides and 12 run.
