A fine day, mild with a drying breeze.  One runner at Wetherby tomorrow; Donny Boy in the 3.45 – the ground is currently soft, hopefully not too tacky.  He’s been ready to run for a few weeks now and several plans have been thwarted by the weather but he still seems in very good order and tomorrow’s race looks ideal even if he’d prefer slightly better ground – Lorcan Williams rides and 6 run.

Slightly underwhelming results for the yard on Saturday after such a good run with Ballyfort finishing 5th, Up Helly Aa King 4th at Newcastle and Elvis Mail 7th of 17 at Uttoxeter.  Ballyfort needs ridden more patiently, Up Helly wasn’t suited by the sticky ground, Elvis was exactly where I wanted him to be turning for home but didn’t stay on the heavy ground in a race that was run at searching pace.
