We worked some horses up the back of the hill on Saturday - Ephraim went particularly well and is on track to run in the 3m Novice Hurdle race at Doncaster at the end of the month, which is a trial for the Cheltenham Festival; fingers crossed he can repeat his course and distance win from December.
We have had a very quiet week because of the ground.. Many meetings have been abandoned and temperatures have got down to -8 degrees, which is fairly cold I must say.
We worked some horses up the all weather today - Fine Parchment went very well upsides Bridal Suite. Seventh Sky is absolutely flying ahead of the Peter Marsh at Haydock on Saturday. He won up there 5 weeks ago and will be partnered by his winning jockey Gavin Sheehan again. He should have a good chance as conditions should suit. Expedite worked really well this morning and will probably run at Ascot on Saturday. Denis O'Regan came in this morning and rode Dukes Den - he worked well and we are looking to run him soon.
We have quite a few entries over the next few days. We are hoping for some warmer weather as we have lots of horses who need better ground.
Our amateur jockey Kara is riding in the Greatwood Charity Race at Newbury on the 5th March, so is looking for sponsorship!!! Click on this link for more information - https://www.justgiving/com/kara-gregory2
