nickalexanderFriday December 2nd… A fine winter’s morning today but a miserable evening now, gales and sleet. Plenty going on, mainly on the all-weather here but Flaming Thistle, Amulree and Native Coll ventured over to Lucinda’s woodchip.

On Sunday we run Forcefield in the 3.30 at Kelso, 10 run, Lucy rides and the ground is soft. He is in good heart and ready to run, the extended 3m 3f trip shouldn’t be a problem but I am wondering whether ground as soft as this will suit. Lucy also rides Double Default in the Borders National at 2.30 (she is due to get up at 4am tomorrow to go and school this horse in Cumbria on her way to Wetherby where she rides Danny John Boy in the 2.55), she also rides Sported and Played for Lucy Normile in the 3.00.
