nickalexanderMonday December 19th… Unpleasant morning today, drizzle on top of frozen ground, fresh Monday morning horses all combining to create a trainer’s nightmare, all just about in unscathed but laid-back temperament put to the test! Happy about the forecast, turning mild and not too wet for the next week or so, no white Christmas this year.

Tomorrow we run Isla Patriot in the 1.50 at Musselburgh, 11 run, Lucy rides, a slight step up in class but I am hoping the drop back in trip to 2m 4f will suit. And then, at last, Buffalo Ballet runs in the bumper at 3.25 also with Lucy on board, 13 run, track won’t suit and the winners of the last two Musselburgh bumpers line up along with a runner up from Haydock that was subsequently sold for £100k, hmm, have to start somewhere.
