A fine place to start….

nickalexandersmallerWednesday June 8th…Ho, ho, ho – I’ve never had a runner on the flat but I have just entered Daasij at Royal Ascot on Tuesday, and, no, I haven’t lost my marbles – his flat form is well up to it and although he’s been mixing it in a much lower grade over hurdles he is clearly in great heart, there is only one problem and that’s the, err, trainer – does he have a clue?  Probably not but I can’t see what’s wrong with the idea apart from it seems completely and utterly bonkers, oh well, a few (more) sleepless nights beckon and of course, it will need to rain but they’ve had 35mm in the last three days and the forecast is unsettled (wouldn’t have entered otherwise).



Only Daasij and Amulree being exercised now, The Paddy Premium having a little break after his win on Sunday and the rest all at grass.  The joy of seeing them relaxing is tempered by watching several of them looking increasingly pregnant and once again Seeking Power has stolen the show by turning into an elephant, I therefore had to bring him in yesterday and the scales proved my point, he has put on 50kg in 3 weeks, restricted grazing and the walking machine for him, seems like a long time until Hexham in October….
