No Secrets - Will run at Sandown on Saturday

Well I hope that everyone has enjoyed their Easter weekend?  I know my kids certainly did and enjoyed an Easter egg hunt around Pond House and we certainly have quite a lot of chocolate in our house right now!

Unfortunately we did not get a winner in the last few days but the horses have been running well and just hitting the post so to speak!  At Haydock on Saturday Shotavodka ran really well in a competitive handicap chase to finish second.  This was his first try at three miles and he seemed to get the trip well and this now opens up more opportunities for him in the future.  He is not over big in size but he jumped really well and we were delighted with his run.  Heath Hunter also ran a great race to finish second in the handicap hurdle.  He probably just got his nose in front on the run in but went down fighting to the Jonjo O’Neill trained Carlton Jack.  The ground was lively enough for our seven year old and he does appreciate a bit more cut in the ground but it was still a fine run.  He holds a few entries this week but whether he runs or not will depend on ground conditions.

      Problema Tic - runs at Perth

There are five race meetings on today, the over the sticks at Perth, Taunton and Southwell plus flat cards at Epsom and Catterick.  David runs Problema Tic up at Perth in the 5.00pm hndicap chase.  He ran okay up at Ayr on his latest start over hurdles and is dropping down the weights but does have to step up on form on recent runs to take a hand in the finish.  We have sent travelling head lad Craig Wylie to Scotland as he will understand what the locals are saying, am not talking about you Sean!  Keep the Cash is our only other runner of the day but he is running a bit closer to home, at Taunton, in the 5.25pm race, the second race on the card of their evening meeting.  He does have to improve on recent form to figure in this race and young Michael Heard is on board.
