Frog came third!! She ran a cracking race and led for most of the way before tiring on the soft ground two fences from home. We were delighted with her as we know how much better she will be on good ground and the two horses that beat her are good horses that have already run a few times and shown a lot of promise. All being well now she will run at Cottenham on New Years Eve where the going should be more to her liking.
For Whitfield next week-end we have entered Cloudy Moon in the maiden. Laverty in the restricted, Doctor Kingsley in the Intermediate and Unnoitmakessense in the club members. The weather looks as though it is going to be rather wet this week, so soft ground is likely which is why we didn't enter Velvet Shadow as she is that bit younger and it might pull her about a bit.
There are 174 entries for Whitfield so it will be very competitive racing.
