It was a beautiful day today which was a very nice change after all the rain we have had lately. We are supposed to be running Glory Hunter, Popaway, View the Dance (with El Raven) and Lady Barfad at Thorpe on Sunday but after all the rain I have a hunch it may be too soft and tacky even if we have a drying couple of days. The other option is Glory Hunter and Dancer to Charing and save the two mares for Higham the following week. It has been a rather trying season so far as we just haven't got soft ground horses this year and so can't capitalise on the bottomless ground.
