Budge has clearly still got his ulcer problem as he was trying to kick his tummy in the lorry and looked really uncomfortable walking around the paddock, He walks like a supreme athlete at home but the stress of travelling and racing turns him into a cripple. He needs time and more ulcer treatment and then I am sure he will be fine.
Lady Barfad was in a really hot race as they didn't have an Intermediate and kept with the pace for a circuit jumping really well but then made a mistake and the front runners got away from her so Clare pulled her up - She almost certainly needs another wind operation as her last one was two years ago and they can need doing on an annual basis. So pleased they have all returned safely and we had a lovely get together around the lorry afterwards. Rather sad it is all coming to an end............
