We didn't run anything today as Horseheath was too quick. Tomorrow we are going to Garthorpe and running Popaway in the :Ladies, Velvet Steel in the Maiden, Budge in the restricted and Dancer in the conditions race. It could well be too soft for Budge but we want him to have a nice clear round with Kara our novice rider on board just to give him a run with no pressure to build his confidence back up after his ulcer ridden season last year. Tik (Velvet Steel) has enough class to go on any ground but she needs a run to understand that her wind is now working since her wind operation, Nick will be riding her. Popaway with Immie could be up against Palypso De Creek, probably the best pointer in the country, and Dancer is a dude who will get around in her own time but give Kara a lot of fun in the meantime. Fingers crossed they all come home safely and we have a great days racing
