We are looking forward to a lovely days racing at Edgcote today - The ground has been very well watered and although it wont suit the top of the ground horses it will be safe ground, which is the main thing. We have four horses going and all are going to be novice ridden.....Both Lucy (We Never Give Up) ) and Ben (Too much too soon) have fallen off twice at Edgcote so hopefully it will be third time lucky and they will do a clear round. Scott who used to be our novice rider last year is coming back for the rides on Cloud and Pasta. He knows both horses well and they should enjoy his style of riding. There is no pressure as we just want them to enjoy themselves and finish the season having had a fun time and wanting to do more. This is particularly the case with Pasta (Babbiloora)who is still not 100% after her early season problem but needs to know what the game is all about before being turned out for the summer.
Popaway is doing really well - Roy is coming over to see her at Nicola's before racing and apparently the foal is suckling and she loves it - Huge relief as she can be somewhat aggressive....phew!
Off to muck out and do the picnic. Fingers crossed all horses and jockeys come home safely
