 We walked Edgcote and were very pleasantly surprised how good the ground is - They have done a fantastic job and the ground is safe, so we are going to give Secret a run. She hasn't completed yet so it would just be nice for her to get round

Ella and Field Exhibition (Flo) had a fantastic run yesterday in what was probably the hottest Ladies race of the season. She got a great start and very bravely was on the inner the whole time tracking Southfield Theatre with Ravished on her outside. It was a 3.2 mile race and Flo tired before the finish but it was very exciting to see how well they both jumped at such speed. Flo has been raced so many times under rules that she needs to start enjoying it again, and she certainly seemed to love it yesterday. A perfect horse for a novice rider.  It was a beautiful day and the picnics were out. We are hoping to have the same today. I haven't got great memories of Edgcote after last year so I am keeping everything crossed that we have a jolly day out with everyone back safely.
