A nice run from The Lion Man at Stratford yesterday. He has been having some problems so its all about building his confidence back up, and Tabitha Worsley took a large step in the right direction with him.
He jumped and travelled well, and although the trip on the short side for him, and the first mile run at a bit of a crawl, he stayed on well and most importantly ran all the way to the line - a part that has been badly missing in his last few runs.
Fine today, although with a near miss after someone galloped into the back of him and skinned his hind leg! Onwards & upwards for 'Rory' from here. He will probably need to get back to fences to win, but he has grown & matured this summer so hopes are high going forwards.
BTO for Ceris - he looked fabulous in the paddock.
No visitors today, and the sun putting in a rare appearance which always makes the morning go easier!
Sorry to hear that Gary Allbutt is back in hospital - we send him, Nat & the boys our best wishes, and hope to hear some better news soon.
A bit of a lull on the building front, as we are waiting on the steel for the new barn. Frustrating, as now we have started just want to get it finished!
