We were encouraged by Dancing Shadow’s run on Saturday in the Coral Scottish National where he was beaten 19 lengths . He was doing all his best work at the end, with the trip at Ayr just a bit on the short side for him. It was a really good performance and he ran on really strongly over the last furlong, so we have big plans for him next season.

Our Perth runners – Ut Majeur Aulmes, Get Wishing, Bindon Mill and My Matador – are on their way to Perth and we’re looking forward to running all of them, as they all have a chance.

The horses have been earning a well earned break. In the header image are Exmoor Mist, Call me Westie and Admirals Secret and this one is Oscar Cross, Mahlers First and Run to Milan.
