    No excuses finishing 3rd after trying to put the race to bed 2 furlongs out

    Do think the horse will be better though over 12 furlongs

    Country Pyle stays over 10 furlongs  tomorrow [2.35 Leicester], but will be better odds this time as current price is 6-1

    Turns out Benoit told a little lie!

    Such a shame that he now faces a long suspension but is with a stable who back their jockeys so he will hopefully learn from this this and is being mentored by Frankie


    Benoit de la Sayette can resume riding from 17th October, after being banned for six months

    Admitted falling in with a "bad crowd" but is now back home living with his parents

    Got into the race easily 3 furlongs out but started hanging left again and faded into 4th

    Missile runs in the last race at Sandown today 

    She has been disappointing not transferring her good home work to the track, but this type of horse tends to put it all in at least once so currently 5-1 if todays that day

    Backed into odds on, but Tudhope and the other jockeys gifted the inform Oisin Murphy a easy lead and though she ran on into 2nd was too far back

    Not a surprise the Stewards interviewed all the jockeys after the race!

    Bit of a surprise to see Lady Rockstar dropped in trip tomorrow [3.40 Thirsk]

    But not such a surprise to see blinkers first time on her, even money if you think that will be the key to success

    Got a strange ride I thought bringing her solo down the outer, which she seemed to take offence to but hopefully the filly is Ok

    Search For A Song was obviously not okay but she is back and will try and win the Irish St Leger for the third year in a row on Sunday

    Ran a absolute shocker

    Aidan said he gave the wrong riding instructions and Sir Lamorak got too far back....well the horse has now moved over to a new stable...his son Joseph!

    Runs tomorrow at Leopardstown [3.15] and best odds at the moment is 5-1

  7. Declared [6.55pm]

    Jockey booking of Luke Morris would normally be a negative for me, but this could be a match in heaven as this galloper needs plenty of pushing and prodding

    Looks like being a each way price too with a first show of 14-1 [four places]

    As feared Spencer lived up to his nickname "Frank" and put the horse in no mans land 3 furlongs out when the race quickened up, which for a stayer like her was crucial

    Ran on well to get 3rd and if nothing else maybe that will now convince connections to step the filly up in trip 

    Snow Lantern sticks to a mile in France on Sunday but has to take on the "wonder horse" Baaed!

    But would always want to be with proven Group 1 form rather than potential and the 7-1 in the week was decent each way value about the filly

    Terrific debut run in 2nd

    Looked sure to win when pulled out to challenge the winner but ran green and started hanging to her left. Has a lovely future on this evidence 

    The exciting Country Pyle is declared to run on Friday night at Goodwood

  10. Went off a well backed market leader but dropped out like a light in the straight and was eased

    As said before something is not right with the horse, if they find and cure that problem...we will get a payday!

    Unplaced after looking like chasing home the brilliant winner a couple of furlongs out.

    Pretty sure she is not performing 100% at the moment, it’s either physical or trip/ground.

    Party House takes a drop in class tomorrow night [7.10 Curragh]

    First show is 11-2

    Donnacha O'Brien starting to reward our faith recently, and am told he has a nice 2 year old Galileo filly that should debut soon called

    Red Azalea 


    Finished a nice 3rd despite greenness in a Barrier trial earlier in the week at Dundalk
