  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
  2. Poor run so will be a bit lighter next time he runs
  3. Encouraging to see her strong in the market on seasonal debut tomorrow at Haydock...11-4 into the current 2-1
  4. Almost last 3 furlongs out, and the first of the market leaders to be ridden
  5. Strange run showing early pace to lead and then eased by Boudot when headed, though the first two home were isolated on the opposite side of the track
  6. Horse comes back in trip tomorrow (2.05 Compiegne) Been put in as the market leader (15-8)
  7. Impressive Win as looked one of the first beat a couple of furlongs out, and will be interesting to see what his talented trainer targets next for the horse
  8. Le Nomade runs tomorrow (3.05) Trainer said recently that the horse has a nice future, but might need to be gelded...so last run possibly tomorrow as a man! Opening show is 3-1
  9. Nice to see the horse show what he is capable of Winning cozily, and will be surprised if not kept to a grass campaign now
  10. Another solid week finishing TIed 17th This week Yu is 150-1 with Bet 365
  11. Went off at 7-1! But was always being run off his feet before staying on in the straight, and would certainly have placed if the jockey had been a bit more hard on the horse but he knew the front two were gone so let him come home on his own stride. However the colt looks a nice stayer in the making and this run was another positive lesson in his education
  12. Xaario was awkward leaving the stalls and not long after was pulled up, later being diagnosed with a Pelvis injury. Fair chance the horse will return to the track, but obviously not the ideal start to his 3-y-o career
  13. A warm favourite to beat Snow Lantern today, but came 2nd which time might prove to be excellent form Though on today’s running this horse needs to go up in trip, and then should win some nice races
  14. I thought she looked a bit special Winning today on her seasonal debut at 3-1 against quality maidens
  15. Really sad to hear that Wetlands lost his life when taking that heavy fall 2 out
  16. Silastar is up in trip and has first race on the turf tomorrow in the last race at Longchamp Will the money come again, first show is 7-1
  17. Goes on the grass tomorrow in the last race at Newbury Tough handicap, but five places are available (6-1 currently on offer)
  18. Looks like being a juicy each way price for his seasonal debut tomorrow at Newbury (4.30) Currently 22-1
  19. Wetlands goes for four in a row tomorrow at Ayr (4.10) Already into 9-4 from 11-4
  20. Derab & Snow Lantern Both declared for the opening maiden at Newbury on Sunday [5-4/7-4] Should be a race if they both run, but the Hannon filly was a non runner earlier in the week due to fast going
  21. Trainer said yesterday about Western Soldier "I always liked him but he is very immature physically and mentally...still very heavy and should improve with time"
  22. 50-1 with Boylesports Big ask straight into a Group 3, but if to justify his 2000 Guineas entry then a respectable run maybe on the cards
  23. had a clear lead in early part of race, but dropped away tamely and like most of the stable horses so far looked like the race was needed
  24. 110-1 with Bet 365 is worth chancing this week for Yu
  25. Absolutely runs in a red hot maiden tomorrow at Leopardstown [2pm] With stable still waiting for a winner a each way price looks assured, opened up at 14-1
