There is no action on the racecourse this week but there is plenty of action on the gallops. There is a real buzz around Newmarket Heath now as the start of the turf season is just over 2 weeks away. Spring is definitely here but there was a definite chill in the air this morning despite the efforts of the sun. James worked 2 lots up the Al Bahahtri all weather gallop so is hopeful of having quite a few horses ready to run relatively early in the season.
The 2 year olds look, at this stage, as if they will be the first runners and James is hoping to have a runner in the first 2 year old race of the year. There are 2 or 3 other 2 year olds that could be ready to run in the first few weeks of the season.
Override’s form obtained a boost yesterday when Meelup, who finished second to him, won a handicap yesterday.
