We have a runner over hurdles and on the flat tomorrow. We have been waiting for the rain to run DEDUCE and it has finally arrived. She goes to Warwick to run in a 2 mile 5 furlong mares handicap hurdle and faces 10 opponents. As Jack Quinlan is riding at Taunton we have secured the services of Paddy Brennan who is in good form and has ridden a winner for us before. DEDUCE, as always, has been working well at home so we hope Paddy Brennan can work the oracle on her tomorrow.
HIGHFALUTNG runs at Kempton in a 10 furlong Novice race. He is drawn 3 of only 7 runners and will be ridden by Ryan Tate. He is a recent acquisition from the Horses In Training Sale where he was bought for 6,000 guineas from the Luca Cumani yard. This is the same price we paid for DIRECTORY from this sale last year so we hope he can be as successful. He is nice big horse who has ben on holiday most if his life so far as he has been backward. We were encouraged by the fact that Luca considered him worth keeping in training as a 4 year old and he has just needed time to mature. He has had 2 runs to date and he should be suited by Kempton. It will be interesting to see how he goes tomorrow.
