PERIPHERIQUE has had a longer summer break than planned due to the Covid situation but she has done really well and consequently it has taken longer than usual to get her fit. We have waited to find some decent ground for her as she doesn't want it too soft and Plumpton tomorrow should be fine as long as they don't get any more rain. We would consider taking her out if the ground does deteriorate. She has been schooling well and Jack Quinlan thinks she has done particularly well for her summer break. He can't ride her tomorrow so Harry Bannister takes the reins and he has ridden her before. She will definitely improve for the run but we hope she can run a nice race. Although she is only 4 we think she will jump a fence in time and we plan to take that route with her when the time is right.
