ORCADIAN has been schooled twice now in the loose school and James Eustace is delighted with way he has taken to it. There are no imminent plans to run him yet but he should be ready to make his hurdling debut in the New Year. If he can transfer his flat form to hurdling he should be good enough to aim for Cheltenham or Aintree. He has been joined in his schooling sessions by CETSHWAYO who could also be ready to run over hurdles in the New Year.
BLUEBERRY TART looks as if she will get a chance to run at Southwell on Saturday in a mile handicap. She has not run there before so the surface is an unknown quantity. If she takes to it she should run well as she is in good form at home. She also has an entry at Wolverhampton on Monday and could run at both meetings.
The yearlings are coming on well now. There are 7 yearlings and a 2 year old that have all been recently broken in. They are now out on the heath daily and this week did 2 canters for the first time. 4 more yearlings have arrived this week and will now start their early education.
