With the turf season over, the flat runners are now mainly at Newcastle, Wolverhampton and Southwell. Last night we had two runners at Newcastle. A first time out 2yo by Havana Gold; Golden Sandbanks and Lightening Charlie who was making his debut for IJR. Both pleased me. Especially Golden Sandbanks who ran professionally and will undoubtedly come on for the run. Ideally I’d like to geld him and turn him away until the spring.
We also had Karasheni over hurdles at Catterick. He’s only 3 and although ran well first time out at Sedgefield, he’s struggled a bit since. I think we will see the best of him next Spring when he’s a bit stronger.
We have no runners this weekend but a busy day on Monday at Musselburgh.
