    Completely agree Grass. Don’t think a run like that was part of the plan, but he got there nicely. He went straight into the notebook after that

    Very decent prospect, who should win a few I’d think. Hopefully we can get a few quid off him

    Ho My Lord runs again today, and I’ll be very interested in Firm Footings too, I have a bit on him ew but I think he’s mark fishing for the Plate.

    Thought about betting him Grass, but I want to bet him double figures somewhere down the line. Think he can go well though today at 6’s

    Just as well we didn’t back him. Firm Footings did OK but I think his jumping needs to improve a bit, although he’s only 5 and a biggish horse so plenty of time.

    Was hoping that High Treason would do the thread proud yesterday, but he was thumped, and I think we’ve already seen how good he is.

    Fairly happy with the thread so far, and a big week for it, one to put up first

    The Abbey
    Really liked how he ran last week at Leopardstown, on ground he wasn’t expected to go on, and also fairly unfamcied. He should win some more races.

    Now on to Ballyburn. Doubt I’ll put up a notebook horse as good as this again, or certainly with this much potential.

    Just delighted how he’s turned out, and although not my biggest Antepost ever, I’ll be buzzing if he does it

    Really chuffed to bits with Ballyburn, and doubt I can beat that one again. Obviously a few top notchers from the stable as usual, but I genuinely think he’ll be the pick of the bunch

    That bumper winner Kopek des Bordes looked pretty impressive. One tap on the bum and he left them standing.

    Yeah nice performance Grass, hopefully back out at Punchestown too

    I ended up with Friends yesterday in The Honeysuckle, but really liked the run from A Penny A Hundred, could see me betting her in the future

    Very nice burst at the end, in the Bumper at Ayr, and definitely one I’ll be looking forward to following next year.

    Midnight Strike
    Very impressed by him on Sunday at The Curragh. Obviously early days, but very tempted to bet him for The Coventry.

    I’d be quite disappointed, even at this early stage, if he doesn’t turn out to be very decent
