    Linda is not having the best of starts from her new base.

    I’m sure Linda Perrett

    (SIC)

    is absolutely crushed not to be meeting whatever performance matrix you have set her.

    They’re running like drains at present, certainly, but I’m sure nobody’s getting too suicidal over it yet. It’s been a trying, itinerant last six to nine months for Miss Perratt, but she’ll probably come good eventually. I seem to recall her string having similarly slow starts to the season in both 2005 and 2007 also.

    Linda

    Perratt

    ‘s slow start pales into insignificance when compared with yet another slow start by Donal Nolan who hasn’t recorded a winner since 2004 in 400+ attempts. That being said, Dubai To Barnsley came close to ‘ruining’ that record when finishing a neck second to Silvanus at Musselburgh recently.

    Nolan does have the consolation of picking up a regular supply of ‘best turned out’ prizes.

    Linda Perrat has proven that she knows how to train a racehorse. The winners will come.

    BELIEVE Tom!!

    At the moment her horses are strugling to get out of last place.

    What was the real reason for her moving out and Mr Semple moving back into Belstane Stables?

    Gordon McDowell gave her the sack as far as I know and instated Ian Semple as trainer.

    Why I wonder?

    Did she not nearly amass the same number of winners that Ian Semple managed the year before?

    I thought Mr Semple the year before had decided to call it a day and enjoy retirement.

    Why the return of Mr Semple and not a new trainer found?

    Tom , I am not sure what your MO is , but each post seems to be moaning or knocking something , albeit in a very clever fashion

    Can I ask that just maybe you would consider posting in the big blue forum and you will find yourself in the company of kindred spirits , which I am sure you will bask in the glory of being the star performer

    Meanwhile in this small outpost we can have a bitch about real racing issues

    good luck to you ………

    A first, a second and a fourth from three runners at Musselburgh suggests that whatever was hindering the Perratt string previously might now be behind them. All three put in decent efforts.

    I would have provided stiffer opposition to Birkside than what turned up last night. It was an unpleasant sight to see what she’d done to Silver Rime at Haydock on Saturday. In similar vein Cold Quest has been tailed off for her on both starts since leaving John Gosden.

    David

    What was the problem with Silver Rime? It must be said that Cold Quest went rather dramatically downhill over the course of a month when swapping stables.

    The problem with taking other people’s cast-offs is that there is normal a good reason for them being so. Mind you, that doesn’t stop some trainers re-vitalising newcomers to their stables.

    Jamieson Gold was well outclassed by Fremen but did at least make a mark in handicap yesterday and Shunkawakhan had a decent go from the front.

    I hope from Perratt’s point of view that this apparent ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ isn’t a train coming the other way….

    Davidjohnson, Are you implying Linda Perratt is purposefully ruining the racing careers of these two horses?
