Trainer seems determined to run him in the Arkle, and to get another 2 runs into him before then.
Have a lot of respect for PN, but it wouldn’t be the first time that pot hunting has taken priority over other’s interests. Fingers X’d the horse comes out of it all ok.
I hate Chepstow it’s a friggin swamp when it rains. Hope the ground isn’t too bad and he comes out of the race ok…wouldn’t have been my choice of a course but then PN’s the man and he knows the horse better than anyone.
I see he has not been declared for tomorrow’s race at Doncaster – can anyone (ie beckster!) shed any light on this?
David, could be that when he didn’t eat up the other day, he had all his declarations for this weekend scratched – afterall, if he wasn’t well enough today, I’m presuming he wouldn’ be well enough for tomorrow either.
DB, I was just going by what Beckster said above, that he hasn’t eaten up and that his participation was in doubt for today – so I was just assuming that if his participation was in doubt today, then it would be in doubt for tomorrow also, hence no declarations.
Apologies if I’m on the wrong track here as I know nothing about how not eating up affects a horse
