HAMELIN HEADS TO ROYAL ASCOT
It's hugely exciting for the team and I to have our first Royal Ascot runner in the form of Hamelin today. Every aspiring trainer dreams about Ascot. I suspect we've been the only people in the country doing a rain dance for the past couple of weeks.
It's been sometime since I’ve been able to run him on the grass as he must have cut. His All Weather form has been solid, but I have always been of the opinion that he is better suited by the turf. His pedigree and action would certainly suggest this.
Frankie and stall 3 are two huge plus points in what looks to be a very competitive race against a few unexposed rivals. I've been delighted with our preparation into the race and now can't wait to put that saddle on.
