A JOYOUS JULY
We’ve had a wonderful few weeks having had 6 winners and a number of placed efforts from our last 20 runners. I very much hope the horses remain in the same form until the end of the season.
George Cinq heads to Ascot on Saturday for the Shergar Cup Mile, he's been put up 5lb for his narrow defeat last Saturday, but has come out of that race in exceptional form. I expect him to put in another honest performance. Imperial State travels to Redcar in search of the hat trick. He won very impressively at Thirsk last Friday and seems to be getting better with racing. I'm sure he will take the step up in grade and drop back to 7f in his stride.
The team and I are still on a real high after Illusive returned to form last Saturday. To win a race at a festival such as Glorious Goodwood in our first season is more than I could wish for. Illusive had been stuggling this season and was in the grip of the handicapper, but a return to a fast run 1m1f race on a track he handles well did the trick. He'll go back there at the end of the month for a similar race.
Here are some of the highlights from the last few weeks.
