We have been quiet over the past fortnight for no other reason than circumstances, however we are looking to spring back into life at Newbury tomorrow as Another Batt tackles Listed company for the fourth time. He has been an incredibly consistent horse and ran his best race stepped up to 7 furlongs, he should give his usual bold front running display.
James Garfield has pleased me since Goodwood, he is a horse that to my mind will continue to improve all year. He will head to York this week, most likely to the Acomb Stakes (Group 3) however the Group 2 Gimcrack has certainly not been ruled out. No matter what happens we are delighted to be involved and I very much hope that both horses can give their true running.
I am currently in Deauville at the Arqana Sales. This is where the best of the yearlings France has to offer are sold, with over 450 lots spread over 4 days.
I purchased some lovely yearlings here last year, and although they have not yet been ready to run on the racecourse, they are developing into exciting athletes for next year.
