Gilgamesh ran a huge race in the Wokingham last Saturday. He made steady progress weaving his way through the field to finish an excellent 7th beaten just 2 ½ lengths. He could well have finished closer with a clear run. He’s a wonderful big horse with a great character. The Bunbury Cup at Newmarket’s July meeting will be his next stop.
Having reflected on Royal Ascot we have begun to put targets in the diary for both Another Batt and James Garfield. After long discussions with the Gredley’s we'll aim towards the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest in Deauville with James Garfield.
Another Batt will also be packing his bags as he heads to Sweden for the Zawawi Cup on the 15th of July. After his epic win in Turkey last September we know he's a good traveller.
Concierge and Strawberry Jack both made exciting debuts this week finishing in the frame. Their delighted owners will have a huge amount of fun as the season progresses.
