More schooling this morning and a few horses starting back in work.
At Kilduff Scu rode Tap Night as a lead horse and we jumped some of the three and four year olds over the logs, tyres and hurdles: Following Scu were Emissaire, Blaydon, and Simone. Next it was the brush hurdles for those three and also Rivabodiva, Chasseur De Tetes, Momkinzain and Rossamilan. Finally, Rossamilan jumped up the chase fences; he is a brilliant jumper and while he has yet to run on the track he could progress to novice chasing quicker than usual.
On the homepage is a video of Tap and Emissaire, Simone and Rivabodiva and Chasseur and Blaydon. It is in slow motion but it still all happens rather quickly..
We have had a couple more come back into work; A late arrival last night was the five year old Grand Morning by Midnight Legend who arrived from Martinstown Stud. He was in training last season but was rather backward and he looks to have matured really well over the summer. Imjoeking has had a good break since injuring himself in the Topham Chase at Aintree and he was very fresh this morning, and getting ready for more of his babysitting and point to pointing duties is Badger Foot.
Mark left with Ballycool this afternoon and headed to Bangor where Cool runs in the handicap chase. He is a course winner, having won under these conditions last seaon and we are hoping for a good show.
