A work day for all the horses and the final bit of hard work for One For Arthur. He is on course for Aintree in ten days and today he flew up the gallops with regular work rider Erin. From now until Aintree he will keep cantering but at a lower level and we will school him early next week.

A long awaited first win for OrionInverness this afternoon. Back over fences and at a staying track he jumped with aplomb to stay on well over the two and a half mile trip. This run will have done his confidence a lot of good and we will look for a similar race for him while the going is on the soft side. Poor Borris had a rough few runs at the start of the season, falling when looking to be closing…
A heavy first fence fall for Ryalex and Derek made our trip to Carlisle shorter than expected. Ryalex seems to be fine on his return home, but Derek has gone to hospital to be assessed for a wrist injury; he will not ride at Ayr tomorrow.

Days like today are the reason that we train racehorses. One For Arthur showed his brilliance over a long distance and with Derek guiding him he was produced three out to win decisively after a good leap at the last. He probably needs to go up eight pounds or so to get into the 2017 Aintree Grand National and if he does then that will be his next planned run.
