Morning Time flattered to deceive as he made up ground quickly and looked very competitive until fading after the last at Carlisle, coming fourth. There is something that is stopping him in his races and we will investigate further.
The new french horse, Argentix has settled in and had a canter and jump in the school. He is a winner and has been placed over fences and will be campaigned this summer. He is a super looking horse, a light framed 16.2 hands and moves beautifully. Thanks to Anthea Morsehead for pre-training him so well, and to his owner Anna Bramall for sending him here.
Hexham tomorrow with six horses and as always we will check the going before running them
My father's point to pointer Hey Listen runs in the three mile maiden hurdle. He has shown bits of ability including when winning the maiden at Friars Haugh in March and should be suited by the trip.
Ballycool is back from a break and looks strong and well. There are a couple of front runners, and a true run race will suit him.
Bescot Springs has a light weight but sometimes finds it harder in a higher grade of race. However, he was fabulous last season winning three times and he retains his enthusiasm, being labeled 'a tank' this morning by his usual work rider Beth.
Vertigo is back on good ground after showing a good level of ability on heavy last winter. He will stay every inch of the trip and has won at Hexham in the past.
Voyage A New York's last run was in the Grand Sefton at Aintree when he fell at Bechers. He has been given lots of time to come back to form and while he prefers softer ground, he seems well at home.
Finally we run newcomer Dancing Amy. An athletic filly she has a strength of character that should stand her in good stead.
