Vivid and recent at the moment, welcome after a moist and gloomy spell. Our season is about to swing into motion with two runners at Carlisle tomorrow, 9 horses entered at Kelso on Saturday and about the identical once more at Ayr on Monday. Actually trying ahead to getting going once more and we begin off with a beautiful younger horse within the 1.55 at Carlisle the place the bottom is sweet; Warriors Story confirmed loads of promise in his first couple of begins on the monitor final season previous to shedding his manner somewhat however he’s solely 5 and bred to remain and enhance with age so I’m hoping he’ll show a lucky addition to the group, he begins off over 2m 4f and Sean Quinlan rides, 11 run.

Trainers appear to be in a little bit of hassle once more having rejected the apparently beneficiant supply of an additional £5m in prize cash from ARC. I share the view expressed in at the moment’s Racing Submit that this could possibly be a pivotal second in racing’s governance going ahead, I received’t bore you with the small print however it will likely be attention-grabbing to see what occurs subsequent, the current state of affairs is untenable. What this, and numerous different initiatives beforehand referenced right here, does present is that the cash is there and there’s no excuse for the very poor ranges of prize cash that some racecourses appear to think about acceptable. It isn’t.
