I have been on a tour of the UK this week, with Uttoxeter on Monday, Perth on Tuesday and Goodwood on Wednesday before returning home!

Though our high-profile runner of the week Spirit Of Adjisa was ultimately unable to stay the marathon trip at Goodwood, it has been a really good week for the yard with four winners, three seconds and a third.

One of this week’s winners made the headlines this week, with Slip winning in the ownership of Lisa Manley, who helps travel lots of our runners, drove to Perth and led up the horse. Though she was unable to watch the race through nerves (she waited in the car park until after the race!), she was certainly very happy afterwards and there were a few celebratory balloons outside Slip’s box when they returned at 5pm this afternoon!

With plenty of entries for next week, I hope we can add to the recent flurry of winners!
