August was a fantastic month for the yard with 17 winners at a strike-rate of 25% taking us to the top of the Trainers Championship!

We had two runners at Newton Abbot on Thursday bidding to continue our excellent run of form, with Erdeli in the handicap hurdle and The Big Freeze in the concluding bumper. The former is a slightly frustrating individual and he looked the winner until hesitating at the final flight, eventually going down by just 1/4 length. Still, it was another good performance for his owners, the South Wales Argus and Select Racing and he is a consistent sort who continues to give his owners lots of fun.

The Big Freeze made no mistake on just his second start under rules and I am sure he will improve for a trip and a few flights of hurdles!

We have a relatively quiet week ahead before the National Hunt break for ten days or so, which will hopefully give us all a chance to recharge the batteries before the winter season really starts!
