We have been treated to a week of glorious sunshine which, after three months of relentless rain, is nothing more than both the horses and the staff deserve!

Thankfully, we will finally have the opportunity to start running some of our fast-ground horses, but judging by the number of entries at recent jumps meetings (70+ in one handicap at Worcester) we certainly aren’t the only ones in a hurry to make up for lost time!

However, despite the weather we managed to beat last year’s tally of winners in both May and June this time around and, with the horses in great form at present, hopefully we can continue that record this month.
