We take Misu Pete to Chelmsford and Mistry to Wolverhampton tomorrow and we will touch on these two guys tomorrow, Misu Pete will be ridden by David Probert for the first time and he will run off four pounds below his last winning mark (and six pounds below that on which he ran when he was so unlucky at Chelmsford under Oisin Murphy last April).
Yesterday at Southwell saw one of those fairy tales that makes racing such a fascinating and marvellous sport. General Tufto is an eleven year old gelding who will be twelve in ten days time and who first raced at Newbury in the Summer of 2007; he has run in 187 races and has won 17 times and been placed a further 42 times; yesterday was his 100th (one hundred!!) start at Southwell and he duly powered clear in the final furlong to win decisively by two and a half lengths. A credit to everyone involved with him it was a result to gladden the heart and something that racing should be proud of; we shall look forward to a race being named after him at Southwell!!
