The rain probably arrived in the Royal Borough just too soon for Bayston Hill yesterday; he was pushed along just after halfway on the eased ground but showed what a genuine person he is by keeping on throughout the last third of the race to be beaten not so far. The way to look at yesterday evening’s race is that he will probably be eased to the level of his win at Bath and be highly competitive if we can find a robust surface on perhaps a stiffer track.
A busy day in prospect tomorrow with three of the four Club horses running; Black Truffle and Born to Please, who will seek to exploit running off the same mark as at Sandown, at Brighton with Nicola Currie and Misu Pete under Oisin Murphy at Kempton. As I have touched on previously the Racing Club represents the opportunity to go racing with competitive horses (and real value for money at £50 per month!!).
