Unfortunately Black Truffle got balloted out of both races he was in on Monday. I’m gutted because I thought he would run well at Lingfield particularly. We will enter him at Southwell on 4th April and look for a couple of other options. He’s never run at Southwell before but I get the feeling he might like it. Horses that go well there tend to have repeat success so I hope he does like it. I think Bird For LIfe won on the 4th April last year which happens to be my birthday so hopefully I can have another birthday winner!
Bird For Life will go to Lingfield this Wednesday, 27th March. Her race is at 3:35; I presume Ellie will ride her. They went well there last time they went, to finish 4th. If she gets luck in running there’s no reason she shouldn’t run well again.
We will enter Misu Pete at Doncaster next Saturday 30th March. I have no idea how popular the race will be. If there are millions of entries he may not get a run. I’ll have a better idea of that tomorrow evening. It will be nice to have a runner on the opening day of the flat season.
