Sorry to say that First Verse and Willingly
were both eliminated at Kempton Friday evening; to say we are
disappointed that Willingly was eliminated from the Novice Stake as well
as the Handicap would be true.
There is no flat racing in the UK after
Lingfield's meeting on Saturday afternoon for the followng seven days;
the rationale being that it is an opportunity whereby flat jockeys can
have a clean break without missing decent rides; we do have Bird for
Life and Blue Galaxy entered in Lingfield's staying handicap this
Saturday; Bird for Life is very likely to run and we shall have to keep
an eye on the ballot for Blue Galaxy, who will run over further than
twelve furlongs for the first time if he foes get in..
