No getting away from the fact that Bird for
Life did not run particularly great at Lingfield on Saturday and her
normal finish was pretty much not in evidence; it would also be true to
say that she is probably nearer the end of her career on the track than
the beginning; she has won for us seven times and been placed in 18
over five seasons, a w&p strike rate of better than 40% from her 62
starts; a terrific servant to the Yard and to our Racing Club.
As I touched on last week there is no aw flat racing during this week until next Saturday (the rationale being to give the AW Jockeys the chance of a clear breaking without missing any significant rides); Lingfield race on the polytrack next Saturday afternoon and Wolverhampton on their tapeta in the evening; we don't have any entries at either meeting but we are looking to be back in action the following week.
