In spite of Fakenham being called off today, the racing keeps coming at the moment. Yesterday saw Turban put in a decent performance to come 4th at Kempton. There was a lot of excitement in the yard when he came over from Ireland last year, and we are glad to see him progressing in the right direction after seeming to take a little time to settle in.
Tomorrow we are taking two down to Plumpton; Easter in Paris will be trying to improve on her 2nd place finish at Fontwell last time out, while Talk Of The South is returning to the course where his got his last win, back in March.
Then on Wednesday Raising Hope goes to Market Rasen. Raising was looking good on the gallops yesterday, and the progress she has made is clear to see from these two photos below; the first was taken in October when she first arrived and the second taken on the gallops yesterday. We all hope she can run to her potential.
