LORD GEORGE is leaving for France this evening prior to running in The Listed Prix du Carrousel on Sunday. There are ten runners, three of them from England. This is a step up in class for LORD GEORGE but having run so well in The Northumberland Plate we felt he was entitled to take his chance in a race like this. It is just under two miles and hopefully the ground will be good as he is such a good moving horse that soft might not be to his advantage.
Pierre who looks after him is French so they will all feel very much at home. My only worry is that he is going on the ferry as there were no places left on the train and the weather does not sound great this evening with the likelihood of some severe storms.
MAGICAL DREAMER has been given an entry in a 6f fillies handicap at Newbury next Thursday evening. She looks great, worked well with Hayley Turner on Wednesday and we will more than likely leave the hood off on Thursday.
