THE TIN MAN gave his syndicate members some exciting moments on his return to the racecourse after seven months. Everyone knew that he would need the race as he isn’t the most flamboyant of workers at home but just for a couple of seconds he gave us reason to shout. Unfortunately he got very tired and the 5lbs he was giving everyone took its toll. We were all very proud of him and hoping that we do not have any set backs int he next month in which case he will head to The Diamond Jubilee at royal Ascot.
He looked very pleased with himself this morning which was a very different face to the one we saw when he was being saddled up yesterday. he looked extremely unimpressed with the very damp conditions he was going to have to race in.
Our next runner is PTARMIGAN RIDGE on Saturday at Doncaster. He had lots of little niggles last year which was a shame as we would love to have given him a run. Anyway he is belatedly getting on the track on Saturday. He is likely to be very green as he is away with the fairies most of the time but is usually there abouts at the end of a gallop.
MAGICAL DREAMER is going out in a hood at the moment and she seems so much calmer and will wear one in her next race which is likely to be a 6f Fillies handicap at Leicester on May 30th.
