Unfortunately this monsoon type weather is causing havoc with everyone's race plans, and it really is getting quite tedious. Millers Reef was all set to run at Market Rasen yesterday, and would have had a serious chance on nice ground, but there was no point in running when the rain hit the track. Although it is frustrating for us all, I do feel for flat trainers as we only have 7 'summer' runners, and they have far greater dilemmas, as Richard Hannon had to decide today whether to make an £11,000 supplement for Saturday's July Cup at Newmarket, and we are in for another unsettled week!
On a far more positive note - we brought 6 horses back in today as their summer holidays draw to a close, and we begin their build up for the autumn and winter. Caminero, Graduation Night, The Hungry Monk and Tom Sang came back, as well as Buxom and Miss Milborne. Caminero is going in for a wind operation on Friday, but the others will crack on with their (all important) road work.
