We had a couple of runners at Worcester yesterday where the ground was absolutely perfect - amazing considering it was waterlogged in mid week! Ballyboker Boy ran in the 2m4 maiden hurdle and started favorite under AP. He ran well to finish 3rd, beaten only 5 lengths and missed out on 2nd by a neck. However, he was over keen once more and just failed to see the race out. AP questioned his wind, but suggested we drop him back to 2 miles, as that way we can let him bowl along, and hopefully he'll be able to finish the race out. Undoubtedly he has an engine, and he has now been placed in 3 novice hurdles for us, but has a mark of 120, and he's not won a race yet. Sutton Who ran well in the 2 mile novice hurdle, and has progressed with each of his 3 starts over hurdles this season, and deserves a summer holiday. I'd hope he matures and strengthens over the summer, and it'd be nice to think that he'll come into his own when stepped up in trip and sent chasing.

I have recently learnt how to upload videos onto the website - so I will endeavor to upload a few over the coming weeks and months. Please do have a look at these 2 videos of Ultra Klass - we are selling 20% shares in him and there are only 4 left, so do let me know if you are keen to join our small partnership.
