We have one runner today at Newcastle

Velvet Voice and Velvet Vision at first lot

It was another wet night but the temperature certainly didn’t drop and there is no wind. We are having a busy morning in the yard as we have a couple of people away at the races but everybody is working really well. First lot went to the Cambridge Road and the rest have stayed on the polytracks closer to home. It would be nice to get on the turf as it is all starting to open up now, but with the amount of rain we have had lately it is very much still on the soft side and the artificial surfaces are much safer at present.

Cantering up Hamilton Hill

We have one runner today. Indian Red runs in the first race at the evening meeting tonight at Newcastle. He ran well to finish third there earlier in the year and he must have another chance of performing with credit tonight. Paul Mulrennan takes the ride.

It is the first day of Cheltenham today and the ground is going to be the main factor all week. It will certainly be testing and let’s hope the jockeys and horses all come back safe and that there is no whip abuse at it always looks very unedifying, especially when the ground is heavy. Horses should be pulled up much quicker if they are out of contention in my opinion. I am sure the stewards will be giving these instructions to the jockeys and the best four days of jump racing anywhere in the world, should be a great success.

Our tipping competition starts today to a level £10 win on every race. I hope we can point you in the direction of a few winners.
