     Mr Tambourine Man Winner at Exeter

It was great to keep the ball rolling with another winner for the yard thanks to Mr Tambourine Man scoring at Exeter yesterday.  Our five year old was scoring for the first time in this country having previously won a hurdle in Ireland last year.  He was returning from a mini-break after not enjoying the winter ground on his last couple of starts and he really appreciated the quicker conditions yesterday.  The further the went the better he went and he jumped well bar a little mistake at the last but galloped on powerfully to the line under Tom Scu who actually eased him down a little towards the line to score by 12 lengths.  It was great for his owners, Brian and Sue Middleton who live locally and have been very patient with him.  I am sure there is now more to come from our son of Galileo through the summer and he could also mix jumping with some runs on the flat in the coming months as well.  This was winner number 37 for the yard and our seventh win from our last 19 runners, let's just hope we can keep our good form going until the end of the season.

 There is no jumps racing today on the eve of Aintree starting but there are four meetings on the flat in this country at Catterick, Nottingham, Lingfield and Kempton plus a flat meeting in Ireland at Leopardstown.  We did not declare at Adagio to run at Aintree tomorrow, instead we are entering today for Irish Champion hurdle at Punchestown.  This means no runners for the stable at Merseyside on the opening day although we are likely to be represented in the Topham on Friday with Romain De Senam and Via Dolorosa.  We do have six runners tomorrow with three at Ffos Las and three at Taunton so check back here in the morning for more news on them. 

I see there is an article in the Racing Post today about trainers that or 'hot' or 'cold going into the Aintree Festival.  Willie Mullins and Dan Skelton head the hot trainers list while Gordon Elliott and Henry De Bromhead are on the cold list.  It seems Gordon has only had one winner from his last 25 runners while Henry De Bromhead has not had a winner since A Plus Tard won the Gold Cup!  This is the way these things go sometimes and you would be silly to rule out these two trainers from having any winners in the coming days, when you come back with a winner you usually come back with more as well, like the old saying about London buses!  

Why did the gym close down?  It just didn't work out!  Have a good day.
