He looks in great shape and he’s been training with his usual enthusiasm. He is off a career high mark however he does seem a late maturing sort and who knows where he could take us too, he’s surprised us before! He takes his chance at Chester tomorrow and the tight turning track I hope should suit him. He’s run on good to soft ground once previously at Nottingham were he ran a nice race off 77 over a mile. He’s a lovely horse, such a character and I hope he enjoys his trip up to the Rodee tomorrow.
This horse looks in great shape and worked well last Saturday. He is moving well and I am happy with him. He is entered at Ascot over 6 furlongs and Haydock over 7 this Saturday. Ideally we would run at Ascot as he has plenty of speed in his pedigree and has shown us speed at home this spring. I’d hope the stiff six would suit him well and the ground looks like being good to soft which should be ideal. A concern is that he needs 6 to come out to get a run. Being an Ascot handicap on a Saturday it’s competitive (as you would expect) however we have a lovely low weight (especially with Laura’s claim) and I very much hope he is capable of winning a race off his mark. Fingers crossed we get a run.
A hugely disappointing day on Monday. Ciren felt the horse got unbalanced, the horse has been very well balanced at home. Jack has ridden him on the watered gallop (which is very undulating) and he worked really well on it. I agree with your voice note analysis of the race. The horse has come out of the race well and moved nicely when out for a trot this morning. Hopefully we can get him back out soon and giving the judge some trouble.
This horse looks terrific and his gelding operation has completely healed up. He is training nicely and we’ll think about a piece of work for him in the next couple of weeks. Gelding could eak out improvement in this horse and I’m very pleased we have had him cut as he really does look well in himself. As long as he works nicely we should have him back on the track in around 3 weeks time. As I have previously said, I love this horse and feel he has a lot to give the Rogues.
Rockett worked nicely on Saturday under Laura, he sat second of 3 and settled really well before picking up nicely. Although he has shown us plenty of speed on the track so far the way he is now relaxing makes you think at some point we could consider six furlongs for him. He has shot up over his break and must have grown a good couple of inches, he still has filling out to do but i’d hope this will happen throughout the year and he will improve as the year goes on. He’s on target to run at Goodwood on 21st May.
He looks great and now weighs 511kg! I’m really pleased with how this horse is training, he is a big horse who needs a little time between his runs. I expect him to have really sharpened up for his win at Chelmsford and would hope he will travel stronger next time. I’m really looking forward to seeing him on the turf, I’m not sure how much he will want quick ground but a little give under foot could really suit him. He’s another sprinter who I hope will improve as he matures. A possible option for him is At Windsor 24th May 6 furlongs.
The Bear seems in great nick and has come out of his win well. He has trained nicely at home and doesn’t seem too fussed about his racecourse debut. He is clearly a talented horse who I hope will be running in nice races one day. For now though, Novice company is right for him and hopefully another run at this level will really help bring him on and help him learn about the game. All being well there is a Novice at Doncaster on 15th May, this fits well and should be a nice spot for him as long as the ground isn’t too quick. I feel six is fine for him at this stage but I would hope he may get further as he took an awful lot of pulling up from Jack at Doncaster! He looks great and is maintaining his racing weight.
He continues to do well in his recovery. He’s a great patient and still it’s very much a case of so far so good. I had the vet check his leg last week and they were very happy with the progress he is making. He still looks really well and it’s exciting to start to see a little light at the end of the tunnel.
He is a big horse who needs a little time between runs. He ran really well at Kempton and will hopefully go close next time, the second horse that day (Sun Festival) got a mark of 78, who we were three quarters of a length behind. He worked nicely last weekend over 7 furlongs on the Alba and he looks to be strengthening all the time. There is a Novice Median Auction novice back at Kempton on May 19th. I hope this will be a nice spot for him.
We were hoping for a win at Wetherby and it was frustrating he was beaten just over a length. For me, there were loads of positives to take out of the race, he was still green- being his first run on the turf and I know Laura would ride the race differently if she could have her time again. He’s come out of the race well and is only going to improve as he gets older and strengthens. I hope he will go very close next time in a similar contest and I envisage that he will stay very well as he matures. I still feel there’s races in this horse as he is going to improve physically throughout the year.
This horse is really going the right way now and is nearing a run. He looks fantastic in his coat and has done some nice work. He is a late maturing sort but with his pedigree I’m hoping he will have plenty to offer us. He loves getting his toe in and enjoys training on the turf. I’ll do stalls work with him soon and if he works well in his next couple of pieces we’ll get him on the track.
A filly who continues to work very well at home showing speed, as I have previously said she has a big heart and a lovely attitude. She has been good in the stalls and did a nice piece of work under Jack on the watered gallop last week. She’ll work again at the end of the week and if works well, is nearly ready to run. Options for her are:
Yarmouth 19th May Median Auction 6 furlongs
Wolverhampton 26th May fillies Novice 6 furlongs
He has been quite enthusiastic in his work and we have worked hard to get him to settle. I have been really happy with how he has trained over the last couple of weeks and he looks to be really coming to himself. He is a horse with loads of talent and hopefully he can learn to channel it the right way. There is a race at Haydock over a mile on 21 St May which could be a good spot for him to start.
A strong, handsome colt who breezed exceptionally well and is an exciting addition to the team. He has cantered for the last week and we’ll give him a couple more weeks to settle in before doing any more with him. He is eligible for the Craven 15K bonus which I think is a great incentive.
He came in on Tuesday having been broken in at George Peckham’s. It’s early days but he’s a lovely strong horse with a serious pedigree. A real 3yo type, we’ll take our time with him. When I watched him trot this morning I was taken aback by how light on his feet he is for a big horse and very well balanced too. I’m looking forward to seeing Him progress.
A really racy colt by an exciting young sire. We have given him a little down time since the sale and he has settled in well. He is bred to go well at two and is another lovely sort to have.
I loved this colt and was delighted to get him. His sire was seriously quick for a Sea The Stars and this horse looks like his sire by all accounts. He has settled in well and is enjoying a few easy days.
There is a lovely variety with the 2yos we bought – I would hope that Rogue Mission and Rogue Rockett would be running this summer while Rogue Star will hopefully be on the track towards the autumn. We knew Rogue Bull would be a long term prospect but with his pedigree anything is possible.
