Holy Kingdom – It has now been well over a year since his injury and he has been a model patient. The leg handles well and I am looking forward to starting his trotting program in November. He is such a character and a real favourite in the yard.
Crimewave – He had a nice break over the summer and is due to do his first piece of work tomorrow. He has been moving great and looks very well. We know what his optimum conditions are and he is on a mark that he is capable of going very close off. He should be ready to run in a month or so.
Eaglesglen – I thought he ran well at Kempton where he was only beaten a length in what was a competitive race for the grade. He has come out of the race well and looks as though he should be winning soon. There is a 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford (0-65) on 23 October which looks an ideal spot. He has a good record at the track.
Cash Machine – He has been gelded following his disappointing effort on Saturday. We know he is better than he has shown on his two most recent starts and he is definitely well-handicapped if the gelding operation does the trick. If he comes through the gelding operation well, we should be able to get him going again quickly and out in the not too distant future. He didn’t have much of a blow at all after his last two efforts.
Rockett Man – He is in the field at George Peckham’s. George is happy with him and said he is doing well for the break. He’ll probably have until the end of October off before we look to get him going again. I hope he strengthens for his time out as he definitely has potential off his mark .
Rogue Bear – He worked well on the grass last Friday and seems fresh and well out. The plan is to run him in a 0-80 handicap over a mile at Nottingham on 6 October. His run at Ascot suggested that he is ready for the step up to a mile and I am excited about running him.
Rogue Force – He has been back cantering for a couple of weeks since his wind operation and is moving great. He is due to do his first piece of work tomorrow and I am looking forward to getting him back on track. He is a horse I have always held in high regard and I hope we have sorted out his problems. If the wind operation has worked then he is very well handicapped. He shouldn’t have lost too much fitness and he should be ready to run towards the end of October.
Rogue Missile – She has been on the walker and in the pen here for the last three weeks. She looks really well and has put on good condition. She is due to start trotting in another three weeks.
Rogue Power – I was really pleased with his run at Lingfield and Neil was very complimentary about him. His work has always been better on the grass and off his mark of 65, I would hope he will be winning races. There is a 0-70 1m2f handicap at Yarmouth on 19 October. This looks an ideal spot and soft turf should hold no fears being by Pivotal.
Sugauli – His bloods were not 100% a couple of weeks ago and the vets have recommended that he has a few weeks trotting. I don’t think he is suited to all-weather racing and it will be touch and go whether he will come right again to run on the turf this season. It might be best to give him a break now and get him going early next spring to run as soon as the turf gets underway. I have not lost faith in this horse and think he is still well handicapped. He looks to have grown again and with another winter on his back he could be a really fun horse to look forward to.
The Guvnor – He runs tomorrow in a 2m 0-65 at Kempton. We have targeted this since his last run and he has been training well. His last piece of work was good and I would be disappointed if he is not going close tomorrow. Drawn one, I hope he can go forward and be handy away. He should stay the trip and this looks the right spot for him.
Rogue Storm – She has trained well since her promising run at Goodwood. I feel she has grown and is developing into a decent-sized filly. Whatever she does this year is a bonus as physically she will be better with another winter on her back. She is due to work later in the week with a view to running at Chelmsford in a 7f fillies restricted race on 7 October.
Rogue Bull – A huge horse who is at George Peckham’ s having spent a couple of months at grass. We should probably look to get him back into light exercise quite soon as he will need to get some education over the winter having not trained much this season.
Rogue Mission – This colt has done two pieces of work on the grass and will work again at the end of the week. If he goes the right way I hope we can get him on the track at the end of the turf season. It would be massively beneficial if we can get a run into him to help him focus. El Kabeir’s have been going well especially over further so it will be exciting to see how this horse progresses.
Rogue Star – He is a very exuberant colt and Jay has worked hard to get him to settle and do his work the right way. He has done two pieces of fast work and has gone well on both occasions. He is another one who could potentially have a run at the end of next month and will work at the end of the week.
Rogue Rocket – He has been back trotting for a couple of weeks having had six weeks in the field at George Peckham’s. He has grown a lot for his time off and looks to have strengthened well. He is a good moving horse who looks to have a good attitude. He is one who I hope can train well through the winter.
