Paul Cole Blog Update: ''The Fines Are Comparable To Being Hanged For Sheep Stealing''

Silverheels has been entered in the Horris Hill but is likely to run in the Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte on the 1st November. We have several maidens at Newbury, none expected to win. Humungosaur who ran a little disappointingly at Pontefract may run at Brighton, partly to try and win a racing post bonus race. Gifted Girl and Swingland are both fit and well, the Newmarket Listed fillies race on 29th October is their target. Rimth, after her reasonable run in the Challenge Stakes has gone to stud. Circumvent who's optimum trip is 1m1f, runs in the class 2 handicap at Newbury on Saturday 22nd October. He has a good draw at Kempton on Wednesday and with luck in running should run well.

Mons Calpe is unpredictable but wins one or two most years, he likes Kempton so we will run there again. Moynahan is fit and well but is hard to win with.

It is out with the old and in with the new time!

We bought ten yearlings last week they were good value for the money. The Maktooms distort the market, if they are not on the horse some value can be had, we spent from £10,000 to £150,000.

The whip has been an awful own goal, can you imagine the jockeys looking over their shoulders in a twenty horse race to see where the furlong pole is. The fines are comparable to being hanged for sheep stealing, lets hope sense prevails. More horsemen are needed at the top.

On the social front, I have been told to say that there are also some very attractive widows in the East Garston area as well as the divorcees. In a development from the Racing Post Dikler, Adrian Clegg has been seen walking his dog in East Garston recently.

I also gather there has been a supper convened to put to use some of their talents and expertise (maybe a hockey team or something like that).
