Happy New Year Everybody. Let's hope 2021 is a better , kinder year for all. Well it is very chilly in Findon at the moment and was very foggy on the gallops this morning. We were hoping for a little bit of snow, but no such luck yet !!
Tomorrow we have one runner at Sandown. Paddy's Poem runs in the 1:50 Sandown 2 JAN 2021 ITV4 1m7½f (1m7f119y) Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap Chase (Class 2) (5yo+ 0-14. Paddy is on great form, it is his first run back after some time off last season. We are hopeful of a positive run. Vova who rides him every day will be leading him up. He is a very special horse, a homebred belonging to a special owner. Good Luck all connections and team Gifford. James Davies takes the ride.
We have two runners declared for Plumpton on Sunday too . El Tornado runs in the 2 mile novice hurdle at 12.18. We are looking for a clean round of jumping and a positive run. You will see the best of him when he goes chasing !! He is a big chasing type. Then we have Itsnotwhatyouthink also running in a hurdle , which is an EBF qualifier so we are hopeful he will finish in the first four.
