The season total is up to 62 but a fantastic run by Navajo Pass at Cheltenham yesterday to finish fourth in the Triumph Hurdle is really the icing on the cake. He is a horse we have had since a 2 year old and was bought with hurdling in mind. He is looking to have an exciting future.

Same Circus given a great ride by Theo Gillard won at Aintree on Sunday bringing the season's total to 35. Although there has been mention by the press of being on 'the cold list' it has seemed a bit unfair as we have had several horses just touched off in the past week an example of whom is another game little mare Artichoke Heart.  The horses are all running well, everyone is working hard ...
