VALSEUR DU GRANVAL (FR) Declared at Warwick

We’ve had a busy morning on the gallops with syndicates Five Valleys Racing and Silkword both here to see GORSKY ISLAND and KILBREE KID (IRE).

VALSEUR DU GRANVAL (FR) has been declared at Warwick tomorrow in the 2:10 National Hunt Novices Hurdle with Sam Twiston-Davies booked to ride.

Lystra Adams

NOCHE DE REYES (FR) finished midfield at Worcester earlier today in the competitive 2 mile handicap chase. We were all rather surprised to see the owners partner Lystra Adams wearing a matching set of racing silks! Lystra was generating interest in the charity camel race due to take place at Chepstow on Wednesday which she has very bravely agreed to take part in to help raise money for Paul’s Place. Any kind donations to help her reach her target of £1k would be much appreciated.

The Thoroughbred Ladies

The Thoroughbred Ladies came to the yard earlier today to see UNTIL WINNING (FR) do some fast work on the wood chip gallop. He took a heavy fall when bidding for his fourth win over fences last season so is likely to start things off with a run over hurdles to help regain his confidence.


Busy morning schooling on the sand circle with Paddy Brennan and Jason Maguire….




NO DUFFER recently returned to Down Farm looking tremendous after spending the summer at Reg Cranks pre training yard in Tattenhall. His two wins last season resulted in a fifteen pound rise from the handicapper so one of his early season targets could well be stepping up in grade to tackle the national fences in the Betfred Becher Chase at Aintree on the 5th December.



DEXCITE (FR) has strengthened up well over the summer and is on target to make his seasonal debut at Chepstow on Saturday 10th October in the 2m Weatherbys Hamilton Hurdle Race for 4 year olds. He is pictured on the gallops this morning ridden by Craig Thompson.



KILBREE KID (IRE) has been entered at Warwick on Tuesday in the 3:40 Handicap Chase over 3m1f (0-140). He will then be readied for a Cross Country Campaign starting at Cheltenham in November.

GOD’S OWN (IRE) Seasonal Debut

GOD’S OWN (IRE) enjoyed a long summer at grass and had a small sarcoid removed from his girth area using laser surgery prior to returning to training. He is now back into the full swing of things and has a couple of options for his seasonal debut. He could bit for a repeat of last years win in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter on Tuesday 3rd November or head to Carlisle on Sunday 1st November for the 2m4f Intermediate Chase.
