We have had a quieter week with no runners this week, the horses are all in good form and working well. The cold weather has definitely hit Lambourn this week with temperatures reaching -10 on top of the gallops, it is great to not have to worry about frozen gallops with the great team who maintain them and ensure they are usable in all conditions. Some of the horses had a school over fences this morning, with the younger ones having a quieter day.
Fort Smith has entries to run on Saturday at either Aintree or Chepstow, he has been working well at home and should run well for his first outing of the season. The horses that ran last month have all come on well for their runs and shouldn't be too long before they are out on the track again.
