Newbury, Friday 22nd March

Today we head to our local track Newbury with two runners, Huffin An A Puffin and Republican.

First up is Huffin An A Puffin in the Novices’ Hurdle at 3pm. He’s a big immature five year old who’s taken plenty of time. He will need the experience today but he’s a nice horse for the future and hopefully he gives us something to build on.

Next in the Handicap Hurdle at 5.20pm is Republican, who won well last time out on New Year’s Day. It hadn’t been the plan to give him this long off between runs but he’s not been the easiest to get right. I’m pleased with him again now, he’s very very well, done an awful lot of work and I’m looking forward to running him.
