You can lead a horse to water ?

Well you can't say I didnt tell you that John Balding was going to hit a purple patch when he had that first winner last year, and boy hasnt he done it in "Style" with 9 wins from 25 runners on the AW since the start of the AW season plus a number of placed efforts too. The latest of those wins came courtesy of 8yo Garstang who I mentioned was a horse to follow after his promising run last time out. He has now won 5 times at Lingfield although this was his first over the minimum trip and whose to say after his wind operations that he can't win again especially when he gets back onto turf. Not to be outdone the stables only runner today Errigal Lad was 3rd at odds of 20/1, long may it continue !

I have not posted much of late simply because Ive had the blasted flu and Ive been trying to shake it off, I'm happy to say its now nearly all clear.

I will be shortly compiling a list of several sprinters to follow over the coming flat season, this will be on a stand alone page so do keep a lookout.
