I probably frustrated a few people with Dakota after saying I was going to run him over a longer trip but then reverted back to his usual distance. This was only because there were no suitable races for him over two miles and luckily he showed his well being by winning over his usual distance. I am still keen to try him over further but it needs to be at the right time.

On Tuesday at Southwell we have a trio of raiders, starting with Candesta. He finally got his head in front at Kempton a few weeks back and has been training well since. He seems to go best when a bit fresh so the short break isn't a worry and he has shown form at the course before. After waiting so long for his first success, it's hard to be confident but he should be competitive.
Star Of The Stage is unproven at the course but I think it is somewhere he will handle. He is coming back down to a grade where he can win at and, although it is a competitive race, he could be in the shake-up.

Serendib's Glory has been going great guns lately and her debut run late last year really brought her on and she will be ready to visit the track again soon. Her owner's other horse, Veeraya, is making his way back to full fitness after a break and he too is in good order. He is well handicapped now so I hope we can nick a race with him before the all-weather season comes to an end.
