Sadly I won't be able to watch the tapes fly up for the opening race at the Festival as we have a busy day with two runners at two different meetings.
Limerick Lord has been a bit disappointing since winning late last year but he drops into claiming company this time at Southwell and I hope he can find a bit of form again at a track he has won at before.

Veeraya is another who is hard to predict but he too could go well at Wolverhampton the same day. He has dropped down to a good handicap mark now and the seven furlong trip looks well within his compass.

Moment To Dream went very nicely, so much so that I gave her a preliminary entry at Lingfield on Friday. I doubt she will run but there weren't many entries and it could be a good starting point if looking like a weak contest.

Sabre Rock continues to steamroll through his comeback and he stepped it up another notch this week when striding out alongside Handheld over seven furlongs. Due to his history of leg trouble, we are in no rush to get Sabre back but he still seems to have all his old ability, if not more. Mark, who rides him everyday, does a great job to keep him safe and hopefully his hard work can be rewarded when Sabre returns to the track.
Handheld is another with lots of ability and I hope to have him ready for the Lincoln meeting at Doncaster next month. He loves soft ground so early season would be his time to strike, you would think.
