Following his fabulous win last Monday, Good Luck Charm is now rated 76 on the turf and 67 on the all weather. Gary Moore reports “he is in the form of his life” at home and “we’d be mad not to run him again this season.” Good Luck Charm’s 10th race of 2017 looks likely to be at either Epsom on 1st or Kempton 4th October.
Our next runner will be Onehelluvatouch at Plumpton on Sunday, her 3rd start over hurdles. SB.

Congratulations to trainer Marco Botti on his Grade 1 success in Canada last night with Capla Temptress! She looks to be a smart filly and once again it was a brilliant training performance.
Spring Praise has not been declared for Yarmouth on Wednesday. He is working in the right direction, but Marco feels he needs a few more pieces of work at home before racing. He’d rather have him 110% before making his debut and we couldn’t agree more. EA.

2-year old Spring Praise has his first entry at Yarmouth next week and will run based on how he works tomorrow morning.
We enjoyed a stable visit yesterday for National Hunt horses Capsis Desbois and Sisania. They have both had their work stepped up a gear and will return to the track later on this month/early October. Our National Hunt horse for the future Cilaos Glace has resumed cantering on the gallops and looks fantastic. Gary will gradually build him up at home but so far so good. SB

Congratulations to connections of the lovely Good Luck Charm as he achieved his second win of the season at Brighton yesterday! The horse broke well from his wide draw and naturally went forward into a handy position for jockey Hector Crouch. He traveled strongly and once he hit the front with 2f to go, it was encouraging to see Good Luck Charm just keep on giving! See his fabulous win here. SB
Saturday 9th September
We are busy over the next two days with National Hunt and flat runners. Onehelluvatouch and Royal Battalion will line up at Fontwell Park tomorrow (let’s hope the rain holds off!) and Good Luck Charm returns to Brighton with Hector Crouch on board on Monday. Good luck to all connections!
Our 2-year olds are starting to come together at home now and are due to undertake fast pieces of work this weekend. Hopefully he won’t be too long before we can see them in action. SB

Velvet Revolution followed up his win with a creditable 2nd place last night at Kempton. He finished a lot closer to 95-rated Cartwright on this re-match and will now enjoy a short break before returning to Marco’s to embark on an all weather winter campaign.
Good Luck Charm holds an entry at Brighton on Monday, and Onehelluvatouch has been entered in the mares hurdle race at Worcester on Tuesday. SB
Tuesday 5th September
Dragons Voice and Zambeasy didn’t disgrace themselves at Sandown Park on Saturday and both ran well despite the ground not suiting Dragons Voice and the trip being on the short side for Zambeasy. On ideal conditions next time, Philip is confident both horses will bounce back.
Recent winner Velvet Revolution reunites with Martin Harley at Kempton Park this evening. The pair made winning look very easy last time out and if the race pans out in Velvet Revolution’s favour this evening then he ought to have another good chance.
Royal Battalion & Onehelluvatouch have been entered at Fontwell Park for this Sunday. SB
Friday 1st September
Raven’s Lady finished in the prize money once again yesterday at Chelmsford, despite not enjoying the deeper surface. Overall it has been a phenomenal season and this black-type filly will now enjoy a short break before preparing for some high profile races in early 2018. We can’t wait for her 4-year old season and are so pleased all owners wish to continue with this exciting syndicate.
Our next set of runners will be stable mates Dragons Voice and Zambeasy at Sandown Park tomorrow afternoon. The track should suit both of them and we are delighted with their jockey bookings!
Velvet Revolution also holds an entry at his winning track Kempton on Tuesday. SB
