Quiet week ahead – however Jallota’s back

We won’t have any runners before the weekend, so it’s going to be quiet on the racing front.

Horses are still coming in from their winter breaks, and one we’re all looking forward to seeing is Jallota who returns today. He’s a real yard favourite and a great character to have about the place, although Johda’s probably not looking forward to trying to stay on him very much! It’s the first time he’s ever had a holiday as he’s been in Dubai during the winter over the last three years. He really deserved his break after the season he had last year and we’re hoping he can emulate it this year, although we were sad to see the Group 1 he was second in has been downgraded to a Group 2. That race was going to be the ultimate aim this year, however we may re-think plans as the season progresses.
