A blissfully quite time here at Grange Hill Farm with no runners again this weekend, though I did have a couple of winners at Ffos Las last night, I hope you noticed?
At least that gives me the chance to properly celebrate the Royal Ascot victory of Primitivo in the King George V Stakes on Thursday afternoon, trained by fellow National Hunt trainer Alan King and ridden by my son Willie – I honestly couldn’t be a more proud father right now, and the win is still sinking in!
As for my horses, as I said nothing this weekend but I am planning to run Novemberstorm at Worcester next Wednesday in a bumper, and although the field is obviously an unknown at this stage, he did finish a good second in his first National Hunt Flat race, and I would be hopeful he has a good chance of going one better here.
