Yearling sales underway
Following a great start to the month with Celsius's Glorious Goodwood win and Daring Guest's success at Wolverhampton, the team have been hitting the crossbar with another solid Listed-place second for Gypsy Spirit in Germany and runner-up efforts by the juvenile pair of Rajguru and I Had A Dream.
August also marks the start of the yearling sales season and Jackie and Tom have already visited Arqana's sale in Deauville where although they didn't make any purchases, it was great to familiarise themselves with this year's crop of first season sires in addition to getting used to looking at yearlings again.
Goffs UK will be the next port of call early next week with their premier and silver sales.
On the runners' front - Hunni tackles a 7f handicap at Newmarket this afternoon while recent Yarmouth winner Go Fox runs in a 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford tomorrow. We send both Balgair (1m handicap) and Tulloona (7f handicap) to Yarmouth on Sunday. All seem in good form and should run their races.
