We signed off for what will hopefully be as quick a time as possible, with all three of our runners at Wetherby on Tuesday suggesting they will win races when given the chance again.

Kisumu ran one of his better races, appearing to run all the way to the line, only succumbing by three parts of a length to the Diane Sayer trained Oceanus. It was even more commendable as he was given no peace up front by the mare Vicky Cristina who gave him a contested lead.

In the handicap hurdle Lucou ran his best race yet when finishing a respectable sixth beaten only four and a quarter lengths. He got outpaced three out, but was staying on again towards the finish. Considering he ran from six pounds out of the handicap, and is sure to get dropped at least another couple, he should be even more competitive next time.

Our third and final runner was The Very Thing in the, he also finished second, at a massive 28-1. He has come down fifteen pounds from his peak of 112 a year ago, and even if the handicapper sees fit to raise him a little, he will still be eligible for a 0-100 next time.

The horses will go about their usual routine, and as soon as we can race again, they will be primed to bring us some wonderful moments on the racecourse.
