Weekend review 

The horses have been running brilliantly and it was great to hit 150 winners at Cheltenham last weekend.

Gowel Road won his race nicely and will continue to be targeted at all the big handicaps throughout the season, while I Like To Move It continues to delight us.

The race he won on Sunday may not have been the strongest, so it’s hard to know quite how good a performance that was, but he’s done nothing wrong and can only beat what’s put in front of him.

We think he’s very good, and he seems to have a lot of speed, so we’ll keep him at two miles for now.

Ballymillsy is one who maybe didn’t run so well, but he wasn’t suited by the faster ground so we think he can be forgiven. The softer the better for him, I think.

There are plenty of horses in the yard that are yet to run and waiting for the rain to come.

Bristol De Mai – Betfair Chase

Onto the big one this Saturday and we really couldn’t be any happier with Bristol De Mai ahead of his run in the Betfair Chase (3.00pm) at Haydock.

He’s had the perfect preparation, is in great nick and the only difference this year is the race looks a bit hotter than usual.

He’s been able to dominate smaller fields in this race in the past, but it’s a bigger, more competitive field this time around.

I wouldn’t worry about the drying ground as he’s won round there before on better ground, and I think he’s pretty versatile.

Fingers crossed for a good performance and then hopefully onto the Cotswolds Chase, and then who knows, possibly another crack at the Gold Cup.
