Newbury and Newmarket…

First off on this rather cold and wet day is EXCEED THE LIMIT who travelled down to Newbury this morning ahead of the 2.35 pm Handicap Stakes race over 6 furlongs.  This will be his second start of the year, with the first being at the beginning of this month on the all weather at Chelmsford where he finished in a very respectable second place.  He is ready to venture back onto the turf, lets see how he fairs with a bit of damp in the ground. Pat Dobbs gets the leg up in the silks of Mr Sultan Ali.

Onto Newmarket later on this afternoon for the last race on the card, the Hands and Heels Apprentice Handicap Stakes at 5.30 pm also over 6 furlongs, where we have ever hopeful CAPTAIN BOB who seeks his muchly anticipated first win in a while.  We would love to see him get this this afternoon on home soil and with Jonny Fisher on board for the Cool Silks Partnership.
