Weekend Racing…

ENCOR D’OR left the yard first thing this morning heading over the channel to France for the Listed 5 furlong Prix Du Cercle at Deauville on Saturday at 3.30pm local time.   Its a relatively small field of eight as it stands. He is a gutsy performer and we are hopeful he should put in a good show.   Mickaël Barzalona rides for Mrs Morley, Mr Johnson and Newsells Park Stud.

Two runners today heading to Ascot ahead of racing today.  First off is EXCEED THE LIMIT who runs at 4.25 pm in the 5 furlong Handicap Stakes.  It would be great to see him get his first victory on UK soil fingers crossed today he will make that happen. Martin Dwyer is on board for Mr Sultan Ali.  Onto the 4.55 pm Fillies Handicap Stakes is COSMOPOLITAN GIRL who has enjoyed two victories and two places out of only five starts for us, we will hope that she copes with the slightly softer ground today.  Fran Berry gets the leg up for Saleh Al Homaizi & Imad Al Sagar.

Lastly BOBBYS CHARM who heads to Lingfield Park for the Novice Stakes race at 7pm. This will be only his second start after his debut at Newbury at the beginning of July.  He is a strong good looking chap and we are confident he should have improved for his first run. Louis Steward rides for The Cool Silks Partnership.
