Weekend Trio

The three runners mentioned in the first paragraph of the 'Building Up' piece issued yesterday have all been confirmed to race at the weekend. In theory, all three are actually in with a chance of winning - Tenshinramman is (or at least was) a superstar; Single Cask has already got one in the bag, and Irish Harp has been incredibly unlucky not to win so far.

In other Carrot Club news, a decision will be made on the next step for Belle Plage in a couple of weeks, and Time For Love is now at the Nakagawa Stable at Miho TC. Apparently she has a bit of a throat problem, which doesn't sound too promising, while Perfumer is hyper, which sounds a lot like 'Bugatti' was in the paddock this morning!

Meanwhile, I'm tempted by another horse with Jo Hassett in Australia, the deal only really being questioned by a serious cash outlay securing 'Bugatti' and getting Louis entered in the All-Japan Championships. I've also still got this jumper thing in my mind - the jumping game seems to be disappearing in Oz, as a friendly stable Down Under tells me I'm the only one interested in getting hold of a hurdler at the moment. Another friendly stable in Ireland looks good, but 25% is a big risk on something new to me, while a different one hasn't bothered to get back to me. Same story with Nick Gifford - it's surprising how many stables can afford to throw away the chance of doing some business...
