Weekend Dates Plus

Poor ol' Gandvik wasn't able to perform anywhere near his potential in Bath yesterday, but it's early days - there's time on our side, given that he has a proper trainer and an enthusiastic team behind him, as well as plenty of opportunities to run being based in England, and this first run will definitely serve him well in the future. I have every confidence that he will come good in the very near future...

We have three JRA turf runners at Tokyo-Fuchu over the weekend, with Kalliopeia out with Yutaka Yoshida on Saturday in the 1800m 5R, and two dates for Sunday - Harmony Fair in the 1600m 8R with Yuchi Tanabe, and Belle Plage looking for revenge with Yutaka Yoshida in the 2000m 9R, which is the longest distance so far for this attractive beast. In other JRA news, as things stand at the moment, Irish Harp and J'ai Un Reve are being booked to run on the 23rd.

Further afield, Raining Dollars and Pretty Gully do the business in Australia on Saturday, and Danielle's Journey should be in action on Sunday. With Louis and Sophie in dressage competition, too, it's going to be a busy weekend.
