A great evening at Sedgefield with all the boys running to form for Steven Fox and a 3,2,1 Multipede, Leading Score and the mighty Civil Unrest remaining 100% at the track (cover pic of Cyril at Sedgefield at dusk). What fun he's brought us and The Craig Farm Syndicate now into his 9th season in training with us and still loving what he does every day. Thanks to all connections, JD Moore who sourced him for us in Ireland, Willie Cowe who did all the early work and who said this horse was his reason to get up in the mornings when he was very unwell latterly, those who kept the faith - you know who you are and that's another story! but mostly thanks to Cyril who only knows how to give.
This afternoon we head up to Ayr for the first day of the Scottish Grand National Meeting with Lycidas (pictured above yesterday with Head Lad David Macleod) who has been running well through the winter on ground on the softer side of his preferred going and Avidity (course and distance and 100% over fences 1 start 1 win) both should have good placed chances and are in good form at home. Both horses this afternoon are very kindly sponored by Leeds Plywood & Doors Ltd look out for the new sponsored clothing on course supplied by Liberty Work & Leisure in Carlisle.
