7th August 2017 

1 runner today at Salisbury.

Antagonist heads to Sailsbury for his debut. He’s from a very good family family and one we know well. His dam Melodramatic (Saddlers Wells) was trained at Beckhampton. She was a classy individual who achieved some black type. Her only runner so far has been Almodovar (Sea The Stars) who hasn’t let her down. Antagonist is a nice individual who has shown us promise. He has a future but today is his first day at school and will hopefully bring him forward. We hope he will run a race of encouragement.

 

On Saturday, it was an agonising defeat for Blakeney Point who ran a huge race to be second at Goodwood. He was ridden beautifully by Kieran Shoemark and looked the winner till only the last couple of strides. He is a real yard favourite and he can hopefully win one of these races before the end of the season.

 

Projection was luckless again with the draw not doing him any favours. Kieran Shoemark reported the ground was not to his liking at all and we’ll have to put a line through the run and try again.
