    In the second division of the novice hurdle at Chepstow I thought RESERVE TANK had a nice introduction, looked the part, settled at the back, smooth progress on the inside as they turned into the straight to get competitive, kept on nicely for third place.
    Ah! but a man's reach should exceed his grasp......

    Hobbs' Dostal Phil is out tomorrow. He was highly regarded last season, but flopped on debut, albeit with the yard under a cloud and didn't reappear.

    Hobbs said this in his ATR stable tour

    "He will want two and a half miles and he will in a month or so in a novice hurdle."

    Racing over 1m 7f tomorrow (4.30 Uttoxeter).

    Nice first run over hurdles just now for Seddon at Stratford. Had to win getting weight from the Skelton nag, but still did it in nice style and will hopefully settle a little better next time

    The other UK novice to impress so far is Pym. He's a bit obvious winning the same Chepstow race as Altior, in the same colours, but liked the way he did it and he's going to be a much better hurdler than bumper horse. The 2nd (Deyrann de Carjac) also traveled nicely and is a banker for a maiden hurdle

    I'd say they were never going quick enough for Seddon. Nice start for him.

    Noel Meade has introduced 2 good novices yesterday and today.

    Hopefully he keeps them sound and they have good careers. Mrs Hunt is a good buyer of horses.

    Called a 'slight mistake' in the RP.

    She still won a listed race by 11 lengths eased down and has only gone up 2lb to 135. Maybe we should qualify her for the Pertemps.
    The older I get the better I was.

    Did anyone see the 1.15 Newbury today? It looks like it was a decent contest perhaps not ran at a great pace. The winner Ecu De La Noverie (BSP 70.0 ISP 33/1) traveled really well and battled back to get up on the line when headed by Mister Fisher. I could see at least 4 horses in behind winning races before the end of the year. Does David Maxwell hold on to good horses or does he sell them on?

    Agreed and think Maxwell holds on to them, but not sure he's had one as promising as this. Mr Fisher is a certainty for a novice and would be particularly interested in Baddesley Knight, as he pulled quiet hard early and may be underrated because of his trainer, which is a mistake

    Garrettstown will be winning too when stepped up on trip or off a faster pace.

    The supreme horse looked to be cruising today at Navan. Fairyhouse next for him
