Kenilworth  -  22 February 2014
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  I hope he can regain some of his old form. His work is good but he has been disappointing of late.

 Post Race :  He ran on towards the end of the race but we know he is capable of better.

 Kenilworth  -  01 February 2014
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  It will be tough for him with the conditions of the race. However, he is exceptionally well so let's hope for a good effort.

 Post Race :  He was out at the weights but is struggling to regain his good form. Possibly a couple of weeks holiday in the paddock will do him the world of good.

 Kenilworth  -  11 January 2014
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is well and the further they go, the more he likes it. It is a competitive race and I don't think he can win it but is more than capable of running a place.

 Post Race :  I was happy with the way he ran. He is still too high in the handicap.

 Kenilworth  -  21 December 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is in very good form at home but stays all day and tends to only get going when the race is almost over.

 Post Race :  This was not a bad run considering his handicap.

 Kenilworth  -  23 November 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is very well and we know he stays the distance. The only drawback is that he has a big weight to carry over this maximum trip. However, I still think he will run well.

 Post Race :  A good effort. He needs a good pace and a long finishing straight for things to go his way. There was no pace on in the race which was definitely not in his favour.

 Kenilworth  -  26 October 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  I would have liked to have got another run into him before this race but he is very well. I think he will go close.

 Post Race :  He ran much the sort of race I expected. He has never been a horse to enjoy the short run in.

 Kenilworth  -  10 August 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He has the top weight but has a good draw and this is the right distance for him. Probably the only thing not in his favour is the short run in on the old course but he is very well and we are expecting him to run a good race.

 Post Race :  He ran an absolute cracker with an awful amount of weight on his back. He is just looking for a little further.

 Kenilworth  -  27 July 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  It is probably a bit on the sharp side but he loves the soft ground and is doing very well.


 Fairview  -  21 June 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is working well. I am a little worried that the 3600m’s might be too far for him but we never know until we try.

 Post Race :  I was extremely pleased and it was great to finally win a race like this with him. He has always been a horse which deserved some black type.

 Kenilworth  -  05 May 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He really appears to have turned the corner. Anton is not keen on this horse and they do not appear to like each other much which is why Glen is riding him. He is doing exceptionally well and I would like to think, despite not dropping a pound in 3 unplaced runs, he will still run fairly well.

 Post Race :  A very good run but he is just too high in the handicap. Will have to write to the handicapper - again.

 Kenilworth  -  13 April 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  I thought the penalty he received last time was ridiculously unfair and he could well be just too highly rated. We shall see.

 Post Race :  He was racing wide the whole way which did not help him at all and put paid to any chance he might have had. It was a distance short of his best and I think this run is best ignored.

 Kenilworth  -  23 February 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  Going very well and his coat is good. We shall see whether the 6 pound penalty makes a big difference to him. I think this is the trip he has been looking for and Glen fancies his chances. It just depends how strong the top weights are.

 Post Race :  A little bit disappointing. He received a penalty for his good run in the Reserve Stayers and the extra weight might have made the difference over the 3200m.

 Kenilworth  -  02 February 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  Ran a great race over 2000M last time out. Unfortunately not very well weighted here but he is doing very, very well and should enjoy this 2800.

 Post Race :  He ran a smashing race. I felt he looked the best I have ever seen him. If he carries on like this, he will make into a decent stayer

 Kenilworth  -  08 December 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  It is not ideal running him so close to his big effort of 2 weeks ago but these races are few and far between. This horse has turned the corner and is starting to really look well.

 Post Race :  As with Badger Lake, I was probably being a bit greedy running him so close to his last good effort.

 Kenilworth  -  24 November 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 7  3200M Durbanville Cup (Listed)  Glen Hatt  16h20

 Pre Race   :  He is going beyond the 2400m for the first time and obviously the biggest question is will he get the trip

 Post Race :  The line came too soon for him. He ran a lovely race and finished strongly in a competitive field. I was very impressed with him.

 Kenilworth  -  04 November 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 8  1800m MR94 Divided Handicap  Anton Marcus  16h10

 Pre Race   :  He doesn't have the best of draws but has Anton in the irons. Am expecting a good run.

 Post Race :  Obviously something amiss on Sunday and we are having him checked over. Hopefully nothing serious

 Durbanville  -  20 October 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is just having a run back but is doing really well and could surprise us with a really good effort. I love the way he is looking and once he has this first race back into him, we can ease off and work out a program for him.

 Post Race :  I was very pleased with this effort. There is plenty of improvement in him and he will come on from here.

 Kenilworth  -  23 June 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 8  2400m  Glen Hatt  16h20

 Pre Race   :  He is very well and has a strong chance.

 Post Race :  He ran a cracking race from the back of field. He was caught up on the fence and the winner got away at the top of the straight. He was making up the ground but the winner was just too good on the day.

 Arlington  -  13 May 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He has quite a bit to do with his rating and his draw. I think they are going to go a good pace and we will sit off them and pick them off in the home straight.

 Post Race :  I was very pleased with him. The pace and the fact that he found traffic didn’t help him at all. I feel he should probably have run 2nd with a bit more luck.

 Kenilworth  -  21 April 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 8  2000m  Glen Hatt  17h10

 Pre Race   :  He would have preferred further but this is his last prep before possibly going to PE for the Derby. He needs to have a good showing here to make the journey worthwhile.

 Post Race :  a very impressive win coming from off them. He just keeps getting better and better.

 Kenilworth  -  28 March 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 7  2000m  Glen Hatt  16h40

 Pre Race   :  He is physically improving every day. I love the way he is maturing. The only question will be whether the 2000m will be a little bit short for him. Let’s hope there is a good pace on.

 Post Race :  Ran a great race, especially for a 3 year old.   He was running on the whole way. They got away from him at the top of the straight but he was catching them all the way to the line.
