Un De Sceaux is hard to oppose

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | January 20th, 2017

I was not all together surprised to learn on Sunday that Coneygree will now miss the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day. I sensed all might not have been well. Sara Bradstock, who rides him in all … Continued

Douvan And Djakadam Impress

Marten's Current Racing Diary | December 11th, 2016

Willie Mullins may not always be the toast of ante-post players with his late decisions on running plans and last-minute switches, but nobody knows his horses better and he usually gets it right. That looked the case today, when Douvan … Continued
