Pepperello (right) now has a competitive handicap mark. Hopefully we can run him next time over 2 miles on his preferred soft ground. If he doesn't run to expectations his owner has plans to send him eventing in the spring and he would be worth getting involved with in either sphere if you know anyone interested.
Shannonside has done several pieces of work and has started to pop a few logs. As a 3 year old she will appreciate regular breaks to grow and think about what she has learnt. If all goes well we hope to run her in the new year.
We have a very exciting new horse in the yard. Vote of Confidence (USA) was bought at Ascot sales by my partner Patrick Barcoe and my mother Bronwen. He is a fine stamp of a horse with the form in the book. We are looking forward to sending him chasing but will try him first over hurdles whilst he is in good heart over the smaller obstacles. He will run for the Laura Hurley Club and there are still shares available.
