Becky the Thatcher Ripon Thursday 2nd June `16

First of all, apologies for the delay in updating the site.

My trusty computer, according to my expert technical man, suffered a major hard drive problem, and as a result many files that I hadn`t backed up went into cyber space, never to be seen again.

Anyway we`re back in action, but unfortunately not to report success for our 3yo filly Becky the Thatcher.

I accept its early days yet for her, but I must confess to being disappointed with her performance.

No excuses were on offer to connections after the race other than our jockey, riding to instructions, commented he thought he maybe should have kicked for home earlier, instead of holding on to her until the final three furlong dash.

Becky wasn`t beaten far, and she came out of the race fine, so all that can be done is to wait and see how the handicapper rated her performance, and move on to race 3 of her season.

No excuses from me either.

Its a case of the jury`s out… and Micky Hammond has the job of proving to us guys, what I know he sincerely believes to be true, that Becky is well capable of winning races off her current mark…AND BEYOND.

So we`ll just let him get on with his job.
