Perth, a Hexham 1-2 and an impressive double century for Brian Hughes – Kinneston

Glorious weather, great for farming, not great for racing but ground at Perth seems on the soft side and having been absent there today we have 2 runners tomorrow.

Memors runs in the 1pm, she’d be better in handicap but she has had an interrupted preparation so we felt this 2 mile mares novice might be easier in the circumstances. Bruce rides and 8 run.


Ultraviolet runs in the 4:20pm, he has steadily improved on each start over hurdles and it wouldn’t take much more to see him involved in what is effectively his first handicap. Conor O’Farrell rides and 10 run.


Last week started on a high with a splendid 1-2 at Hexham, courtesy of Gipsy Lee Rose and Wavelength. It was down to earth the next day, however, when Upandatit took a heavy fall. Worryingly the screens were erected and he ended up in the excellent care of Clyde Vet for three days, but we are delighted to have him home and he is well on the way to recovery. Later on the card, Gustav’s Dream improved again to be a good third.

I was sad not to be at Perth today to witness Brian Hughes’s 200th winner crowning his magnificent season. He is a top man and has been a great help to us over the years riding plenty of good winners, we offer him our sincerest congratulations and are delighted that his exceptional work ethic and skill is now getting the widespread recognition it deserves.

This week marks the end of what has been an excellent season for the team. We will have 1 runner at Perth on Friday and 1 at our local point to point on Saturday. It is being held at Lanark this year and should be a thoroughly enjoyable day. Come along if you can!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
