10 November

Posted on November 10, 2011

A rainy afternoon at Bangor yesterday with FAIRVIEW SUE and MISTER WYCHWOOD.
There is no getting away from the fact that FAIRVIEW SUE was disappointing. She seemed to travel OK, although she missed a few of her hurdles, but then there was simply nothing there when she was asked for her effort turning for home. Although she seemed flat immediately after the race, she bounced off the lorry when we got home, ate up and seems perky enough. We’ll see how she is in a couple of days, and if she doesn’t seem herself, get some tests done.
MISTER WYCHWOOD was much more encouraging, although he was always going to have a tough task living up to WYCHWOOD MIST and WYCHWOOD DANCER’s debuts earlier this year ! He finished mid-division, having run very, very green. While I suspect he’ll definitely come on for the race mentally and physically, I’d be inclined to look for better ground and a flatter, easier track next time out, as he struggled to balance himself at times on the undulations.
