We have taken the decision to retire Ms Parfois following a tendon injury to her near fore. It is the latest blow for the yard during a frustrating season, when a combination of the virus and unseasonably quick ground over the winter have restricted opportunities for our horses. A fortnight ago we had such high hopes that Ms Parfois would run a big race in the Grand National at Aintree, followin...

We enjoyed our best day of the season so far on Saturday with Ms Parfois a gallant second in the valuable Midlands Grand National and Duhallow Gesture and Shapiro both successful at Fontwell. It is great to have the team back in form again after a mid winter shutdown when they were off colour with a virus. Acey Milan was another to run well on Saturday when third in the £50,000 Marston&rsq...

Urca De Lima dug deep to beat her sole rival Little Rich in the staying novice hurdle at Fontwell on Wednesday. An hour later Lily The Pink looked like providing us with a double in the bumper but was just edged out of it by Eglantier after running green in front. On a day when many trainers and jockeys boycotted the meeting in protest at poor prize money at racecourses run by ARC I chose not to...

It was good to see Acey Milan break his duck over hurdles at Plumpton on Wednesday as racing resumed after a frustrating six day shutdown. Victory didn’t look that likely on the final bend where he was headed after making much of the running in the opening novice hurdle. Two miles round a sharp track was never going to be ideal for a horse that stays so well but Acey Milan showed a very wi...

The victory of Duhallow Gesture in the Mares Novice Hurdle at Taunton on Monday under Aidan Coleman was a big boost for the yard after a tricky couple of months while the horses have been on the easy list. It feels great to be back on track. We can hopefully start to make up for lost time with plenty of interesting runners in the next week or so now that the cold snap is over. Duhallow Gesture i...

Mistress Massini doubled her score for January with a fluent victory in a staying novice handicap Chase at Catterick on Thursday. As she escaped a penalty for her comfortable success at Ludlow seven days earlier she was again able to run off a lowly handicap mark of 89. We sent Mistress Massini to Catterick on Wednesday and she enjoyed a canter round the course in the morning before putting her ...

The success of Mistress Massini in a staying Handicap Chase at Ludlow on Thursday was a nice little bonus at a time when our core team are still on the easy list after suffering from a mild virus. Having been busy in point-to-points for my sister Teresa Clark until June she came into training at the start of December and has been the only one in full work over the past month. Mistress Massini had ...

Today Newbury Racecourse generously put on the Ladbrokes Winter Carnival Gallops morning in front of the media, and Anthony travelled up with  Ms Parfois, and Regal Encore.

A double at Ffos Las on Sunday was further confirmation that our team is in top form with underfoot conditions finally in our favour. We’ve had to be patient waiting for the rain to come and we are kicking on now with Le Coeur Net landing the Class 4 two mile chase by eighteen lengths before Jepeck completed the double on his debut for us by making just about all the running in the three mi...

It was good to see Sojourn repay the patience of his owners with a ready success in the bumper at Aintree on Saturday on his second start. A lovely, big, scopey type who will make a chaser, he has needed time to mature and strengthen since he first came into training. He showed bags of promise on his debut at Newbury almost exactly a year ago when he finished fourth of sixteen and he should have ...
