Lalor schooled on Wednesday and we were really happy with him. He jumped four fences and all went well, so it’s all systems go for Sandown on Saturday.

We normally give him a bit longer than three weeks between races, but he seems in good form at home and it’s a Grade One.

Obviously we were waiting a long time for the rain to arrive, but we’re now hoping Sandown doesn’t get too much more.

He’ll be absolutely fine on soft ground, we’d just be a bit worried if it turned heavy.

He’ll head off first thing with Twinkle and we’re all really looking forward to it.

It’s a Grade One so it’s not going to be easy, but if he can put up a performance like he did at Cheltenham hopefully he will go very close.

I’ve been away at the British Racing School in Newmarket all week, so Bella’s been looking after him!

I’m doing module three in the trainer’s course, so I was there for four days. Hopefully that should be it now.
