Weekend at Chester


 Hi there

Unfortunately, we have only got two runners this weekend at Chester and I have analysed their chances below. 

Musical Valley – Friday 8th July, 8.50pm

This gelding has improved with each run and deservedly won a modest maiden in good style at Haydock last time out. Many of his owners (the MHS x 10 syndicate) will be at Chester to watch him run and we would be hopeful of a very good run.

Moody Tunes – Saturday 9th July, 2.15pm

This horse is fairly new to us and we are still learning about him. He had won his last two before arriving at Manor House Stables and is going to be aimed at Lady Amateur races for the remainder of the season. Saturday is a bit of a fact finding mission and the trip is a bit of an unknown.

One to note

We also run a 2-y-o, Menelik, at Newmarket tomorrow. We really like him here at home and so hope he runs well, albeit that he might be meeting next year’s 2000 Guineas winner – you never know with Newmarket maidens, especially at the July meeting.


Have a good weekend
