The pleasantly warm and sunny morning was swept aside by 2pm as the heavens opened to water the 'good to firm' Yorkshire soil.

Good to firm was the official going at Catterick yesterday, though jockeys described the ground as good/easy side of good. Two horses made the short journey from Sun Hill to the course, the first of which was 2-y-o filly, Lady Nectar, who had made a pleasing debut at Pontefract in mid-August. Hopeful that she would show herself well, we were delighted to see her continue on in the right direction, running well to once again claim third place. She's shaping up nicely and should have a few days in the sun ahead of her. Cuppacoco did not run with such conviction this time, though she has secured a win and a couple of placed efforts this season and remains a firm favourite in the yard as one of the sweetest characters. 

On the topic of yard favourites, Chant, has been declared for Newcastle on Friday over his preferred trip of 1m4f. A previous course and distance winner, he's had a quiet campaign as is the norm for him, and now heading toward his 'twilight years' it would be fantastic to see him win once again for his owner, Mrs Starkie, who absolutely adores him.
