The finishing touches are being applied to a strong team for the 2014/15 season, the rain has arrived, the schooling grounds are in operation, and the yard is in full swing as we gear up for our first runners of the campaign....

Last season's Welsh Grand National hero Mountainous is back in training and looking great as he prepares for a repeat bid, 148-rated Grey Gold could find his way to Chepstow in a little under a fortnight or alternately line up in Exeter's prestigious Haldon Gold Cup, while Imperial Cup second Gassin Golf heads to Wetherby on Charlie Hall day for the bet365 Novices' Hurdle.

We are also delighted to have a flurry of new younger horses joining the ranks - you'll hear about them here as they progress through the season - replacing some departing familiar faces:

After stylish wins at Ludlow, Aintree, Cheltenham and Wincanton soon to be 11-year-old Hector's Choice has hung up his National Hunt boots in favour of a season or two Point-to-Pointing, while yard favourite Rifleman will enjoy a long, happy and richly deserved retirement at the conclusion of career that has yielded an extraordinary 8 wins, 14 seconds and 19 thirds - what a horse!

One stalwart who might yet enjoy at least one last hurrah is the incredible Victory Gunner, born in 1998 and the winner of an incredible 14 races to date!


Victory Gunner

He continues to amaze us, charging up the gallop with the zest, enthusiasm and energy of a horse a quarter of his age.

Last time out he was beaten a quarter of a length by a horse to whom he was conceding weight - do not rule out a 15th career success for a horse who turns 17 on January 1st.
