    Hearing Limini is out for the NH season and is likely to either run on the flat in the summer (Ebor is an option) or be retired to the breeding sheds. Been a tough couple of years for Rich Ricci with the death of Vatour, Annie Power retiring, Douvan out for an extended period and Faugheens problems as well as losing a 6 figure purchase in an acciddnt on the gallops.

    Arctic Fire has also been retired.

    Thistlecrack out for the season. Stress fracture.

    Yet again proving how hard it is to produce consistently great champions in NH racing.

    Very disappointing news, just when he was beginning to recover some form on his recent comeback trail too.

    Our horse runs again tomorrow at Lingfield.

    Odds of 40/1 are a pretty accurate reflection of the chances tbh. Longer term he needs further and 2 miles is really just about getting some racecourse experience and fitness. The aim is really just to make sure he gets round safely this time. In saying that trainer is in good form the last week or so and has had a couple of winners and a few big priced places so he isnít ruling out a decent run. Ring came out of the last race well in spite of the fall and was full of himself in the paddock the next day, heís also been schooling well so he seems happy and keen to go again.
    After another disappointing run last time out a few of the club headed to Hereford today to watch Ring go to post at 66/1 with the expectation he would run accordingly. As it turned out he didn't know he was 66s and ran a very decent race to finish 3rd and net a few of us some decent each way money. He's still a baby in his development but upped to 2m5f and with a bit experience he finally seems to be getting the hang of things, Tom O'Brien had to earn his riding fee but he kept on well to grab the place . By all accounts he got a better welcome back in than the winner of the race.

    I see the race was over 2 miles 5 PB, is that the kind of distance he'll be staying at? Looks like a stayer and might want a bit longer in time. A step in the right direction though, well done.

    Around about 3 miles is probably the right distance and where he is headed. He's also schooled over fences and looked good so that's an option as well.
