The feeling is no different at Kremlin House Stables where everybody is counting down the day’s to Doncaster’s Lincoln meeting, which takes place four weeks on Saturday.

We have been quiet on the runners front with only a handful of representatives. Tomorrow we have declared Mustajjid in a seven-furlong maiden at Wolverhampton while on Monday Double Up is a possible for a six-furlong maiden at Lingfield.

A number of horses are now in ‘full work’ and should be hitting the racetrack in late March. Farraaj in being aimed at the Winter Derby, a race he won twelve months ago.

Nothing went right for Sheikh Ahmed’s gelding after that success last year but at this stage he preparation is going well and we hope to get him to Lingfield on March 22 in top order.
