ASK ME EARLY OUT OF THE CORAL WELSH NATIONAL
Unfortunately we have have lost the race against time to run Ask Me Early in the Coral Welsh National at Chepstow on December 27.
While it is bitterly disappointing that he misses out on such a big target I knew we faced an uphill struggle to get him there from the moment he took a horrible fall with Sean Bowen over our schooling fences on Wednesday.
It was a huge relief to see horse and rider get to their feet. But you could see immediately it was serious and it wouldn’t be fair to send Ask Me Early to Chepstow despite the best efforts of our vet & physio.
His welfare comes first and after discussions with the Dare family and Sean we are in agreement that he needs more time to recover.
