TRAVELLER attempts the hatrick at Newcastle tonight in the 6.00pm race and is chasing his 6th win of the year. He remains in great heart.
We also send course specialist ANOTHER ANGEL on the journey North with him for the 5f sprint at 5.30pm.
Tuesday sees another course specialist PUCHITA head back to Southwell, whilst the enigmatic THAWRY takes a big step up in trip to 2 miles but contests a race lacking real strength in depth.

TRAVELLER seems to be thriving at the moment. He was always a pretty consistent horse but just missed getting his head in front for a while. He has now won 5 races this year and won well again at Newcastle yesterday. He is entered back at Newcastle on Monday.

DAAFR won well at Wolverhampton again yesterday following on from some decent recent efforts at Chelmsford. His win allowed us to beat our 2019 total of 28 and we are now on 29 and seeking number 30.
We have 3 runners at Southwell tomorrow. All of them act well on the surface which can’t be underestimated. It is a very unique place. THAWRY bolted up last week and although he has a 5lb penalty, the handicapper will put him up by 11lbs from Saturday. Hopefully he is in the same frame of mind this week.
We also run 4 times course winner PUCHITA and the inform DRAKEFELL.
TRAVELLER goes to Newcastle on Friday evening and will be ridden for us by William Buick.
KLOPP a homebred daughter of Caranbola landed the 6.00pm race at Wolverhampton tonight and became the 100th winner trained by Antony in his short career.
Her win also equalled the total for the stable for 2019. We are now on 28 wins for the year and the horses remain in great form.
Well done to all concerned
Back in action today with KLOPP & INTERNATIONAL LAW at Wolverhampton tonight.
We have 5 runners back at Wolverhampton on Tuesday as below and just the one at Newcastle, being ONE ONE SEVEN.
Our next entries will be on Thursday.
TATHMEEN goes to York on Friday for the 22 runner sprint at 3.45.
