Amateur rider James Smith, who works in our yard, will have his first ride for us on Spa's Dancer at Sandown tomorrow. He knows the horse well as he rides him schooling all the time where he acts as a good lead horse for the novices. Spa's Dancer is in very good form at home and does love jumping. He does struggle to get 2 miles over hurdles but the ground should not be too testing tomorrow and he does love the track having won their three times on the flat. He will also have a low weight as James claims 7 pounds and it is a novice handicap so it is an ideal race for him. We will see how he goes but the main thing is that they both come back in one piece and enjoy themselves!
