PERIPHERIQUE and NORDIC FLIGHT both run in the 10 furlong novice median auction race at Windsor tomorrow. We don't usually run two in the same race but it is a case of running where the ground is good. NORDIC FLIGHT ran two very good races at the beginning of last year but has been off the track since with an injury. He is horse we like so we have given him plenty of time to recover and he was turned out t his owners stud. We have been really pleased with him since he returned to training in January and he is a stronger mature horse and has developed a bit more speed. Although he has been off the course for a long time he could run a nice race tomorrow.
PERIPHERIQUE is a big long striding filly who should get further in time. There are lot of milers in her pedigree so we don't want to run her over too far too soon. She was very green on debut at Wolverhampton and found the track a bit tight but she has gone the right way at home since that run. Ideally we would run her on a more galloping track than Windsor but we wanted to run her on decent ground.
