David Young­man with the lat­est from head­quar­ters

IT is won­der­ful see­ing the Frankel prog­eny per­form­ing so well. ALJEZEERA, trained by Luca Cu­mani, was the lat­est to win on de­but. This filly is out of Dy­naforce and had been im­press­ing us work watch­ers on the Limekilns. She still has a lot of fur­nish­ing and de­vel­op­ing to do but will con­tinue to progress and should be a very nice prospect for the Bed­ford House han­dler for next sea­son.

An­other Cu­mani-trained filly tak­ing the eye is an un­raced daugh­ter of Nathaniel named GOD GIVEN owned by St Al­bans Blood­stock.She will be pa­tiently han­dled but has shown us in her work that she is very tal­ented.

Sir Michael Stoute has in the as-yet un­raced MORI a lovely Frankel filly owned by Khalid Ab­dul­lah. She has been work­ing nicely and Sir Michael says he will be look­ing to give her a first race in a New­bury maiden later in the au­tumn.

I hope you like the photo of me with her that was taken re­cently when I was at the Freema­son Lodge yard. Good­wood win­ner ULYSSES was given a nice break af­ter win­ning the Gor­don Stakes at that meet­ing but is be­ing eased back into work again and pro­vided it stays firm he will have an­other run this year.Sir Michael is pleased with MIDTERM now he is work­ing again af­ter in­jury.

Work is con­tin­u­ing at a pace at Warren Place here in New­mar­ket. All that has been left stand­ing now is the house and front yard, all the sta­bles and build­ings at the rear have been de­mol­ished. Henry Ce­cil wouldn't know the place now, his lovely gar­den has all been bull­dozed and look like a bomb has dropped on it. The work is be­ing car­ried out by Doyle Con- struc­tion and hope­fully will look good on com­ple­tion in time for the new trainer to move in with the new horses and staff.

Per­haps Godol­phin will do well out of Warren Place but it is hard see­ing Henry's lovely gar­den de­stroyed as it has been, he ab­so­lutely adored his gar­den and took great pride in it.

Blue Point, run­ner up re­cently to the Al Shaqab Rac­ing-owned Mehm as will be out next at Don­caster this month. Char­lie Ap­pleby tells me he wants to have the colt held up in be­hind so he can use his turn of foot.

They may put in a pace­maker to en­sure a strong pace, this is a se­ri­ous colt and he will run at the St Leger meet­ing in ei­ther the Cham­pagne Stakes or the Fly­ing Scots­man. What­ever he does this year is a bonus as he should strip a bet­ter horse for next sea­son for the boys in blue.

David Lani­gan and his wife Amy will be mov­ing back to New­mar­ket in De­cem­ber to train out of Eve Lodge on the Hamil­ton Road hav­ing pur­chased the place from Lester Pig­gott re­cently. David is a fine han- dler and will be wel­comed back to head­quar­ters by his many friends. He has many loyal own­ers and his tran­si­tion should be smooth.

Tom Clover, who has been as­sis­tant trainer to David and Jen­nie Sim­cock for the past six years, is to set up train­ing on his own next sea­son. Jackie Jarvis, daugh­ter of the late trainer Michael Jarvis, will as­sist Tom. He says he will be train­ing out of Wroughton House in the Old Sta­tion Road.

Trainer Jeremy Noseda is ea­ger to get his good filly NE­MORALIA into the win­ners en­clo­sure soon while the ground is fast like she loves it. She is rid­den in her work by Jeremy's wife Kerri and they have been cut­ting a right dash in their work on the Al Ba­hathri lately, the filly is in rude health at the mo­ment.

Fi­nally, the 17th and 18th Septem­ber is our open week­end here at New­mar­ket. Many of the sta­bles will be open­ing to the pub­lic along with other at­trac­tions. Do come if you pos­si­bly can you will be given a warm wel­come and a visit to the head­quar­ters of rac­ing to re­mem­ber.
