Two runners sent out yesterday, after a very hot day had led to firming ground. Ruskin Red headed across to Bath for his racecourse debut and was a little slowly away so he began slightly detached from the field. Charlie Bishop gradually picked up the gap so that he raced in touch with the remainder, but Ruskin Red found the ground too quick to remain balanced and he was always in rear although he will come on a lot from the experience. My Sheila headed up to Leicester and the division of her ten furlong race was decimated by the withdrawal of eight horses, mainly on account of ground conditions. She was quite well away in the remaining field of four, and Daniel Muscutt gave her some nice cover in third as she went nicely enough after halfway. Turning into the straight My Sheila did find the ground a little too firm to let herself down fully, and although the first two got away she finished a clear third and will have enjoyed the experience much more than her all weather debut run. Racing TV pundits were complimentary enough about her improved run and felt that she will prove capable of winning a race soon.
