Turfani runs in the 1,900-meter handicap on Saturday, unfortunately in the top half, rather than the second division, of the race. She would have been perfectly placed in the second division, but after the cut she ended up bottom weight in the first. This is bad for a few reasons: I’ve had to change jockeys to accommodate the light weight of 52 kilos and the competition is much tougher here. In the second division, all the horses who were already eliminated and hold a priority entry got in, so the competition is much easier. I can’t do anything about it now, so we’ll have to make the best of it. Now we just need the snow to hold off so we can get there.

Best of luck. Hopefully she’ll surprise!
