Activial Auteuil Bound
We start the new jumps season on Sunday with our first runner in France.
Activial sets out today on the journey to Auteuil in Paris where he runs in the valuable Grade 2 Prix Leon Rambaud.
Although he is the highest rated horse in the field he looks quite well in with only 63 kilos, that's 9 st 12 lbs, to carry.
Activial has run really well all season without managing to get his head in front which has been a bit frustrating.
I thought he was on a fair mark handicap back in the autumn and now he Is 16 lbs higher!
The trip of two miles, three and a half furlongs looks ideal on Sunday and with soft ground likely everything is in place for big run.
