Perhaps I’m an eternal optimist but I’ve got a feeling that Jonathan Trott may turn out to be something special. He’s taken his time to make his test debut (28) but the finest wines take the longest to mature. He just looks right to me somehow.
Swindon lost their first game 5-0, but I’ve become optimistic there as well. They seem to have the elements of a cohesive team rather than a random bunch of talented players – maybe this year.
I have a runner in Deauville today and another in a tomorrow – Where’s the Soap looks to follow up her Deauville maiden today and Ruler of my Heart steps up to listed class tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
