We should be in for an exciting season – latest West End Boy update from Joe Tizzard

West End Boy

West End Boy is in really good nick, basically he’s ready to run, but we just need some rain to take the sting out of the ground.

After a dry, warm spell the going at plenty of tracks just needs to ease a bit and that will happen. We’re already seeing plenty of rain around the country now. We’ve been so patient with him this far, we just need to wait a little bit longer, good to soft ground would be perfect, so it will come soon enough.

I’m really pleased with how he’s developed over the summer, he’s grown a bit and just strengthened up. Since we’ve upped his work in recent weeks, he’s done everything really nicely. His schooling has also gone really well, Brendan [Powell] is as happy with him as I am.

His final run last season was really encouraging, and following that we got his official mark, of 99. I really do think that’s a mark that gives him every chance of getting a win on the board now he’ll be running in handicaps, so we should be in for an exciting season.
