Rio (Update)

Although he's only run twice this season and finished third both times, Rio is going to have a rest for a few months before next seasons campaign starts all over again.

The weather has been our worst enemy this year, with meetings being cancelled or abandonded due to flooding or heavy snow. We would have liked him to have four races at least but two will have to do.

A couple of months playing in the field and eating well will do him the world of good. Next season he'll come back fitter, bigger and stronger.

Cheltenham here we come.

No, thats not me on him. Thats Barry Geraghty.
