Part of a new segment for The Winners Enclosure we will be speaking to David O'Meara and his team ahead of the weekend, discussing his runners chances and how the stable is coping during this unprecedented time.
David O'Meara is a handler based in the North of England, more specifically at Willow Farm, Upper Helmsley, York and has primed himself at getting winners up and down the country.
With this season on the flat starting later than expected, it has been a strange period for everyone in the sport especially for trainers, but O'Meara and his assistant trainer Jason Kelly have been happy with how the yard have started this term.
Jason Kelly said: "In the first 10 days we have had 45 runners, four winners which is a decent return and puts us slightly ahead of our piers in the north.
"Our big positive so far has been our two year olds, we have been thrilled with how they have been running so far and we believe we have a nice bunch of them this season.
"We have had six two year old runners, three of them have gone on to win with Campachoochoo, Stay Smart and Brazen Belle leading the way, Steadman was also impressive finishing second to The Lir Jet, who now looks one of the favourites for the Norfolk Stakes at Ascot.
"We have also had two other runners that have ran with credit, so our youngsters have really hit the ground running and we are delighted with them with more two year olds to unleash throughout the season.
"We should have a good season with our two year olds based on how they have started and overall it has been a positive start."
With a superb start with their two year olds the yard have also had some nice runs from their older horses, with plenty of them going to come on for the run.
Kelly added: With our older horses we have also had two winners but from more runners and for the most part they have looked like they have needed the run slightly, which is to be expected with almost six months without racing.
"However, we have had some horses show some real signs of encouragement starting with Firmament who ran a really good race at Newcastle, he just faded late on but he looked to be as good as ever.
"Summerghand was another who ran a cracker, he was probably not in the best position on the track at Newmarket but ran on well for second.
"Those two go to Ascot next week.
"If the older horses, as we expect, take a step forward for their first run the two of them will be in peak condition for Ascot with two big races lined up for them.
"Overall we are very happy with the start of the season and our older horses should take improvement from their first runs and hopefully the two year olds can continue as they have started."
