This new lad is Noduff Luxor formerly known in Ireland as Tir Chonaill. At the time of joining us he’s had only two trials at Derry and is a blank canvass for Jooles and Jason to work with. He is to be known in the kennel as Timone who, Jooles tells me, is a character in the Lion King which looks like some kind of weazle. This beautiful black dog certainly does not look like that.
Timone should be trialling since but it looks like the Racing Office may have mislaid his Irish book so a further delay looks on the cards!
