Strategic Action continued his good form today (31/10/2012) when he finished 3rd in a 6 furlong handicap at Lingfield. Ridden by Seb Sanders, he jumped out in mid field until being asked for an effort 2 furlongs out. He started to make progress on the leaders from the furlong pole and moved into a clear third, being beaten a length and a half and earning £251 for his owners. The way he was running on at the finish suggests he might well get 7 furlongs on this surface.

The temperatures plummeted overnight making it real National Hunt weather. The owners were quite happy to stay in the warm eating a hearty cooked breakfast (first white pudding for months) before a quick visit to the gallops, in a bitter wind, to watch their horses work. While some cantered on the wood-chip gallop, She's Humble preferred the grass and kept Shannon warm doing several circuits of the fields.
