Heltornic retired

Around this time of year I tend to find Christmas shopping interferes with the racing, much to my annoyance. In the past I've tried to delegate the shopping to Mrs Tips but she's cute enough to see through the ruse. Earlier today, having had enough of the shopping, I started some initial spadework on the Hennessy which takes place at Newbury on Saturday. I liked the look of Michael Scudamore's front-running mare Heltornic but I see she has been retired following the recurrence of an injury. Back to the drawing board...
