Caerleon Kate she was a big price (12/1) as she loves it around here. The last day in Navan she ran no race and Denis (O'Regan) said 'slower ground' for her, and bring her back here. He gave her a great ride. He knew she would do is stay up the hill, which she did and it was a fantastic ride. He's a top-class rider and the best hold-up jockey in the country. He gets plenty of criticism for leaving them too much to do but he knows where the winning post is, if the horse is good enough. The filly deserves it, she's had 29 runs and was very unlucky in being touched off here a couple of times by fair decent horses. I honestly thought in my own heart that today off 95 she wouldn't be good enough to win - I actually thought she wouldn't beat (stablemate) Shipwreck giving her 10lb, on homework but she proved me wrong.
