Goodnightngodbless It is great to see her get her head in front as she has been disappointing and the penny just wasn't dropping with her. We ran her over 2m4f the last day and I felt she was staying on a bit and decided to step up to three miles,. On her form she surprised me but she works ok at home and if anything she can be lazy. She minds herself a bit and Luke gave her a great ride. She wouldn't want the ground too quick and if it goes fast she'll get a break.

Na Trachtalai Abu I don't know when my last winner was! He did it well. I thought when he got sandwiched up a bit turning in, and Glenwood Forever got first run on us, that we were in trouble. I don't know if he had stood up whether we would have got to him or not. He does like something to chase though. I was afraid when Glenwood Forever fell that we were in front too soon as he does pull himself up a bit in front. Thankfully the loose horse helped us out a bit and in fairness to Donie he gave him a great ride and settled him lovely. He does run well fresh and won first time out last year in Kilbeggan. You're always a little bit afraid after a layoff coming back that you have them fit enough but thankfully he was.
