Karakour I was delighted with him; he's a very green horse and it's a lot to ask first time out from a wide draw. Pat did really well to get a good position on him, and when he was challenged he tries really hard. There is a lot of improvement in him; he's a typical Aga Khan horse as he's lazy at home but he did well to rally back.

Invincible Ryker I thought Ross gave him a very good ride from a wide draw,. The plan was to go forward but they were going hard and he just took him back and settled him in. He got a nice clear run. Seven is a good trip for him. Whether they went too hard in front, I don't know, but he came home well. I'm delighted to give Ross a winner. He's in riding out for us for the past few months and he's heading off to Australia tomorrow for a month. That'll give him a bit of a boost. He rides well. He used his head well on him and the 3lb was a help. I'm delighted to get the first of the year out of the way. He'll keep him going up here as he loves the surface and seven is probably his ideal trip.

Kirk's Dancer she had a very promising first run here behind Winter and then met with a serious accident at home that knocked the stuffing out of her and it took us a long time to get her back. She loves that surface and has got stronger in herself lately. She got the trip well and was always capable of doing something like that. Pat liked her and said she put it to bed easy. We’ll keep going with her. Eric Koh is Singapore based and I’d like to thank him for his patience with her. Hopefully she will pay the rewards now.
