Mrs Milner She got herself into it with her jumping and he finished with plenty of mare as well and had loads left so please god she'll improve away,. I didn't think she'd be able to do it as good as that but it is nice to get a bit of ground for her. I'm not sure if she'll handle it testing or not but we won't left her out anyway. Sean's claim is a help and I think he is a very good chap. He has been very unlucky with a few injuries but hopefully they are behind him. He is riding at the right time of the year now so please god he'll stay in one piece and hopefully the screws that are in him will hold!

Fortune Street It's the first time with the ground and the way the race was run that everything just panned out for him,. He got hampered one year in the Land Rover bumper, he finished seventh, and wasn’t beaten that far but then he had loads of trouble after that. He wanted soft ground and Barry thinks he could be smart. The last day was a three furlong sprint. The winner won snug but the race wasn't run to suit him. I'm hoping he'll kick on from here now and stay sound. We'll see what will happen but he could possibly go for a winners bumper.

Our Friend He's a lovely horse and we always thought a bit of him. I thought he might run respectable and we might go back for a bumper but I told Kevin if it's happening it's happening. He's a nice horse, I loved his attitude, loved the way he jumped - for a horse first time out the way be behaved himself. You are straight into winners' company now so it's not easy. Kevin said he didn't think there will be any problem stepping him up in trip because he just did everything so relaxed, and he travelled well for him.

Latest Exhibition I think if it was softer he'd handle it better and while you couldn't call it impressive any of the hurdles he had to jump (three hurdles were bypassed due to low-lying sun) he was foot-perfect at every one. He is from a staying family and is out of a mare Aura About You who won a Listed hurdle and was third at Cheltenham to Quevega. I think he'll stay all day and I think he will improve a good bit from today. If you come out to the better tracks you are going to meet Envoi Allen and a better type of horse and while he was entered at Wexford, I thought the track would be too tight for him. Rachael said he was still immature and we'll see how he comes out of this but he could run in a Graded novice hurdle next. That's Rachael's first winner for me and she is brilliant but I feel sorry for Bryan (Cooper) who unfortunately has no luck at all at the moment.
