Golden Poet That was great. They are local owners so it's always good to win here,. Fair play to the track for re-staging it so quickly. One of the owners is on the committee and he texted me on Sunday morning when I was just about to leave to say racing was called off. I was gutted and nearly got sick because I fancied this lad strongly. I thought he'd win today but it was a competitive handicap and you still have to go and do it. He carried 11-8. I nearly fell off him at the last but other than that he was straight-forward enough. It's just mighty for the yard because every horse is running well even in defeat. They are all hitting the crossbar, going over or going under. It keeps the staff happy, the owners happy and makes my job easy.

Mezajy yesterday morning I wasn't sure I had picked the right one (to ride), because the other horse (Nulife) has ability, but it's hard to get it out of him. He (Nulife) won here before and we had to come here as he needs to go left-handed. the winner loves this ground, he rattles off it and hasn't had it since Bellewstown last summer. It's great for connections (JRM Racing Syndicate), and they have another runner in the next.
