Lady Rosebud Killian has ridden a few winners for me but that's as good a ride as he's given any horse for me,. We've had issues losing ground at the start and a lot of it is if she goes in a bit early. She gets a bit on her toe and stupid. We managed to go in last tonight which helped. She's never had as good a position after two furlongs than she had tonight. She battled well. I knew Ado's horse was well fancied and it was a right good battle for the last furlong-and-a-half. Killian felt he was always going to get there but I wasn't as convinced as he was. I think the rail made a difference. She's a good tough honest filly. She's had a bit of ground to make up in some of her last few starts. Her mother was a great old servant, and got better as she got older, so she might do the same thing. We like this filly and she's been a great servant.
