Ask Susan She needed the break, the last day the ground was terrible. We gave her a good break and she is only back in six weeks. We thought she was working fairly well. I was coming with the other lad (Fort Montagu) and I said I would bring her and I'm glad I did. Mark said she has improved a lot from the spring. She jumped great, she would rather have those hurdles. They are cracking hurdles. We have a lot of options with her. If she stays winning hurdle races we will keep her at that. I loved her from day one. She's a half sister to that filly that Gordon Elliott had that got the black type earlier in the year (Three Swallowsnick). She's a good mare and I bought her in Goffs as a yearling and loved her always.

Swift shur she had to be fit because she carries me every day! I thought she’d run well but thought it might come a week too soon as we gave her a break after her last run. there is a great bunch of lads into her (Fair Of Borris Syndicate from Borrisoleigh) and they’ll enjoy it - I’ll be home a lot earlier than they are!. We’ll keep her going for the summer and these little tracks suit her. We’ll probably go for a chase later on but there’s no point jumping big ones when you win small ones!
