Paul Flynn is enjoying his best year with over 20 winners under both codes and the dual-purpose Longford trainer is already looking forward to next season with stablestar Little Queenie.

The grey daughter of Camacho won three times this year, twice over six furlongs at Naas and Dundalk and in-between over the minimum trip at the Curragh.

The four-year-old was also runner-up in the valuable Doneraile Handicap at Cork and won over €50,000 in prizemoney this term.

"She's home in Galway now. She's going to come back and have a good rattle next year to see if we can nick a little bit of black-type and also run in good handicaps at the Curragh,” said Flynn.

"She has gone up to 87 now and, if she can improve a bit more, she will be interesting. We might come back to Dundalk before it closes just to give her a prep run and if she wins, great.

"The plan will be to win what we can but she wouldn't want too soft a ground, so we want to keep her fresh for the year.

"We could even bring her to England to try and nick a bit of black-type, I'm not used to looking at black-type races!

"She's a great little filly."
