Lapilli That was great. The blinkers worked a treat,. Kevin Manning rode him the last day and he just arrived in front too soon. He said maybe to ride him a bit cold and we went for the blinds just to be sure. He's been a bit frustrating all year and we fancied him a lot of days during the summer. We thought he was well handicapped but obviously he was looking for the blinds. It's been a crossbar kind of night. We were second with the mare in the big race and the lads were unlucky in the first with Amanaat while Kerosin ran a bit flat. It was good to get a winner out of it as we had a good few runners. He's entered at Wolverhampton next Wednesday but I'm not sure if I'll go there. He'll probably come back up here. There is a 70 race over five here in two weeks time. It's great for the lads. They are good supporters of mine and have a good string with me now. They are all running well and long may it last.
