Soffia It was probably a combination of jockey being right and trainer being right,. I wanted to go for this, Declan said she was getting quicker now and five was her best trip. We might have been both right. I think maybe five is her best trip now. I know we won so we got away with it. She was gutsy and in fairness I'd say the runner-up's best trip is seven and that was a help. She's just kept improving. She started off winning a maiden here, tipped along, and has just got better and better. She's owned by a very nice woman (Lady O'Reilly) and trained by a very nice fella!. I'll make an entry for the Flying Five and make an entry for the Sapphire. Declan is mad keen for me to go to England. He thinks she'd love England. I know those English sprints and know how good you have to be. She's won a Group 3 and won a Listed. She's not going to Royal Ascot or anything like that. I think we've a good enough program here, we didn't use to have it. We've the Sapphire on Oaks weekend and the Flying Five. When you've won a Listed and Group 3 you are just trying to raise their CV that little bit more. I can dream - I'm good at dreaming!

Soffia It’s nice to win a few quid of your own back as I sponsored the race with Sabina (Power, owner of Sole Power). She’s by the same sire as Sole Power as well, and has been running very well,.

Silk Cravat I was a little bit surprised and thought he would find it hard to turn around the form with Gavin’s horse (Nisior Donn). He can be a tricky so and so but Ben gave him a super ride. He came out of the race well on Saturday. He’s tough and he came off the grass really well and the ground was lovely. Hopefully he will come off this as well as the grass. He’s rated a lot lower on the grass so we’ll probably go back to that and see how we get on.
