Magi Gal Some celebrations there! I'm just delighted for everyone connected, the people involved in her are brilliant loyal supporters. She's been a bit unlucky, through trainer error, horses falling in front of her and saddles going forward. She just hasn't had any luck. I knew the trip was right today but was worried about the ground, but she obviously handles it well. She's a very tough little filly, a cheap buy, so I'm delighted. Siobhan is my right-hand woman in the yard, she's brilliant and her riding is getting better every day. She definitely has a career ahead of her. To get up and pip Gavin Ryan, one of the best apprentices in the country, you couldn't ask for more than that and I'm delighted for her. She kept her going, kept her balanced and it's a fairytale to win on the nod.
