Shanklys Dawn It's great to get a few winners again. The horses have been running well all year but we probably just don't have the standard of horses that we can really compete with. On top of that we were getting a lot of seconds. I minded a few of the winter horses because the ground has been so good all year. The handicapper has been good to this one. She is back to the mark which she won off last year. I thought she was very unlucky in Wexford the last day after she made a mistake. The mare won well last night and Adam gave this one a great ride this evening. It's lovely to get a few winners. We will be quiet enough for the summer but we have some very nice horses for the winter if I can manage to keep going to get there!

The Red Menace Just in the last 20 yards the other horse seemed to find a gear and I thought we were beat,. He jumped brilliant the whole way. In his bumpers he never used to travel but he travelled great today and the jump at the last won it. He worked brilliant the other day and he never does that. He wants three miles. We’ll see what the handicapper does and he’s a novice until later in the year so he can run in long distance novice races over the summer.

Rebel Early She was unlucky here the last day when she was flying home but fell. She actually never travelled today because she got a fright when a horse stood on her the last day and she was very sore afterwards. She would have been in the shake-up then but got a desperate fall. She was very careful early on today and she was some ride in fairness to Rachael. We will fiddle away with her and will go chasing eventually but like a lot of those mares, if you win one or two of those races, away they go.
