Silver Sheen We always thought he was a nice horse and the soft ground really helps him,. I bought him myself for GBP30,000 for John Turner last February and he is from the family of Moscow (Flyer). The first horse John had with Willie Mullins had Hurricane Fly in the page and he said we'll buy the one with Moscow (Flyer) in the page. We'll try and find another race like that next before we let him loose into any higher company but he couldn't have done it better there. It's nice to get a winner for John Turner - he has a nice few horses in England and with Willie (Mullins) and this is the first horse we've had for him. Mrs representing

Honeysuckle I'm delighted with that. I was a bit nervous beforehand, I have to say. Rachael was really happy with her and we couldn't have asked her to do any more. She said she was grand on the ground, she said it was tough out there. I'm delighted to get it for Kenny Alexander and it's just nice to have her back, and start her season off well. We need to sit down and discuss thing now. She's in the Hatton's Grace so we'll see. It's a bit frustrating because the two mares races we have are both for horses that haven't won Grade 1s. The one at Punchestown next week is understandable, that's a Listed race, and then the Grade 3 at Christmas is for mares that haven't won a Grade 1 so she's quite limited in mares races between now and Christmas. She's in the Hatton's Grace and then we'll look at Christmas as well but I haven't really discussed anything yet. I don't think we'd go across the water unless the lads want to.
