Etoile She is a work companion with the other filly and is very well bred. Seamus was just saying that he rode her mother in the Irish Oaks to finish third behind two of ours (Moonstone and Ice Queen in 2008),.

Pistoletto He banged his hip going into the stalls and then got unset and kicked off both his back shoes. There are plenty of marks on his back legs so he did well really. It wasn’t a good experience for him,.

Happen I'm delighted with her and we're thinking of coming back here for the Tattersalls Gold Cup. She's coming along lovely. They went a good gallop today. Seamus didn't dawdle around in front (on Flag Of Honour) and there were three Group 1 winners in the race plus Jessie's horse (The King) is decent as well. Flag Of Honour is getting his act together. The reason we were a bit hard on him last year was because he acted up in France last year, so we just had to waken him up a bit. He'll be better again when he goes up in trip again to a mile and a half plus. The Coronation Cup could be a possibility but we will see how Kew Gardens gets on first. Kew Gardens will run in Chester and if he's okay going around there he could go for the Cornoation. He disappointed there in the Derby last year but maybe it was because we didn't give him a chance and rode him to far forward.

Peace Charter That was nice. It's all about two-year-old's for me and she's our first throw of the dice,. I don't have to do much with these horses when they come to me. They are all very straight forward. My job is just to cuddle them, make sure that they're eating and sleeping and learning how to gallop. That's her first time on grass and you'd like to think there is plenty of improvement in her given the way we do our business. Colin said she rode very green. There were rumours about the second and if they are to be believed it means we have a smart horse. I'm delighted with her and you'd like to think there is plenty of improvement. The obvious race would be to come back here for the fillies listed contest. I'd say she'll learn plenty from that, and will need to. Going forward we always thought she was a seven-furlong plus filly. It's nice to see our first throw of the dice with two-year-old's winning. The rest of them will be a long time coming out as we have very few to go early. Colin said it didn't even feel like he was going to get there early doors, he was in trouble and she wasn't letting herself down, but that was pure greenness. As I said we don't bring them away. I love them to run and if they win we'll handle it but I love them to improve for the benefit of the run. It was my first War Front. He seems to be the order of the day at the minute and I'm delighted to have one.
