Honeysuckle They are two amazing ladies. It was a great bit of race-riding to nip up the inside when Paul opted to go wide and it looks like it won her the race. Rachael had to sit and suffer for a bit, but when the gap appeared she was gone. She really toughed it out up the hill. She gets from A to B over her hurdles and that’s it. We never try to find out too much at home, but she has always looked nice and came to us highly recommended after winning her point. I don’t know about chasing, we haven’t even touched on that. It’s all been about this week. I always question myself, but she seems as good over two miles and further and goes on all ground. She really battled and threw herself at the last. Whatever about the mare, the lady on her back is something special — the pair of them are brilliant.

Honeysuckle It’s great to have a mare like her. She’s gone unbeaten so far, and we’ve had a lot of good days with her already. We’ll see how it all unfolds in the Irish Champion Hurdle. Touch wood, she has been fairly straightforward and very easy to have around. There’s nothing to suggest she won’t go left-handed, but until you go and do it you don’t know. We’re also dropping her back in trip to two miles, which again is a bit of an unknown at this level.

Honeysuckle “She just looked like she got a bit lonely going to the last. She's so tough and the lady on top of her is so tough. She really battled it out,” said de Bromhead.
“All credit to Petit Mouchoir and Davy Russell, he ran a brilliant race again and Gavin's horse looked very good.
“I had my heart in my mouth coming to the line. She probably needed it and our two went at it fairly early.
“Talk about adapting to two miles, she seemed brilliant. I thought she jumped well to be fair, maybe at the second Patrick jumped past her.
“At the second last I'm not sure if Rachael sat on her and Davy go a good jump or if she make a mistake. I think she was just lonely in front at the last.”
“Rachael is brilliant and I always say that we are very lucky to have her. She's just riding out of her skin and the mare is deadly.”
When asked where she would go from here he added:- “We'll enjoy today. We've won PCI Irish Champion Hurdle and we can discuss all that in time. I'm delighted to get today behind us.”
“We're very lucky to have these horses and get supported by great clients and we have a great team around us.”

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
