My Newbrook Rose the last day the ground was very heavy and she didn't act on it at all. I thought she'd run well today as she had a nice run here in a maiden so I was expecting her to step up a bit. That's her first time to run over this trip on the track and I wasn't too worried about it as she'd won over three miles in a point-to-point before. We'll look for something similar. We'll go for another hurdle anyway and she could jump a fence next year.

Shopping Around She can go up in trip and over a fence - we'd slow down Frankel if we got a hold of him so she'll be going further and jumping bigger. She is a lovely mare for lovely people. I hope Jamie never retires, he was brilliant on her and rode her twice in her point to points and won on his second ride on her. He was in our place on Monday morning and said he never felt worse in his life. He said his weight is great at the moment but rang me yesterday to say he was struggling.

Aarons Day We were concerned about the ground. I walked the track earlier and the hurdle course was a good bit better than the chase track so we said we’d run him.
