Zinat she deserved it and got nice summer ground today. We changed tactics today and it was probably our fault all along; she liked it out in front but we said we'd go the opposite today and just dropped her in. She might have a go on the flat now as she has a nice rating and if the ground is good we might go for a 1m4f handicap. She'll turn out again fairly soon as she handled her racing well.

Fearless Girl She is a lovely filly and is maturing all the time. She is quite tall and there should be more to come from her; Joey said she struggled a bit on the ground and she'd prefer it a bit nicer,. She has come forward with every run and we'd be hopeful there will be more to come. She has a very nice pedigree, she will keep improving next year and could go down the black-type road.

Romanised It's lovely to see him back as it's been ten months,. We were anxious to start him on his own doorstep and what better place than here in a race he's won before and obviously he has good form here. I'm delighted with that. He's a year older and wiser and he was just a little bit slow to jump off (on the way to start) but then he seemed to go down very nicely. Billy said he gave him a great feel and that's the most important part of the day. I liked the way he looked to race just behind the bit all the time. Every time he gave him a squeeze he came forward. He had a choice late on whether to go around Ronan or stay where he was and he backed the horse to quicken for him when he needed him. He's very pleased and I'm delighted. He had a blow too but it's important after being out for so long as there is no substitute for a match, you can do all the training you like. He wouldn't be mad about that ground, it's dead ground, he wants genuine good ground, just on the fast side is what he needs. Then you can really see his acceleration and turn of foot. His penultimate furlong in Deauville that time was 10.6 seconds, he has the ability to really quicken. He's overcome the ground and done it in a very good way. I'm sure he'll take plenty from the race. Billy said he had a nice blow and he knows he's had a race. I'm sure that will bring him on. He'll go back to Deauville now to try and win the Jacques Le Marois again. It's four weeks so it's a nice bit of time between now and then for
