Contingency She was grand and jumped well enough. Once they changed pace it took her a while to adjust, but got going then over the last two. When Shark's mare (Mega Mindy) changed the pace up the hill it just caught her out, and it was just a typical novice mistake. She wasn't used to changing speed. She jumped that last two well enough. We will probably try and keep her novice chasing for the summer, if I can find more mares chases especially over a longer trip. I'm hoping she'll improve.

Heliac Cork is good to us. We’re delighted with that. The fillies are just coming to themselves now. Colin said she was green as grass - she’ll come on a tonne for that. Her ears were pricked from the word go,. She had to do it the hard way because he didn’t want it to be a dawdle. He let her use her stride and he knew she’d go on the ground. It was like a piece of work to her today, and the main thing is that she got a bracket — for her breeding and everything, it’s most important. But I think she’ll improve for that and for a step up in trip. Colin said she’s get a mile and a half no problem. It opens up a lot of doors, but we’ll see what mark the handicapper gives her too. We get a thrill out of getting winners in those colours because they were our favourite colours when we were kids, and they’re lovely people to work with.
