Romantic Proposal I was concerned that the ground might have gone a bit quick for her but she reveled in it,. She ran very well here earlier in the year and I didn't think it would take me as long as it did to win a maiden with her. It's nice to win with those colours (Clipper Logistics Group) again. He (Steve Parkin) always has a horse with us and we've had a bit of good luck with him with the likes of Agnes Stewart, Midnight Cross and Hot Stone. She did it well. We'll see what the handicapper does and try and find a fillies handicap for her. My daughter bought her as a foal and Joe (Foley) bought her as a yearling off her, so she's been lucky for me with the foals she's bought.

Raven's Cry She is a nice filly and this race fitted in well after Galway and conditions suited. She had run over a mile previously at Bellewstown so I thought she'd be ok doing that today. William (Kennedy, owner) bred her and she is the first foal so we'd like to get a bit of black type. She has plenty of options, she is in the Moyglare and Prix Marcel Boussac and races like the Ingabelle Stakes (at Leopardstown) or the Moyglare would be an option next. It depends on how she comes out of this but the aim will be to get black type.
