Passing Trade She has been Mrs Consistent for the past few years. She got chinned here last year on the line in this race and I said we'd come back and have another go at it. The syndicate is from the Goat Grill, including Charlie Chawke and Eamon Cleary. It's the first horse I've had for them and I'm delighted for them. She's in at Navan on Saturday and we'll run her again. She's a good, old, tough filly and I think the little bit of give in the ground helped too. That's her mark, around 70, but she has done her job now. She's a well-bred filly and she has two wins on her card now as well as a load of places. She doesn't really have to do much more.

Romantic Proposal It was a nice to get a nice win with her. It was the plan to go for one of these big races as we thought she was well enough handicapped and competitive. Plans seldom work but this one did,. She was very fresh the first day but she'd had a run. I was leaning towards running her in the seven furlong handicap but with the little bit of rain I thought this race might suit better. I talked to Joe Foley and he thought the same, between the two of us we got it right. It's nice to get a winner for Steve (Parkin) who is a big supporter of mine. Between Leeds winning the Championship and Eagles By Day winning at York he's having a good weekend.
