Eacharn It was close enough and I thought we were beat,. The race suited, it was a strong pace in it. He idles a bit when he hits the front and if he had seen the other horse coming he might have gone with him if he was beside him. He timed it well but he does pull up a bit in front. It's grand to win one with him again and we'll keep on the go.

Surrounding She's a credit to herself and the people who bred her (the Newell's) because they've been game to keep her in training. You don't see too many six-year-old mares in training on the Flat,. She's obviously a very sound filly, a genuine filly, and she's just a pleasure to have around the place. For some reason she just took off this year and she never stopped improving. That's probably as good a performance as she's given all year. She's so adaptable to ride, you can do anything you like with her. Once we just land her here fit and well she does her job. She's been fantastic and it's exciting for the owners as they really enjoy their racing and take full benefit of it. I think we're going to go to Dubai with her. I think conditions out there will suit her. The way she finished out there tonight she's still fresh and has more mileage on the clock so we'll take our chance. The Balanchine would probably be a race that comes to mind, that's a Group 2. They are all fantastic races with huge prize-money. We'll get her out there and see how she takes it. I've always thought she'd be one that would love it out there from what we know about the place. She'd enjoy the sun on her back and she's easy to keep fit, so I think she'll fit in well to the team out there. We'd hope to have Simsir and Massif Central to travel with her. The plan at the moment is that the three would go.
