Great Trango That's my biggest win and the plan from 12 months ago was to run in the amateur handicap on Monday and this race on Saturday. Nothing went right on Monday and it was just a disaster and I went home sick. But it was no one's fault and Jamie (Codd) looked after the horse and that's what you get when you get the best; when things go wrong they look after them. There is nobody better off a light weight than Phillip (Enright) and he is a jockey always trying for you. There were no stalls tonight and the plan was to jump off good and handy and Philip was great on him all the way. He is one of the toughest horses in training and I'm very grateful to the owners for buying him. The Donohues have been great and he was bought as a replacement for Lagostovegas and he's not a bad replacement. He was beaten seven and a half lengths on Monday; we lost four lengths coming out of the stalls and he was last for a horse who needs to be prominent. Jamie said to run him again if he gets the ground at the end of the week, and said 'I hate to say it, but he did a lovely bit of work for you during the week!'
