Ken's Sam's I won’t tell you what I was calling the handicapper after last Monday as she went up 21lb. We couldn’t get her into a race for two months because she was so lowly rated. I had her entered in England and here plenty of times and couldn’t get her in,. I was forced to run her here last week in a 0-85, and she got a winners penalty for winning nothing. I suppose winning here has proved him right but that shouldn’t really happen. I’m delighted for Tom Kelly, and it’s the first horse I’ve had for him. She’s in again at Newcastle and Lingfield during the week so more than likely she will be turned out again.

Annabelle Rock I’m going to get crucified! It was a good pot of money and you would have to win two handicaps to get it, so that’s why we said we’d have a go. She’s not a bad filly and I think she’ll be competitive next year in sprints. She ran well the last day behind my Beau Warrior who has gone up 19lb since. She was only a few lengths behind and if you put that form together she was entitled to go close.
