Born winning her first hurdle means a lot; she’s such a hardy filly. Through the summer we were getting her so wrong we were considering retiring her but as soon as she’s got her conditions she’s back thriving. There’s such a big difference between flat soft ground and jump soft ground but either way it’s how she likes it; it was very soft indeed yesterday. Because they had a little rain over the weekend they were able to cut through the ground and I think that makes the difference to her. James gave her a smart ride too, always looking for fresh ground. Her low weight helped massively in the conditions; she only carried 10st 4lb and the 2nd mare carried even less I think. I guess the handicapper will be harsh as she won comfortably but she does look like she could go up a grade. We will keep pitching her in better races off low weights where we can. We don’t need to rush her; there is a mares handicap hurdle at Newbury on 28th December we will keep in mind as we all love going to Newbury. Looking further forward, the race she won yesterday was a part of a series which leads to a final in April at Haydock. It’s a big pot up for grabs so it would be nice to have a go but it’s still a long way off and it depends what sort of spring we have.
