won Group 2 and three races at Longchamp, Deauville and Chantilly, as well as Rambling Bear, Welshman, Lemhill, Teapot and more recently the six time winner Stellarta.
Every horse in the yard receives individual attention and Mike enjoys working with each one to find how to get the very best from them. Attention to detail and quality not quantity are important points that are focused on.
The horses in the yard are happy and relaxed and enjoy their work, and the owners also have an equally enjoyable time.
Supreme Chance | Lingfield
Not the biggest, has been gelded since his last run. This is his second run in a handicap and this looks like quite a competitive one. If he improves on his last run I will be happy.
Moon Artist | Lingfield
She ran fairly well last time at Lingfield beaten less than four lengths. The step up in drip definitely helped and we are looking for a good run today.
