Uttoxeter has a very long home straight, or at least it felt that way cheering Diger Daudaie home on Saturday. We have been waiting a while for a winner, however the horses have been running well in defeat, it is always good to be in the winners enclosure. I bought Diger Daudaie from the Tattersalls Ascot March sale and he has since won two races. He doesn't carry any excess weight and has proved to be a hardy, tough horse for his owners, Mr and Mrs Perkins.
Forth Bridge then capitalised on an in-form Nico de Boinville ride to shake off his case of seconditis to win the Silver Bowl at Kempton. He benefited from a change of tactics, Nico, sat him in behind and he jumped and travelled beautifully. It is a privledge to saddle a winner for The Queen and we are delighted that he has now shaken his maiden tag over fences on the 11th attempt.
