The first two winners of the 2018/19 season are both owned and bred by Mrs Flory, the full brother and sister, Nightline and Nightfly have won at Bangor and Ludlow respectively. Both appreciate the better ground and whilst Nightfly runs her best races over 2 miles, Nightline is an out and out stayer. By the late Midnight Legend, they are out of a sister to the great Alderburn. Nightline has taken his time to win, however has run some terrific races in defeat at Doncaster through the winter so this was not out of turn. Hopefully now he has got his head in front, he will continue the form.
