16 | 2014 | Bahri | Ex Mill Lady

This filly has been given plenty of time to mature before having three runs on the Flat to see if she was going to be a superstar - she did not show very much so we switched to Hurdles and in her first Juvenile Hurdle race at Market Rasen - at odds of 100/1 she came second despite being hampered by a horse that fell in front of her. She has now been second beaten a nose after being hampered - great things ahead.

He was only a length out of the prize money. His next run at Musselburgh was on ground that was just too fast for him.
