WE'LL SHAKE HANDS makes it two wins for the season when stepped upto One Mile 2 furlongs at Newcastle ridden by Ben Curtis.

KATIE'S DIAMOND makes it two wins from two starts in first time colours of Qatar racing who purchased her with one of our owners Barbara Keller. We were delighted for her to win being our first horse for them and an exciting prospect for the future. She now heads to France.

ODELIZ gets her head infront in Hamburg after finishing in the places for the majority of the season. She really deserved her Group win and Owner Barbara Keller was delighted to see her get her head infront on her first trip to Germany. She may well now go to France in August.

LORD BEN STACK the huge son of Dylan Thomas was unlucky not to get his head back infront at Haydock under Graham Lee when being touched off by a neck after being denied a clear run in the final furlong. He is a horse with plenty of potential and should keep improving with time. Graham Lee was very impressed by him and were hoping to see him come on nicely from that run.

JAYKAY makes it two wins in a week both times at Ayr and both ridden by Joey Haynes who rode out his claim on his second win on him. He thrives at this time of year and enjoys the front running tactics that saw him score easily. He will now go with a penalty and head to Hamilton.

DALMARELLA DANCER was narrowly denied a double back at Windsor when going down by a nose in a photo finish. She has ran well both times at Windsor under yard apprentice Jordan Vaughan and may head back there next week.

YOURE FIRED ran another solid race when finishing third coming through the pack late on under Graham Lee at York. He prefers a little more give under foot but put up a genuine gutsy performance.

MOONDYNE JOE makes a winning debut under Ben Curtis at Carlisle in the two year old sprint. The good looking son of Bushranger hung on gamely and should come on for the run.

The always consistent TRIXIE MALONE finished in the money again finishing in second place at Carlise, she is a super tough filly and always tries her heart out!

DALMARELLA DANCER put her best foot forward when gaining her second career win at Windsor under a good ride from stable apprentice Jordan Vaughan. She has been frustrating since her three year old win but we are delighted to see her back in front.

LITTLE LADY KATIE won the feature handicap at Ayr only to be disqualified and placed into second position after drifting over on the second. It was a great shame for all connections involved but she has defiantly trained on at three and were hoping she can gain another win again soon.

BARBAROUS RELIC won at Ayr on his second career start under Ben Curtis, upped to six furlongs made all the difference and the son of American sire Scat Daddy should keep improving.

MILLENIUM FALCON finished third in the conditions race at Chelmsford where she didn't handle the sharp bend and they broke the track record.

KELLY'S DINO was another two year old to make a winning debut at Carlisle even after making hard work of it being left 8 lengths coming out of the stalls and coming wide round his rivals. He should come on a lot for the run like most of our two year olds and is bred for further.
