We have run four horses so far at the start of this new turf season, and all four have done us proud.At Redcar on Easter Monday both Burnage Boy, and Rockcliffe ran seasonal bests, both signalling that a win may not be too far away. At Pontefract on Tuesday The Rutland Rebel probably ran a career best in finishing second in the Jamaican Flight handicap, but pride of place once again belongs to the winning machine that is Dragons Will Rise.

Stepping up in grade, from a 5lb higher mark, and back on turf, proved no problem to this horse who has now won five of his last seven starts. He was always handy from a good draw, and once again in the the hands of Robert Havlin, one of the countries top jockeys, he showed a willingness to win, when putting his head down, and battling all the way to the line, for a half length win. Make no mistake this is a tremendous success story, which could be well from finished.

Congratulation to the connections, The Golden Cuckoo.
