We've had a busy Easter as we have managed to get a few horses out onto the track now we have some decent ground. Joanne One won a competitive bumper at Huntingdon on Monday, where Brendan Powell gave her an absolute peach of a ride to get her up in the dying strides of the post. She didn't make life easy for Brendan, but he cajoled her into a challenging position, and she picked up really well when she hit the home straight, and won going away.

Breaking Bits and Soutine both ran great races to be 2nd on Sunday at Plumpton, where Ballyboker Boy was third as well. Zava River was given a typically patient hold up ride to be 3rd at Exeter on Tuesday, where Sandy's Double unfortunately failed to follow up his Wincanton win under a 7lbs penalty - he's due to go up 14lbs for that success, and so we had to have a go, but the ground had just dried out a bit much for him.
