My Favourite would have to be York and the Dante Meeting!

Having my first ever Royal Ascot winner in 2016 with Quiet Reflection winning the Group one Commonwealth Cup! Great day had by all involved!

Ambitions:

To have as many group winners as possible and the have a runner in Australia!

I would have deffinatley been a deck chair attendant on a Caribbean beach somewhere! 

One horse that you are most looking forward to?

Finery, a two year old filly owned by The Cheveley Park Stud.
