News Updates


Following a slightly disappointing 4th place at Chepstow, where things didn't fall into place, Diamond Dougal won impressively in a Class 2 at Haydock Park.

As expected nobody could make the long trip up to Carlisle, but it was felt the right race for Dougal to take his chance in.

It nearly paid off, as he travelled well throughout but never looked like catching the winner.  A good effort in second carrying a penalty following his Brighton win.


Diamond Dougal had a well deserved first win when taking the Nursery Handicap at Brighton yesterday, meaning both Flag Syndicate two year olds have won!

Diamond Dougal ran a very encouraging first race at Bath.  He pulled a little too hard early on but soon settled to track the leaders and stayed on at the finish to take a pleasing 3rd place.  It looked a competitive race so we remain positive and the experience will have done him the world of good.

Following her recent second, Aquadabra made another visit to Bath and went one better to gain her first, and well deserved win.

Having broken the sequence of coming third by taking 4th at Carlisle, Aquadabra ran a super race at Bath coming second and being beaten 3/4 of a length.

The pace was quicker early on which helped jockey, John Egan, get her settled and she travelled comfortably throughout.  Making their move about a furlong out, she picked up well but was never quite going to get to the winner.  Another gutsy performance and Mick is confident her time will come for the Winner's spot.

We've got 3rd-Itis!

Aquadabra has now run up a sequence of 4 thirds.

Her second run at Windsor was a decent race and she had to be pulled out to make her move and was beaten a length.

She then ran at Nottingham, where she started favourite but came up against two very useful individuals with the winner going onto claim black type in a Listed event on her next outing.

The filly was then given a bit of time and made her next outing at Salisbury where she faced colts for the first time and she was stepped up in trip to 6f.

She led for about 5 1/4 furlongs and travelled strongly throughout, however, the final 3/4 furlong found her out and she faded to finish 3rd again!

She is game and honest and Mick is sure she is capable of winning.


Aquadabra had her first run in a competitive fillies novice race at Wolverhampton.

She took the preliminaries in her stride and put up a really encouraging performance finishing 3rd beaten a length.

She travelled well throughout and showed a brief sign of greeness when hesitating to go through a gap, albeit a narrow one.  Jockey, Graham Lee said "she gave me a great feel, was going forwards at the finish, and if we hadn't had that brief hesitation we would have gone closer".

The race looked reasonable and this promising run hopefully bodes well for the season.
