David O'Meara had a decent day with his runners at Ascot and at other meetings in England yesterday with two winners and some nice places with horses at big prices.
We caught up with him to discuss how his runners had come out of their respective races and asked him what the early signs were with them for what would happen next.
The trainer said: We had 12 runners out yesterday gaining two winners and hitting the woodwork in the Duke Of Cambridge at Ascot with AGINCOURT.
"We will start with a two year old filly of ours MY BEST FRIEND who ran with a visor on over seven furlongs who did ok, but got slightly tired late on and he probably wants to come back to six furlongs next time.
"He should be ok in a two-year-old six furlong novice contest next time out
"SHELIR ran a lovely race in the Buckingham Palace finishing fifth, the first four home were all drawn in double figures and he faired the best of the horses in the lower numbers.
"We were really happy with him and maybe should have run him over a mile as he looked like he stayed the seven furlongs very well and could have maybe have done with another furlong.
"FIRMAMENT, Everything went wrong for him, he is a horse that likes a lot of cover, he doesn't like to have to work to hard in a race, he likes to smuggle his way through and have to put in a little bit of a shift at the end.
"However, he unloaded early on and was basically pulled up.
"ESCOBAR ran really well in a very slowly ran Queen Anne, they absolutely hacked it with it being won by a run at the front by Circus Maximus.
"Escobar was still travelling a furlong out and when Adam Kirby went for him he was trying to quicken by Group One horses, that were themselves quickening, which was next to an impossible task but he did run well and we are sure he will have another big season.
"We were a little disappointed yesterday with our filly at Thirsk MAHARG'S PRINCESS, we thought she would run a bit better than that.
"We did have a pleasant surprise with a filly at Thirsk called ETERNAL BLUSH, we thought she would be a bit green and we would need a run to get her wise to the job, but as it turned out she won and did it nicely.
"She was given a lovely ride by David Nolan.
"AGINCOURT was the heartbreak of the day.
"I went down to Ascot wondering why she was 40/1 as I thought she had a great chance and I could not believe the price of her.
"I was going down thinking she would be third, but i came away gutted she didn't win as she was in front in the final furlong and got collared on the line.
"It was a tough one really.
"SEAS OF ELZAAM ran at Thirsk and was a little disappointing and we will probably go back up to seven furlongs as we thought he would win that.
"In the end he faded and finished sixth by about three lengths but I am sure he will be winning before long probably wanting to go back up in trip.
"Sean Kirrane, our new apprentice had his first ride for us at Chelmsford on EYE SMILING and she won nicely by two-and-a-half-lengths.
"She has got one entry that she could follow up with under her penalty but if there are a couple a more races for her she will be given more entries.
"We will try to get her in again before the handicapper reassesses her.
"HARD SOLUTION ran himself into a bit of form, he ran ordinary yesterday as did another horse CONSTANT who looks hugely ungenuine.
"Finally SUDONA was second again, she was a new filly to us this year and we have fancied her the last two runs and she has finished second, but beaten by horses that have looked well handicapped.
"She has done nothing wrong and will be winning before long.
