We had a nice treble on Saturday including two winners at Thirsk. International Lion got things started picking up the first win of his career. He was slowly away under Paddy Mathers and was asked for an effort on the outside over the final two furlongs. He picked up really well and made up a lot of ground to get up on the line and win by a neck.

Irreverent won nicely under Paul Hanagan. They tracked the leader and then joined him two furlongs from home. He took up the lead and won comfortably by a length-and-a-half for owners Mr and Mrs Wrigley.

Moon Of Love bought up the treble with a win at Wolverhampton. She tracked the leader under Barry McHugh and was asked for an effort approaching the final furlong. She had the lead over the last 50 yards and won by half-a-length. It was great to see her pick up her first win for owner The Cool Silk Partnership. Barry went on to ride his first ever treble!
