Analysis

Paul Blockley: "That's two for 2014 so it's a good start. I don't know how we'll beat winning in America but we've some nice two-year-olds and some more expensive ones than usual. We'll just have to find out if they are any good now, but the dreams are there. We learned a bit more about (Saharia) after his first run and I think he's better round here than Lingfield."
