We sent five down to Ffos Las yesterday and after a couple of pleasing performances during the afternoon from the likes of Flying Vic and Jan Jandura, I was delighted to come away with a winner, with Ashes House most impressive in winning the concluding bumper.

A point winner in October last year, he had finished second on his first start under rules for us last season and, having been purchased by Diamond Racing in the interim, he made all the running and drew clear to win in a canter. He is from a useful jumping family and is an excellent prospect.
