- IMPROVING BALKO DES FLOS WINS THE PLATE -

 

 

" That was brilliant and I'm delighted. He got super ride from Davy and I can't believe we've won it again — it's amazing to win it for a second time in three years.

 

 Watching the race progress you were certainly starting to think you had a right chance bar a fall or something nasty happening, but fair play to the horse he jumped super and everything went our way today.

 

Hopefully he looks to be an improving horse. We'll make a plan after I speak to Eddie and Michael. "
