A very busy late afternoon and evening for the stable yesterday, starting with Sonnetina going down to Brighton for a one mile handicap race. She is such a consistent filly and once again ran a great race to finish third of ten runners, beaten just over three lengths by two horses coming down from higher ratings. Sonnetina may now look to go up in trip next time and she is sure to remain competitive at this level. Ruskin Red reared up a little as the stalls opened in his Lingfield race over twelve furlongs, so he was behind all the way and a little detached from the field, and he will be much better if going with them through this middle distance next time, when he can finish a good deal closer. Waterloo Sunset ran his opening race for the season over seven furlongs and he will definitely come on a lot for this race, having been always in rear and perhaps he will now be suited by a step up to a trip over a mile or more next time out. Under Cieren Fallon, who had ridden him once before over a shorter trip last summer at Salisbury, Party Island relished the step up to a mile and a half and won very easily to delight all connections. He travelled very smoothly and strongly throughout, tracking the leader in third and moving up readily from two furlongs out, to lead inside the final stages and run on and win by a length and a half.at the post Tony Killoran's gelding has been very consistent since opening his account last July, and this triumph marked his fifth victory in just ten months.
