MCBIRNEY made the long trip to Haydock worthwhile when landing his second win on the trot on 19th. The ground at Haydock was superb and that was what had made us send him there for his first run on the turf. Haydock is a top-class track and they look after owners very well and the condition of the track was a credit to them. BIRNEY was given a very good ride by Andrew Heffernan, whose 23rd birthday it was, and Andrew is now only 2 winners from losing his claim. He has a very good strike rate for us. BIRNEY was well shouted home by part-owners Tik and Toby Saunders, who share the horse with Paul and Sue. Tik did all the pre-training on the horse and he caused her some problems, especially with his aversion to sheep - not a good thing on a farm! Hopefully, he can continue to progress if the handicapper does not over-react.
