AS THE EXCITEMENT BUILDS BEFORE THE NUNTHORPE, MAC ASK’S TANYA “CAN HOOF IT, HACK IT? We wait to see … MAC tells us that the NUNTHORPE WAS FIRST RUN IN 1922. So this day the 89th running? 
HOOF IT’S trainer Mick Easterby told us that HOOF IT is quick to boil over. Have to go gently, gently with him,  his friend BLUE SPINIKER keeps him company mainly. But what
happened?  WOW, WOW, WOW HAYLEY ……MARGOT DID,  DID IT TO WIN FOR HAYLEY TURNER..... FANTASTIC. HAYLEY JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE IT WAS TRUE  AS SHE BRINGS 'MARGOT DID' IN  OFF THE TRACK HEADING FOR THE WINNER’S ENCLOSURE.  MICHAEL BELL MARGOT'S TRAINER HAS PLAYED A MAJOR PART IN HAYLEY'S SUCCESS SO WHAT A WONDERFUL RESULT. RICHLY DESERVED.
REVIEW YORK THURSDAY AUGUST 18th 2011
2.30 Jaguar Cars Lowther Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies) (class 1) for 2 year old fillies 6f
Winner £61,380

“RICHARD HUGHES echoes the Boss's thoughts "They say that small is beautiful, and BEST TERMS, our pony-sized Queen Mary heroine, earned all the plaudits going when stretching her unbeaten sequence to four in the G2 Lowther Stakes on day two of York's Ebor meeting.

BEST TERMS, who had to shoulder a 3lb penalty for her Royal Ascot success, is lightning out of the stalls, and, trapping like Mick the Miller, she blitzed her rivals with a phenomenal display of early pace, shrugging off the challenge of Irish raider FIRE LILY at the furlong-pole for a comfortable success.

Bookmakers quote BEST TERMS at 12-1 for next year's 1000 Guineas, but, while overjoyed at his fifth victory in this prestigious race, Richard Hannon was taking it one step at a time with the May 19 foal. (May 2009)

He said:"BEST TERMS pinched three lengths out of the gate and never looked like getting caught. We were originally going to run her in the Prix Robert Papin in France, but she suffered a slight over-reach and we had to think again.

"However, she deserves a shot at the glamour gals now, so it will be the G1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket (Sept 24) next, and then we can dream all winter.

"Who knows whether she will stay the mile. She is very quick and she will be hard to beat in the Cheveley Park, but we will have to dip our toes in the seven furlong waters next spring, probably in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury, and that should give us some idea of whether or not she will have the stamina for the Guineas.

Richard Hughes echoed the boss's thoughts and said:"I knew that she was not just a five-furlong filly, and we only went to Ascot because you always need to stay six to win the Queen Mary. We got away with it there, but this extra distance suited her better and she is so professional and a pleasure to ride. Sure, she is small, but she has actually grown a bit since.”
