Saint Helena had a fantastic run at Kempton on Monday 24th August, she ran over 1m3f on the all weather surface. She seemed to enjoyed this surface and moved well throughtout. Helena still continued to travel well when others seem to start to fall behind. We are very impressed with her performance and look forward to seeing what her next run brings!
