The team at a Norfolk national hunt training stables is celebrating a stellar season thanks to a pair of first-rate performers.
Caroline Fryer Racing's Browick Hall Stables, near Wymondham, is winding down for the summer after consistent wins from seven-year-old mare Goodnight Charlie and 10-year-old bay gelding Riddlestown.
Miss Fryer, 44, said she was thrilled with how they had both performed.
She said Riddlestown was at an 'all-time high' and had hopes he would continue to develop, after winning a race at Towcester Racecourse in May.
Miss Fryer said: 'He has won five races since March.

'He always wins his share of races - usually three or four a season, but for some reason he has just excelled himself this year and is just improving with every run.
'His jockey, Jack Andrews, also gets on particularly well with him.'

Miss Fryer said Goodnight Charlie had won three of her past four races.
She said: 'Although she's seven, she's very immature and it's taken a while for her to get her act together. But now she's got it she's just brilliant.'
The horses trained at the Browick Hall Stables are owned by others.
Miss Fryer said she was now on the look out for more horses to join the stables.
She said: 'We're putting together a new racing club and we're looking for some syndicates to try and encourage new owners to join us.
'We've got room for 17 horses, and we've two all-weather gallops to train them on.
'We have a water treadmill, a horse walker and an outdoor arena.
'We're not far from Newmarket and we've really got everything on our doorstep.'
Miss Fryer has been a licenced national hunt trainer since 2013, and was a point-to-point trainer before that.
She said: 'I just love national hunt - I'm in awe of the horses and have such admiration for them and their athleticism.'
