The credit really goes to Ian (Marmion, part owner) who sent me this lad and had an idea that there were a few races across these festivals that would suit him. This was the first of the ones that he had really pinpointed and scheduled for him and he was spot on. Ian is a terrific supporter and is a really good guy to deal with and I'm really lucky to have come into contact with him. Between him and Shane (Hourigan) in the yard, who takes care of this fellow and practically trains him, they have got it spot on. I don't know why but pouring it on and pouring it on really seems to suit him. He does it efficiently. We train whatever horses we're given but I had reservations about this as I assumed he'd be fit from the Flat but I was worried about the depth of fitness - whether that would be in him from the way we train him on the flat. We brought him to Jim Culloty's for a pop yesterday and he is a very casual dude at home but was set alight yesterday when he saw fences. The relentless Flat mentally doesn't suit him as well as taking a look and he loved it there. He could run in almost anything except the Corrib Stakes (for fillies and mares) at Galway but Danny felt there'd be no harm putting him in the Galway Plate, which closes tomorrow, and whether he runs in it the boys will all sit down and decide.

The bit of juice in the ground helped, and he'll make a lovely jumping horse. That was a great performance under top-weight. He's very genuine and the rain came in time for him.

It was a brave performance. They went too quick the last day and he didn't get home. He was more professional today, went through the gears and his experience told. He handled the ground and they got the best of it. He'll probably get further.
