Bowerman He's an unbelievable horse. Colin said he's so relaxed. We worked him up here during the week and he was very good. He's a dream horse to have and I'm delighted for the lads, the Total Recall Racing Club. They're very loyal owners and have been very very lucky. That's the first group race I've ever won, so I'll remember it. He's probably going to be finished for a while but if some of the middle east races open up later on the year he'll head out to one of those places - Dubai or he could go to Bahrain or Doha if we can get an invitation. I'm thrilled to bits. I'm lucky to have two or three very nice horses and that's what it's all about. When you get those type of horses you can go an awful lot more places. I know what it's like coming down here with 47-65 horses. I'm 18 years at it now and we've been lucky to get good owners in. I owe a lot to the late Bart O'Sullivan, who passed away last year, as he introduced me to a lot of new owners from England and we've really prospered. The Total Recall lads have been with me since I started and we've had 36 or 37 winners. We had Beau Michael, Beau Warrior, Beau Satchel, winners at Galway, and I'm blessed to have them.

Jan Wellens He’s a fine stamp of a horse and could turn into a jumper. He loved that ground. We could step him up in trip anytime we want but that trip is ideal for him at this stage of his life. Ronan thought he could have won a bit cosier if he had a little more luck. He’s only learning the job and hopefully there is another one or two before he’s on his way.

Bowerman he’s 6lb better lighter on the grass and we always felt there was a big pot in him. He’s a very high class horse and I’d say his handicap days are over now. Our original plan was to run in the Lincoln at the start of the year and then go for the Royal Hunt Cup but I’ll settle for this! . He’ll go for Listed and Group races now and is in the Alleged Stakes. The guys have had a lot of fun with this horse and we’ll just keep rocking. It’s going to be hard when you step up another level but he’s well capable of doing it.
