Make The Switch He did it well, he stayed at it well and will probably stay further. He's a big horse but handles that surface quite well so I'd say we'll come back here in the New Year for something. We could also go to England with him. I'm delighted for Derek Kierans, who is the biggest owner in the yard and has been very loyal. He's probably more of a summer hurdler. He probably wants good ground over jumps, a little ease in it. He's a nice dual purpose sort. He's a big horse and is probably only coming to himself now so there might be a little bit left in him. He's won a couple of races for us and should win a couple more.

Pure Nature She was very good there. I told Chris just to take his time as she was ridden quite cold on her previous two wins here. The last day here they went no gallop at all and she got caught down the rail. She needs a truely run race to be seen at her best as she's a stamina laden filly. She'll only improve, Chris said she was still a bit green. She has a lot of options now. We nominated her for Dubai and she could be on a plane out there. She was 82 today and I think 90 is the minimum for the handicaps out there so she should definitely qualify now. We're over the moon and delighted for the owners (Phoenix Thoroughbreds) as well.

Pure Nature It's capped off a great night for us,. She had a very good run the last day in Cork, when she finished second to Noel Meade's horse. I was speaking to Noel after and he thought his was a nice horse. I knew she'd improve and like this surface. She's in again on Thursday and I'd say we're going to have to run her as I'd say the handicapper isn't going to be too kind to her. I think potentially she could make a very nice juvenile hurdler. She's a nice filly and is improving all the time, I like this filly.
