Bread And Butter It was a lovely ride by Conor, he got a lovely tow into it. I thought the handicapper was harsh enough on him the last day. I'm delighted with that. We might look at the 0-123 over two-miles-five in Galway with him. He's only a small little horse but he jumps well.

Bread And Butter He had a little break in between runs and did well during it. He was flat to the boards at Downpatrick the last day and couldn't lie up but loved the bit of juice in the ground today. He's only a small little summer horse and hopefully the handicapper isn't too hard on him.

Skyace I bought that mare out of Willie's (Mullins) for 600 quid; she was behind my horse Dime A Dozen twice, and I went over to the Sales to buy her. I couldn't believe I bought her for that sort of money. I don't know why she was so cheap, she had no injury and was 100 percent. The crowd who own her (Birdinthehand Syndicate) are from America. She jumped like a buck today but it was probably the worst three-mile maiden hurdle I've seen for a long long time, once you took the favourite Thunder Down Under (pulled up) out of it. We'll go for a handicap mark or look for a conditions' race next. Camlann was the last horse I had which cost 600 quid; unfortunately he broke down yesterday and more than likely will now be retired.

Ferny Hollow He just ran too free on his first two runs and putting a hood on him has changed him, as have more drastic tactics in holding him up. He is lovely at home, but he takes a pull. In a race he gets a little bit upset so I think jumping will suit him a lot better. We will probably go for the Champion Bumper at Punchestown now and maybe the same for the other horse, Appreciate It.
