Lord Erskine He's a decent horse on his day but he's had problems and it's just taken a long time to get him back,. He was a bit keen today and the jumping seemed to wake him up a little bit. He handles that ground well and stays well. Hopefully things stay right with him, it's a long time since he won the Irish Cesarewitch here. He'll keep on going over the winter. It's nice for the owner Jerry Nolan who is a very patient man, it has paid off. There might be something for him over two-and-a-half or three miles at Leopardstown over Christmas.

Elite Trooper Grey he didn’t jump great, but he travelled fairly well. Turning in I had a good bit left and I just kinda wanted to be there in case he did make a mistake. In fairness to him, he stuck at it. I’d imagine he would progress. He has plenty of speed but would want to brush up on his hurdling. But those hurdles are very forgiving. They’re rubber, so when you hit one a belt they don’t really learn from it. He was getting away with it out there but hopefully his jumping will sharpen up and I’d say he’ll be okay going forward.
