Mecklenburg he’s a lovely horse and just got a bit weak after his first run and we just had to be patient. He wants every yard of seven furlongs but there was no seven-furlong race until the 24th and he was coming out over the door at me at home so we said we’d better get him up here. I’m delighted he had the ability to win over six and he’s a smashing horse. He’s still a baby, very raw and very immature mentally. He loves that surface and is a beautiful moving horse. He’s always shown us plenty of ability and I think he’ll improve and grow up mentally.

Powerful Ted He is named after Ted Walsh junior who joined our team recently, . I was going to name him Power-something-else but Ted said 'you can't call him that' so we named him Powerful Ted. Obviously we fancied the other horse but I don't know why he ran as bad as he did, although maybe he is not a bumper horse. We knew this lad wasn't too bad and had worked very well. I thought the ground might catch him out a bit but obviously not and I'd say he is a decent horse and has a good pedigree on the dam's side. He jumps very well, is not over-big but keeps galloping. Martin (Cullinane) who owns and bred him is at a wedding and couldn't come. Martin sells all his horses and the plan would be to sell him.
