Surrounding She’s a wonderful mare and she loves it around here. I was a bit concerned about the ground but she’s getting older and probably able to handle it. She has been such a great servant to us. We’ll head back to Dundalk for the Cooley with her now. It’s amazing the enthusiasm she still has for it and seven furlongs or a mile is good for her. When she gets to the front she thinks she’s won. She parked up a bit when she got to the front but she travelled super.

Colonel Lesley It's been a while since our last winner, it was before the lockdown. We haven't had many runners and our summer was quiet. They are just coming to hand in the last fortnight. I'm delighted with him. He came out of Eugene O'Sullivan's and Neill O'Donnell recommended him to me. I wasn't so sure about him after the last day but I think I got it wrong with him, I ran him too soon and ran him over two and a half. We gave him a better chance to settle into our system since and the two miles obviously suited. I thought Conor (Orr) gave him a brilliant ride. It all worked out but I don't know what kind of a race it was or where he will go from here. He will probably stick to something similar depending on what the handicapper does. He'll jump a fence at some stage but he is still only a four-year-old. He might go to Dundalk over the winter for a staying handicap, but we'll enjoy today first.
