A Wave Of The Sea They've all ran well so far and it's nice to get a winner. I'm delighted to win a big one for JP,. He struggled a little bit in graded company and then when you go into handicaps it's a different ball game, it just took him a couple of runs. The last day was a bit better and then today I thought he jumped very well, as good as he's jumped, and that was probably the difference. Simon is a good rider. He's been riding a bit of work for us and rides a bit of work for JP. He gave him a fantastic ride. He could easily go to Cheltenham. We'll see how he comes out of it and see what the handicapper does.

Born Patriot He's a nice horse and whatever he does over hurdles, he's a fine big horse and will be grand over fences. He's a pure galloper. My wife Ber rides him out every day and she was confident coming here today. He works well at home but it's hard for a four-year-old in that race getting no allowances. Anything he did at home he did very well. It's a good prize and a lovely series to have.
