Macaban City that’s my first winner. I’ve been training a while and took a break from it in 2015 until 2017. Thankfully this lad has obliged and it’s a big help. I train in Tyrrellspass with half a dozen horses in and gearing more towards the Flat but I take whatever I get. I have a small operation with my own gallop. I was a work rider for the late Cecil Ross and came to it through hunting and cross country. This horse is trip versatile. The step up in trip did the job lovely but he’ll probably win over a mile and two if he breaks a bit smarter. He seems to be improving with each run.

Mogwli It's great for the young fella and great for the missus (wife Amanda) who bred him. We have a lovely Raven's Pass half-brother being broken at the moment. He broke well and there is lovely fresh ground down the rail. He just kept him happy and I thought the horse fought them off well but I thought we were just going to be caught on the line.

Mogwli I'm delighted for the young lad, it's his third ride. He works hard in the yard. He's a local lad and is trainer Micky Cleary's son. I'm delighted with that, my wife Amanda bred the horse so she'll be happy. It's the second win for the little horse and we have a half-brother by Raven's Pass going to the sales. He doesn't like the wind and having it behind him was the best thing for him. He rode a grand race and I loved the way he fought back at the finish.

Call Of The Jungle It's great to get her a win. She's a tough hardy little filly,. I thought Nathan was very good on her today as they went very hard and he didn't panic on her. He was good and strong in the finish and she stayed out the last 100 yards very well. I'm delighted to win for Patrick and Anne-Marie Burns, they bred her themself. Rathasker sponsored the last race and she's by one of their stallions so it's all good. When you get put up 5lb for being second you have to go back for a maiden.
