Illusory It’s lovely to get a winning bracket for her. Shane kept it very simple on her and she’s very game and genuine. They didn’t go much of a gallop and she stuck at it well. When the other horse came to challenge her, she picked up again. She’s a lovely kind filly to train and she has a big heart. It’s our first winner for Ballylinch and I’ll talk to John O’Connor to see what they want to do. I feel there is more to come from her and she could be a nice filly to go handicapping with over the summer on grass. She still has a bit of strengthening to do. She gets that trip well and will probably get further if needed.

Royal Pippen he has a really good pedigree and I really thought he was a proper horse but just needed that ground. He is out of a Group winning mare who is by Lope De Vega so he loves soft ground but not quick, and he is better than most horses are on soft but can go on good. He knows nothing and this could be a real horse. The way he did that, for what he has done, he could be anything; he is for sale.
