Cluan Dara It’s a long time since he won his maiden hurdle in Fairyhouse but he’s had injury problems,. My daughter Gillian was second to Samcro in a bumper on this horse. He had some good form but had tendon issues. He’s a half-brother to The Little Yank.

Dromore Lad I love that little horse - he is a cracker and is so tough. He had a lovely mark and he is just a dour, dour stayer. He wants four miles, goes on heavy, is by Flemensfirth and is as tough as nails. There is a 3m5f handicap chase now and he could also go for the Welsh National over Christmas. I'm delighted for Frank Reynolds (owner) who has had a lot of winners but that is his first big winner. That's Sean's first National winner and he has also ridden out his (3lb) claim with that win. It's a grand way to lose his claim!
