Lady Scathach She was very unlucky on Sunday. We probably would have went to Leopardstown (on Saturday) if she had gotten in but she did that very well there. She was a stone lighter than anything else in it and she has a nice turn of foot when things go right for her off a nice pace. She quickened up very well in Cork the other day but she just didn't get the gaps and only got going very late. I'd say she would have hacked up with a clear run. It would be nice if she was in somewhere else in a day or two but unfortunately she's not. She could be a nice one for Galway if she goes up enough to get in as she's coming into real good form at the minute.

De Mazzaro He was in good form and he had plenty of work done,. We forgot to put the tongue-tie on him but it obviously didn't make much difference. It's great to get him off the mark on the Flat. He'll go back over jumps now. If we got a mile-and-six somewhere on the Flat we'd look at that but he'll stay mainly over jumps. I'd say a mile-and-a-half is plenty sharp enough for him and you're waiting for something to come and do him for a bit of toe. He was very unlucky here last year when Danny Sheehy dislocated his shoulder half a furlong down as he was tanking by them passing the line. Danny couldn't do anything on him that day and it was unfortunate. Over hurdles he kept improving throughout last year and he was very good in Galway when he won. The aim will be to go back to Galway.

Dollar Value Niall rode him last year in Bellewstown and said he could have went a bit quicker as all he did was stay. He made plenty of use of him today and said he had a bit of a blow and thinks he might improve a bit off that. He won over seven furlongs in England but we’ve never seen any of that pace. He won a two and a half miles hurdle for us.
