Toughari Shane Foley rode him in Roscommon and said to put a pair of blinkers on him, go out in trip and he’ll win. Then a hurdle race came up in Killarney and it didn’t work out as the favourite wandered about and frightened my lad.

Court Maid I told David that these might be a bit slicker than she is, more experienced that her, and to maybe wait a bit with her which he did,. The all got racing six furlongs out and David decided no and came late. That was the deciding thing. I was happy enough with her jumping even though she was maybe a bit sketchy at a few. I was expecting her to win and she did. She wants three miles but doesn't want winter heavy so we'll see where we go from here. There is supposed to be a good program for novice mares so we'll test that now. I'm thrilled with her, she's well bred and is a great mare really as she's won seven now. I was delighted with her jumping, she was a bit sketchy compared to Galway, but I was happy enough with her. We'll find a mares novice and I'll definitely try not to come back in trip.
