to win this again means everything. There is nothing like the banks races as it requires top courage for riders and horses. A lot of races have been modified but that’s the last gladiator stand left. . Ballyboker was always a good horse but he doesn’t stay. You have to nurse him around and he got his own way for a bit and he filled up and went away again. If he gets a breather he’ll stay well but he used to run very keen with the choke out when he was younger.

he (Ballyboker Bridge) wants a bit better ground and all the work is down to Gary and Michael Bates who I bought him off. They told me he was a good one and they were right. The rest is history and here he is now at 33/1 - there's plenty of room in the pond for the little fish.
