He looked beat and Paul gave him a great ride. I said to Pat (Keating) today that if he was going to win again it would be today. He's in good form, the ground suited him and he's won here before. He was back down to a mark that he was capable of winning off as well.

He came out of the race well at Clonmel, and we let him take his chance. He's done it well again there, and that trip is ideal. He's entered at Downpatrick on Saturday. I don't know if he'll go there but we'll see how he is after this.

He's done it well. Andrew rode him the last day and said he didn't stay (2m5f). He said to go back to two miles and he was right. I'm delighted for Pat Keating (owner) as the horse has had a few problems. He was right the last day but just didn't stay.
