After race at Thurles Thu, 23rd Feb, 2012 (1st)
He got in here under a 4lb penalty and did it well. He came out of the Clonmel race well, so we decided to run him.
After race at Clonmel Thu, 16th Feb, 2012 (1st)
He's a home-bred and won his point-to-point at Dromahane last October. I'm delighted to win a maiden hurdle with him. I stuck him in a handicap hurdle at Thurles next Thursday. He'll probably have one more run over hurdles, and then we'll leave him off and go chasing in the autumn.
