After race at Fairyhouse Wed, 17th Jul, 2019 (1st)
He's been a great servant and that's the way he likes to be ridden. A small field, drop him out and he switches off,. It opened like the Red Sea for him, he hand't enough petrol to go around them anyway. He's often run well off a break before. We thought he looked a bit chubby in himself and thought he might need it. Ronan said he just got to the line and gave a heave with him. It's nice to win another one with him. He had a little wind-op and that probably helped him a little bit as well, I'd say it was marginal enough but every little helps. He's fierce genuine but you just have to ride him that way and he often runs into traffic problems in bigger fields. The small field was ideal for him.
After race at Dundalk Fri, 20th Oct, 2017 (1st)
He had a nice run here last week. He loves running at a strong pace and it worked out tonight as they went good and hard,. He dropped the lot, settled well and came home strong. He's very consistent. Pat said when he rode him last week that it just took him a while to trust the surface and he thought he'd be better on it tonight. He loves a fast pace. He relaxes off it and it's not an un-genuine thing. He likes being off the bridle and he has a great turn of foot. We had a sprinter years ago that was the same, Snaefell. If Snaefell took a hold in a race he wouldn't beat me, but if he was off the bridle being pushed along he'd fly home. That's just his style. He'll come back here next month as there is a nice mile handicap for him.
After race at Leopardstown Sat, 8th Apr, 2017 (1st)
they went very hard up front and it set up lovely for him. Shane gave him a super ride, he never panicked and it opened up lovely for him up the straight.
After race at Galway Wed, 27th Jul, 2016 (1st)
it's always nice to get a winner at Galway and he’s a nice horse. It's hard for a four-year-old to carry that weight on that tacky ground and Shane gave him a good ride and produced him to win. He runs in my mother Margie's colours and it's nice for my father who has had a lot of treatment this year and it means a lot to get a Galway winner. In Fairyhouse he was a bit green and came on plenty in his home work. We'll see what the handicapper does now.
