He is in the Galway Hurdle and that win might just get him into the bottom of the big amateur handicap as well. When he is in such good form I would like him to take his chance in one of them. He has been a great servant and even though he is quite small hopefully he will keep improving. It is great for his owner Sebastian Curran (from Sandycove in Dublin) as he also bred the horse.

I'd suppose he was entitled to do that. Up in trip everything happened a bit easier for him and we might even go a little bit further.

He's a very small horse but he seems to have an awful lot of ability. We didn't really know how he'd go on the ground as he'd won on good to firm but we claimed seven off him meaning he was getting plenty of weight off the principals. He travelled great for the young lad and jumped very well. I think the seven pounds made the difference. Ruby (Walsh) won on him at Ballinrobe and he actually felt after his last run at Cork (2nd there) that he was after improving a good bit and now it turns out he was right. Kevin is a good lad for the 7Ib claim. We could look at some of the novice races at Cheltenham in October or November for the horse now.

His first run in a maiden at Leopardstown was unbelievable (finished second to Unanimous in July of last year), but he absolutely went downhill after that. He obviously had the form to win today, judging by his last run, but I was just afraid after what happen after Leopardstown. He has always shown an awful lot of pace and we probably shouldn't have ever run him on the flat as he is by Dr Massini. We will find a winners race for him now and he wants ground good. He is owned by Sebastian Curran who is twenty. He also bred him and his father owns one of our better horses, Star Of Aragon. I feel sorry for Tom (Thomas Doran) today. He would have rode him tonight only for what happened the last day.
