maybe we were a bit lucky with the other (Naturally Blond) falling but being honest, it has been a tough week at home as we lost Wee Tiger. It has been a tough week to be honest but it was nice to round it off like that. We're looking at having six or seven horses for the winter and this horse will run through the winter and will handle heavy ground, so we're lucky that way. Crackerdancer has been retired through injury and I don't think she has been covered yet. We'd love to have the likes of her again.

I’m delighted for the boss man (father and owner Liam) as he’s had to be patient with that lad. He’s disappointed a few times and I thought this race might suit him. He loves those conditions as they are not able to quicken away from him and he’ll just stay galloping. Johnny said he probably got there a bit soon but the horse took off and when he done that he had to keep the revs up to keep going. When the other horse came back he put his head down. He’s not ungenuine but the blinkers just get him to focus that bit more. He’ll probably run over fences now around the middle of January, and we’ll keep him going in that ground. We kept him ticking over during the summer because he’s so gross but we’ll give him a small break next summer.

we were hoping he’d run a big race and were hoping the blinkers would do the job on him. It has taken us a while to get him right and a huge thanks to Jim Bergin, an osteopath, who has done a huge job on him. He has turned him inside out. He is a fine big strong horse and finds it easier on that heavy ground than other horses - we’ll see what the handicapper does now. Adam has had ten rides for me but that’s his first winner and he is a very obliging fellow and I’m delighted to give him a winner.
