The owners (Mrs John Magnier) have been very patient as he hurt himself when he fell in Killarney last August. Ger Kelly in Fethard Veterinary did a great job as he had a chip in a bone in his hock. He was supposed to run in the Festival at Punchestown but when we schooled him he overreached himself and he couldn't run. He was off for about a week and I thought he might be a bit short today but he jumped himself there. He was probably the only horse that jumped well. Hopefully he'll improve and he'll probably end up in the west at the end of July. He might go for the Galway Plate qualifier in Kilbeggan.

Paul said coming down the hill he thought he was beaten and he thinks the horse in front (Fire In Soul) stopped, which made life easier for us; had a very good jump at the second last and won quite well,. He did think he was in trouble but it was nice and when he does it, he is impressive and he learned much more today than the last day. I'll discuss it with the owner and decide where we go next but he has done very well to win twice in five days.

I suppose, because of the ground, the jumpers are a little bit behind and I was concerned he might not be fit enough to win. He had a good blow and hopefully he'll go on from there. I thought he was a pretty high class horse as a bumper horse but the problem was he was too keen for his own good. Paul said he's gone a little bit the other way and switched off. That's maybe the key to him, that he's reserving a bit of energy for the correct part of the race.
