He is good and tough but has been struggling on the very heavy ground during the winter against jumpers but handled it better than the Flat horses today,. He is a genuine horse and is lovely to have and will now go to Killarney for the Grade 3 2m4f chase on May 14.
After race at Cork Sun, 16th Apr, 2017 (1st)
He has been a bit hit and miss to jump but he was absolutely perfect around there. We had been campaigning him mostly over hurdles because we were worried about the jumping but the way he has jumped there will give us a lot of options for next year. We never got his head in front last year, he was second I think about four or five times. He ran a couple of lovely races but just seems a bit better this year. He's a very good, genuine horse. He could probably run in a couple of good chases next year and there might even be a day or two on the Flat for him as well.
After race at Clonmel Tue, 21st Mar, 2017 (1st)
The original plan was to go to Thurles for a hurdle race at the weekend but I entered for this also. He isn't an exceptional jumper but I thought this was worth a go and we may now have a look at the Thurles race also. His jumping was as good as I've ever had him put in and I'd be lost without Dillon (Maxwell, who rode the trainer's earlier winner) who helps with his schooling - hopefully someone doesn't rob him off me now!. We're not that busy at the moment - I've 10 horse to run for the summer and I was nervous coming here today because if things didn't want well, we'd have been struggling for the summer! It worked out great though and I'm delighted.
After race at Limerick Mon, 26th Dec, 2016 (1st)
we were settling for a nice run going to the second last but we were lucky to win - although my mother says you should never apologise for being lucky!. he was a great horse to get starting off training and Dr Heffernan (owner) has a few other horses with me too so it’s great to get a win. He’s been second for us four times and it was nice for him to get a bit of luck. To be fair to him he did dig deep on the run-in and he stays three miles. Today was the plan and while he is in on New Year’s Eve, he has had a hard enough race there and won’t go. He’s not a brilliant jumper of fences but it is something we’ll have to reconsider again because he’ll have to step up to a higher level over hurdles after that.
After race at Limerick Sun, 29th Mar, 2015 (1st)
He is a very, very good jumper and has great scope. He doesn't get too high over his fences but is quick getting from A to B.
