After race at Dundalk Wed, 30th Oct, 2019 (1st)
I sat on him for the first time last week, I didn't know a lot about him, and he gave me a beautiful feel there today, I really liked him,. We were going slow and I didn't think there was any point tucking in behind one just for the sake of one horse and a bit of cover. He travelled really smooth the whole way but he's still raw. He changed his legs behind before he does in front, which is not ideal, but I'm sure once he learns he'll be a lot better. You can never tell (how good they will be). Anyone that tells you that they know straight away is a complete liar. He gave me a really nice feel today, he's by Galileo so you'd imagine he should progress next year. I think he's a smart horse but I can't tell you how good he's going to be. Some of the horses that handle nice quick ground you get to this time of year and there's nowhere to go except Dundalk so it's a good facility for that and Dad doesn't mind running a good one.
