After race at Clonmel Fri, 8th Jun, 2018 (1st)
It is lovely for him to win and for a horse with only three runs over hurdles he jumps well. He needed all the assistance and luck he got but won nicely in the end. He needed a couple of great jumps at the last two fences and he got them. He loves the ground and that makes a big difference to him. He can probably do everything (chase, hurdle and flat) but when and where I don't know and I'm not in a hurry with him either. He'll have to go handicap chasing as he wouldn't be good enough for a novice chase. He is the first Galileo I've been lucky enough to train and he's a lovely horse and I'm lucky to have him.

Perhaps the step up in trip helped him, and the ground didn't inconvenience him. It probably inconvenienced some of the others,. He's a nice horse and is very effective on fast ground. Hopefully he can win another, and I'd imagine he will be campaigned over the summer.

his run at Leopardstown looked good enough to win this and they went a good gallop and it opened up nicely for him in the straight. He loves the conditions and stays well. He's in next weekend at Leopardstown in the 1m6f handicap but I don't think he'll get in and might go to Listowel for the premier handicap there over 1m4f if the sun continues to shine. The guys (Hickman and Johns) that own him are based in Singapore so we'll re-group at the end of the year and see what the plan is for him.

It's been a wonderful night . terrific. We have plenty of nice horses and they are finishing off the season well. They are in good form and Shane is riding great. He's a lovely horse. He came to us from England and had some very good form. We were just finding our way along with him and we'll leave it at that for the year. He was beaten a few times so we wanted to get a win, get him some confidence and find out a bit about him. He stays well and I'd say he'll improve plenty. I think he could be a very nice horse next year.
