He is what he is, he's not easy to predict. He ran a cracker and he (Sean Flanagan) said he loved the ground and jumped great. We've been putting claimers on him and he's a big, big, strong fella and going back to Sean probably did him. That's no disrespect to the lads that have been riding him but just a stronger jockey was a help to him. He got a good tune out of him and they couldn't go far enough. I always thought he could be a Grand National horse but obviously that's it for the season as he wants extreme distances and there are no more of them. We'll see what the plans are, I know he would have been very close to the for sale sign before today but he might get a reprieve. We might try him in the Becher Chase in December. That could be a race for him because he's strong and a tough sort.

I think the world of him. Limerick was a disaster as it was too short, the ground was terrible and he made mistakes,. I knew he was in good knick coming here today. He's a huge horse and is going to improve. He wants three miles. He still made a couple of mistakes-he was great long but getting in tight was a problem. I don't know if he'll go to Cheltenham but I'm sure he'll be entered for the RSA and the four miler.
After race at Navan Sat, 6th Dec, 2014 (1st)
.I've always thought he's a very nice horse. He's a full-brother to Soldier Of Destiny but he's a much better model and he stays really well. When he was beaten the first day the ground was a bit quick and the last day Paul (Carberry) said he just didn't jump that well.
After race at Navan Sun, 12th Jan, 2014 (1st)
It probably wasn't ideal to start him off over that far. I don't think he needs 2m7f but he definitely needs further than two miles (the distance of the other maiden hurdle on card),. The only real mistake he made was when the race was quickening up but he jumped well otherwise. He's still a bit of a baby. He'll probably go for a novice now over two-and-a-half and we'll take it from there but he'll really be a chaser in time.
After race at Navan Sat, 21st Dec, 2013 (1st)
He's a lovely horse, a great looking horse and a fabulous walker. He's a full-brother to a horse we lost called Sword Of Destiny. He had a hell of an engine but didn't have the athleticism that this horse has. He's still a big baby and I don't know whether he'll go jumping or not now. We'll talk about it over Christmas. He stays really well and loves that ground.
