He's a good horse. After Navan we took our time with him. We've always rated him. He was off the track for two years and you need to mind him but he has plenty of ability. We've no plans . we'll see how things pan out and we'll pick and choose with him. He handles that ground but we always thought that he'd go on better too. Paul gave him a super ride and produced him very well.

The owner (Patrick McElroy) is from Castlewellan in County Down. The horse came to me three months ago, having been off for over two years (won a bumper at Newton Abbot in July 2008 on his debut for Tim Vaughan).
