After race at Curragh Sun, 26th Jun, 2011 (1st)
He's a very very hardy boy. That's probably the easiest he's ever won,. We gave him a break after Punchestown as he didn't run that well. (Owner) Geoffrey (Ruddock) asked me why he wasn't going to Down Royal last week for the Ulster Derby but I told him he wouldn't be ready in time and we would go here instead. He likes it here and the ground was perfect - good ground. He'll go for the Galway Hurdle now. He failed to get into it last year but will have no trouble this time.

After race at Punchestown Wed, 21st Apr, 2010 (1st)
He's a different horse on that ground. He had a bit of a break after his Leopardstown run. We decided this was the race for him, I won it last year with No One Tells Me and if he's half as good as he is i'll be very happy. I don't think he really needs the blinkers, I just think they help him a concentrate more and he kept on really well there. He'll probably go for a flat handicap, we'll step him up to a mile and half and he's probably one that could go to Galway as he's won around there before.
