I always thought he had a bit of a chance. He ran in a good point-to-point the last day when Paul got a good tune out of him. I've had him all this season point-to-pointing. The ground was too soft for him early on but his best run was his last on good ground. I thought he had a sporting chance but it's a bit surreal to be honest. In fairness to the Turf Club I needed the licence in a rush and thankfully it came through last week. This one will be better over fences. I've five in for the summer. I train in Batterstown, Co Meath. I rode eight point-to-point winners for Eddie Cawley. I met Paul Power on the licensing course. I worked in Eddie Cawley's with Robert Connolly who is a son of Dunroe Boy's owner Thomas Connolly.

I thought this morning that it was the stupidest thing ever to run two horses against each in other in the same colours, but they both need three miles. He is an improving horse and he has gone up thirty pounds in the handicap. He might go chasing now.

He got quite tired as he was out in front a long time. He might go to Bellewstown next,.

I had Dunroe Boy entered at Clonmel tomorrow and it's a pity I didn't leave him in! There aren't too many similar opportunities here in the next ten days so I might bring him to Perth next Thursday with a few others. My horses ran terrible all winter (Dunroe Boy's form read '9PPP0' during that period) but they are all running well now although they are not working any better at home.
