we had semi-retired him but during the summer Robbie (Colgan) took him back into work even though we were so busy. I take no credit for anything as Robbie has done everything with him. He is very ironically named - he isn't nasty or anything but is a character. He is really difficult in the parade ring and today we had to get permission to go out early. He is the hardest horse to ride at home because he ducks and dives and spooks but he has been such a servant. we didn't particularly want him carrying top weight, we're having a bit of fun with him but were so unfortunate as he was to run in Limerick three times and they were cancelled. I've no idea what we'll do now. We should retire him and retire Robbie from the jumps as the Flat season is starting soon! That was so exciting and we'll enjoy today. Ms Sheila Lavery, trainer
