He was possibly a bit unlucky in the Brown Lad where he ran a huge race and it’s nice to repay the faith winning the race again for JP here (Kilfenora won this last year). I was worried about the ground as it’s very testing. He’s entered next week at Leopardstown (William Fry Handicap Hurdle) and he might sneak in now with a penalty for this. He’s won well there over two and a half and I don’t see why he wouldn’t get three (miles). We’ll see how he comes out of this before making a final decision. He’s a nice horse and has had his problems through the years but he’s come good now. Edward P Harty, trainer
