Solar Heat She was entitled to be bang there,. She needed it the last evening and Ben knew her this evening. He gave her a peach of a ride. She was brought into the race lovely and came with one run. She won't keep coming back here and can run over hurdles and fences. We'll pick something for her in the near future. There will be plenty of opportunities for her over the summer and we'll try and win a few more. representing

Hareth The ground and the track suited him as he needed every yard of it. He won a good handicap hurdle here. He’s in the three-mile (Alanna Homes Handicap Hurdle) in Punchestown (on Thursday) but I don’t know if he’ll run. It comes plenty soon but we’ll see how he comes out of this and consider it. On his hurdle rating, as with the second, he looked well enough in and that’s the way it worked out. He’ll keep going for a bit but he needs a break at some stage.

Black Tears She would have learned loads from the first day when she was very green and Lisa said today it did her no harm that things got a bit messy because she was able to get a lead into the straight. I'd say they are two good fillies and they pulled ten lengths away from the third. Gordon reckons if she is ok after this that she'll go for the €100,000 bumper in Fairyhouse at the Easter festival. She'll then go out on her summer holidays before going hurdling next season.

The Granson I was very afraid of Gordon's horse (Crezic) and on paper you'd say he shouldn't beat him but you can't run away from one either. I was hanging nicely down the home straight and it was a good job he had the stands' rail because I couldn't steer him and couldn't get a good belt into him. I don't know how well Jack (Kennedy, Crezic) was going but my lad keeps going. In his bumpers all he was doing was galloping and he had some good form. I'm delighted for his owners Padraig Coffey (from Portarlington) and his son-in-law Tadhg Maher (who runs a bar in Lanzarote) as this horse had had stop-starts and gaps between his runs with small issues. It's grand to repay them and hopefully he can go on to something better.
