Bedrock I think he'll be aiming at the Grand National race they have at Far Hills, worth USD200,000. He is running so well now they could now keep him for the Fighting Fifth or Christmas Hurdle. it was a bit of a surprise. We hoped we'd come second (to Samcro) as we thought Sharjah would need softer ground but he was race-fit. We were hoping for second and he won on merit. He got left and got stuck at the start when fourth in the Galway Hurdle and had to come wide around the bends so could have been a lot closer that day. We couldn't believe he beat Samcro today!. He has certainly gone out on a fantastic high for us and we couldn't be more pleased.

Roccia Bella I thought she had a big chance at the Curragh but she wouldn’t go into the stalls but she went in perfectly today. It was her first run in a handicap, and Gary (Halpin) said the ground was as testing as she would want it. The quicker she goes the better her action is, and he said she was bone idle. Hopefully she should be able to win again. She has the ability it’s just trying to eke it out of her.

Hamley She wasn't running at 9.50am yesterday morning to be honest but we saw there wasn't a huge field and I rang Kevin O'Ryan (jockeys' agent) and he said there's a chance of it cutting up so we said we'd let her take her chance. I was worried about the ground but it dried out all week and it's great. The plan is to go to the Curragh on Champions Weekend; she always runs well at the Curragh and will definitely get in now. She's an ideal filly for her syndicate and she always runs a good race for them.

Rockabill He's been a slow learner and he's toughed it out. We liked him early on and then he had us scratching our heads. He's started to progress like a typical Fastnet Rock, and that was even a huge step up from his last run. We think he'll stay a bit further, and he's a nice colt.
