Windham Belle I was very disappointed in Naas - I fancied her in Naas because the conditions of the race suited her like today. She came up on the bad ground and there is a huge bias in Naas at the minute. I told him (Nathan Crosse) 'you have to get her out sharp today' because she has plenty of speed and I said to be careful going round the bend because she has never been round a bend. She was good and professional. She had been working very well before Naas and I was very disappointed in Naas. I'm delighted as she was only a seven grand purchase for a new woman (Carmel Delaney) who would be a cousin of John O'Dwyer who bred the Champion Hurdle winner Rock On Ruby. He introduced me to her.
