I Am Superman He's a horse that we thought a lot of last year and we stuck him in the Irish Guineas,. Obviously he's a long way off running in a Guineas but he's making shapes of being a very nice horse. That was a very competitive handicap and he's gone and made them look like handicappers. Leigh said he didn't have any choice but to make the move that he made when he made it. He didn't fight with him, let him stride on and he said when he got to the front he switched off and was idling. We might run him in the Tetrarch at the Curragh and if he was to come through that we could maybe think about running him in the Guineas. It's a long way away and I don't want to sound like a lunatic saying he's a Guineas horse after winning a handicap but he's gone and won well and he's beat some decent horses. He furnished greatly over the winter and that's really stood to him. He was second first time out at the Curragh and after that his runs petered out. Second time out he was just a bit too enthusiastic here and on his third run he was as weak as a kitten. We probably shouldn't have run him and then we threw him away and it stood to him. He's an exciting horse to have.

Geneticist He is a lovely horse who we bought at the Breeze-Ups last year. He had a little setback last year and kept getting a respiratory infection and we just gelded him and threw him out and forgot about him. It is paying dividends now as he is a horse with a bit of scope. He is a forward-going horse and wasn't drilled for the first day and we were over the moon with him when he finished second to what looked a good horse. He seems to have stepped up and improved and that ground wouldn't be for him as he has a lovely action. He looks an exciting sort of horse. We didn't get to buy any Breeze-Up horses at the last sale and this horse will now go as a wild-card to the Newmarket Horses In Training Sale next Friday. We'll turn him into cash and buy a couple of two-year-olds to keep the show on the road.

I Am Superman we thought a lot of this horse last year and he was second first time out at the Curragh. He raced a little over enthusiastic second time out at Naas, we put a line through that, and on his third run he'd just gone a little bit weak on us. We just put him away, he wintered well and strengthened up well. I thought that was good performance, carrying top weight and from that draw. He wasn't the quickest away but Leigh kept him out wide on the fresh ground down the back and at the apex of the bend was able to slot in in front and set his own fractions. He won well and he said he was just idling in front. I'm delighted with him and delighted that he's come good because we did think he was a nice horse last year. Hopefully he can progress well. He got a fancy entry on Saturday but I think we'll probably treat him like a nice horse now and we won't rush him back. We'll pick out a race for him a few weeks time. We'll see what the handicapper does and go from there.
