Tony The Gent We'll take them anyway they come, I thought it would be the other way around,. This guy has been running well here all winter and that's his ideal trip. The other fella just has a few issues and Joe felt he fell out of the gates, didn't travel great and then stayed on late. The winner has been good to us. It was James' idea to claim him for €20k, I thought he was a shade dear but to be fair the boys know what they are doing when they put in these claims. They have their homework done. He's a good fun horse. It wasn't the strongest race ever but he got a good possy and travelled well. It's great that we are here and the racing is going ahead. It's working fine for now, obviously if the situation escalates and gets worse that's a different story. For now everyone is doing everything right so well done to HRI, IHRB, the Government departments and all the racecourses are doing super work. Everyone is adhering to all the protocols. I stopped in the shops on the way up, galloped a few on the Curragh, and I probably met more people during the day than I have here so I can't see what is being done wrong.

Beleaguerment He deserved it, he's a little horse carrying a lot of weight and is very genuine,. He wasn't a dear horse and we're delighted he's had his day. The people involved in him are very good people and we're delighted to get a winner for them.

Loaded He’s ran good solid races and deserved to have a win. The mile suited him. It’s very unusual for a horse to come back from Hong Kong to win races in Dundalk but Alice (Fitzgerald) got him back. She bred him and sold him. She decided when he was so well handicapped to send him up to us and see if we could sweeten him up as he’d gone very sour out there. He got a good ride and they went good and fast which suited him. I might source a few more horses in Hong Kong now!
