Happaugue He's a nice horse, a fine big athletic horse,. I'm not sure Dundalk is even his surface because he's quite heavy topped and probably a turf horse really. He's a nice horse to have and he'll go jumping eventually. He's doesn't do much in front and he was babyish in the yard even. He's still a big baby and maybe those Morpheus' are bit late maturing mentally. I'm happy to get him over the line again and we gave him plenty of time off after the last time because he is big. I'm delighted with that.

Morph Speed I made an awful hash of training him! I bought him to breeze but I ended up with him. I brought him to France but he got a virus. I had ten horses over there but didn't have a winner. I ran him once here and he ran moderate over six. To be honest I'm a trader, not a trainer and focus more on the breeze-ups. He's good. His sister won the Queen Mary and bred Adelaide so it's a proper pedigree. Michael and Eddie O'Leary's sister (Ashley) bred him and has the mare. I bought him off them as a yearling. He was picked out and bought by a judge in Thomond O'Mara. It took me a long time to cop that he wanted a trip. Ross Coakley worked him in the Curragh and said 'he wants a trip' so fair play to him and he gave him a great ride there today. I'd say he'll be a lovely summer horse for hurdles, that's probably where he's headed. He's for sale as I'm a trader. I've had three runners and had a winner and a second now. I've a good strike rate!. My dad John was on the phone there. He's at home watching on TV with my mother.
