No Trouble he came to the yard, we sweetened him up and he looked in good form during the week. He's a grand horse and there is no reason why he couldn't step up in trip again the way he stayed on there. I think he'd get a mile-and-six no bother or even two miles. I bought him to go hurdling but I thought we'd try and get a win with him on the Flat first. He has a lovely bit of size, a smashing horse. We've already schooled him over hurdles and he's a serious horse to jump.

Parkers Hill it was unfortunate for Shane Kelly that he couldn’t ride him. He pinged the gate and got a nice lead off Rory (Cleary, on Shawaf). I was actually there way too soon and the last half-furlong he was pulling himself up. Hopefully that can change his mind a bit that he’s after getting his head in front. The last couple of times he’d made the running and Johnny (Murtagh) said take your time on him and he enjoyed it.

Nullifier Credit to Shane (brother and assistant trainer) he called me about five minutes after the run on Sunday and said it had taken nothing out of him. He was right, and Colin also jumped off him on Sunday and said you can drop him back to five if you want. He’s a typical No Nay Never, handles the ground and is a good strong colt. He’s done his job and got us a winner when we needed it. He’s given Colin his 100th winner and keeps him somewhat in the fight. We’ll put him away until next year and hope he grows into a horse. It looks like five or six will be his trip at the minute and he looks like a sprinter as well. Colin said he idled and didn’t know what to do when he got to the front. There should be plenty of improvement over the winter in him.
